Our most recommended Zanzibar Archipelago Dhow Cruises

  • Zanzibar North Coast & Turtle Sanctuary Tour

    1. Zanzibar North Coast & Turtle Sanctuary Tour

    The most popular beaches of Zanzibar are in Nungwi. This is mostly because the tides do not have such a huge impact on the beach. But, did you know that Nungwi is also the capital of local dhow manufacturing? Find out all about how these impressive sailing vessels are made and get the chance to see local craftsman in action. Later, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. After that, experience a real turtle sanctuary. Here, turtles are treated and healed of any illnesses before being released to the ocean. Get the chance to swim with these incredible animals and feed them.  All fees paid here contribute towards turtle welfare and the education of tourists on their impact to the local environment.

    Great experience to be able to feed the turtles and be in their environment. Must visit experience.

  • Zanzibar Full-Day Cruise on the Sandbank and Island

    2. Zanzibar Full-Day Cruise on the Sandbank and Island

    Arrive by car at Fumba village and continue with a wooden boat cruise to Sandbank. The crew will set up your tent while you chill on the sandbank paradise. Enjoy a glass of Tanzania cold white wine, soft drinks, and exotic fruits.

    Head to Kwale island, where you will get to your seafood barbeque table under the shade for a delicious lunch. Go swimming, snorkeling, or relax on the shore.

    Take a short walk on the other side of the island to enjoy the lagoon and the 500 years old baobab tree before taking a traditional Dhow sailing vessel to return to the main island.
