About Local Ocean Trust Marine Conservation Centre

The Local Ocean Trust Marine Conservation Centre is an interactive and educational centre promoting marine conservation in the area.

The Centre is the first of its kind on the Kenyan coast and celebrates the varied marine habitats of Watamu. Their mission is to instill an appreciation of the beauty and wonders of the marine world, particularly the underwater one, which few Kenyans have had the opportunity to witness.

Attractive murals and illustrated displays provide fascinating information on intertidal zones, mangroves, coral reefs, and open ocean, sea turtles and Mida creek.
