Dhow Safari

Discover Stone Town’s Offshore Treasures

Sail on a traditional local dhow with no thrills and lounge on a sparkling white sandbank.
The traditional dhows of the Swahili coast are still in use for transporting goods across the Indian Ocean up to today.
The history of the wooden dhows goes back to the monsoon times and connected Zanzibar with Oman and the orient.
The Dhow culture is extremely interesting and sailing on a dhow is the ultimum experience you can make when on this side of the world.
We snorkel off the coast of Bawe island where the coral bouquets and reef fish are colorful as well as abundant.
This is probably one of the best snorkel sites on the island just off the coast of Stone Town!
After the snorkel we enjoy a Zanzibar style BBQ picnic lunch and soak up the rays. It’s the perfect escape from Stone Town’s hustle and bustle, and a lovely memory to take home.
We try to do this on the sandbank but if its too busy out there we might just do it right on the dhow.
This lovely day out can be done individually or with a group of friends.
Out of respect to the captain and crew we don’t serve alcoholic drinks; however if you would like to bring a bottle of bubbles or wine feel free!
We start the safari at 1000am and end at around 1500pm.
