Full description
This cruise vessel is the only excursion boat of its kind in Zanzibar, with a capacity of 35, ample shade, solid seating and tables, private toilet & change room, shower, twin deck, walk around capability, swimming platform, cool drinks, two Mercedes inboard engines, and above all a great friendly crew. This vessel is equipped with everything you need to ensure your tour is relaxing, exciting and memorable.  The 3-Island Day Tour will first take you from the Yacht Marina Verde to Changuu/Prison Island (which hosts the famous giant tortoises, Peacocks, Dik-Dik Antelopes, historical monuments and colonial buildings, such as the old prison) and with a little luck you will see dolphins or turtles on the way. After Changuu, your vessel makes her way to the coral gardens of Bawe Island for snorkelling at the coral garden or swimming across to the island beach. Whilst you swim and snorkel, your crew will be onboard, cooking up a delicious lunch for you. After a good rest, you will cruise onwards to the amazing Zanzibar Sandbank where you can enjoy beach leisure at its finest. Immerse yourself in the crystal clear blue waters or relax upon the fine sands for some sunbaking. In the afternoon, you will cruise back close along the coast and past Stone Town which provides for an ideal opportunity to take memorable holiday photos. At around 5:00 PM, dock back at the Yacht Marina for comfortable disembarkation.
