Expatriate insurance news: Kenyan sea-diving becoming more popular

Expatriates with international medical insurance may be among the growing number of people who are taking part in diving off the coast of Kenya.

Tourism board director Angie Sloan declared that the activity is becoming increasingly popular and noted that the south of Mobasa is a particularly good location for both snorkelling and scuba diving.

"Visitors can also swim with friendly whale sharks," she declared, adding that other watersports include deep sea fishing for wahoo, 1,000-pound sharks, blue marlin, tuna and other game fish.

The Kisite-Mpunguti marine reserve "has some of the best dive sites on the coast", including a "12-metre dive ideal for an encounter with bottlenose dolphins and hawksbill turtles", she stated.

Kenya's holiday industry experienced a record-breaking period during the first quarter of 2011, with January experiencing 40 per cent more visits than the same month a year earlier, according to official figures from the country's tourist board.
