The tour was perfectly organized. Great experience with the dolphins, snorkeling, staying on a big sandbar. BUT: The booking page contains incorrect information. The tour lasts 6 hours instead of the specified 3 hours. The tour was only booked for us, without other passengers. The pickup location options on the map are also incorrect. They pick you up from anywhere in Stonetown. The map entry where the boat starts is also wrong. Correct: North of Matemwe Beach. Who is responsible for the presentation of the booking page on Getyourguide? Conclusion: Everything was much nicer than described on the booking page.

We did not expect much but we were totally surprised. Everything was planned perfectly. Very friendly driver and also the captain really tried his best so we could see the dolphins. He tried all he could and we have been very lucky and have unforgettable memories from that trip. Thank u!!!

Brilliant with a guide at the top A big thank you to Teymour who accompanied us throughout this adventure I recommend you to do at least once in your life

Such an unbelievable experience!! A true highlight of our trip to Zanzibar and a must even if you aren’t going to jump in to swim with them.
