OCEAN SPORTS STORY

Ian Pritchard sailed a small wooden boat into Watamu Bay in 1952. He had a look around, saw that he’d landed in paradise and promptly bought the plot of land upon which now sits one of Kenya’s best-loved beachfront hotels.

Ian was called into service to fight the Mau Mau and upon his return he found his boat rotten and useless for the water. Unfazed, he turned his vessel into an extremely popular beach bar. Ian’s original boat still stands as the Main Bar of Ocean Sports Resort.

Unfortunately, Ian suffered a terrible accident whilst water skiing and ended up paralyzed from the neck down. He was still very young. This did not stop him from taking up mouth-painting (Ocean Sports Bar boasts a self portrait by the man) and rock and roll dancing in his wheelchair till the early hours. This is testimony to the spirit in which Ocean Sports was founded.

Over the years Ocean Sports was developed into a small beach front hotel . It became a popular meeting place for people from all over Kenya and abroad. Sunday lunches at Ocean Sports became well known as did New Year’s Eve. Both events still popular to this day.

Recently there have been massive improvements to the appearance and standards of Ocean Sports Resort. The addition of the wonderful wooden deck on the beach front allows guests to sit and dine right over the beach and enjoy the sound of the waves, cool breeze and beautiful view.

Ocean Sports Resort continues in the tradition of being a great place to eat and relax, with many sporting opportunities, an unbeatable location and the whole Ocean Sports experience unforgettable.
