Dhow Sunset Cruise Boat Trip Zanzibar

Today we will set off to a beautiful boat cruise along the shores of Zanzibar!

Step on board of our traditional dhow sailing boats that have cruised the coast of Zanzibar for hundreds of years. Your crew will tell you old stories of Stonetown and the spice merchants that used to make Zanzibar famous all around the world. You will see the coast from a unique view while enjoying a salty breeze and the beautiful colors of the turquoise water beneath you. Musicians will take over the sounds playing taarab, songs of love and loss, on violin and oud while you can enjoy the atmosphere as well as a seafood platter and a selection of juices and wine. We encourage you to sink back into the comfortable cushions and enjoy the romance of Zanzibar while the sunset begins, painting the sky in magnificent colors of orange, red and purple while watching the scenery drift by.

We offer dhow cruises from different spots around the island so please contact us to make an arrangement for you in the region of your accommodation.
