Dhow Cruises

The best way to experience the glorious Zanzibar sunset. On a traditional wooden dhow with the wind in your sail and a glass of wine in your hand as you cruise along watching the setting sun cast gold and amber hues on the North Zanzibar coast.

Whether you would like a romantic moment with your partner or just a fun evening with family or friends, we have different boats that can accommodate you.

The sunset cruise leaves at 16:30 from our beach at Kendwa Rocks, and returns around 18:30, just after the sun has set . We first head for Kendwa reef where if you like, you will be treated to a glimpse of Zanzibar’s underwater bounty on a guided snorkelling tour just before the sun sets. When you have had your fill of snorkelling, get back on the boat, crack open the ice box and dig in to the wonderful liquid and edible treats that it holds as the sun dips below the horizon and the boat leisurely sails back.

Included in this excursion:

  • Beer or Wine
  • Sodas and Water
  • Crisps and snacks
