Ocean Safari of Boating Full Day: A wonderful experience of boating in Zanzibar aboard a local dhow departing from the beautiful beach of Fumba on the southwest coast of Zanzibar, where picturesque sceneries are worth a postcard.
Fumba waters are between Zanzibar and the mainland, lying on the Zanzibar Channel, which makes this area almost always calm.
The crystal clear waters and beautiful snorkelling landscapes will be a highlight of this trip. Your day starts with spotting dolphins and maybe whale; from your dhow you’ll admire these playful mammals in the tranquil Indian Ocean.
Now, it’s time to step into paradise and appreciate the wonders of mother nature: leave your shoes, cell phone, IPod and all likewise stuff on the boat, and walk on this “whitey sandy bank”. Feel under your feet the fine white sand, look how it’s delightfully surrounded by blue waters and covered by a blue-sky; seriously, what more can you ask for?
Well, we say you deserve more! Snorkelling here is stunningly beautiful; this area is part of the Menai conservation and largely unspoiled. Our friendly crew is ready to hand you our high standard snorkelling gear and guide you to the best-kept underwater treasure to see all colourful fish and sometimes turtles. If you choose to just chill on the sand bank, refreshments will be served throughout. From here you are taken to swim in a natural pool sitting between old coral rocks and mangrove trees, and there are no crocodiles!
It is now time to go to Kwale Island to enjoy your seafood buffet, seated almost in the ocean; rock lobster, prawns, calamari, octopus, 2 types of fish, coconut sauce and rice and chapatti- yummy! Dessert consists of almost 10 different types of exotic fruits and Zanzibar coffee. Take a sun bed, relax and reflect on this tiny paradise that belongs to you for a day and then back to Fumba- what a happy ending!
