What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Stone Town, Zanzibar City Tanzania

Enjoy this stunning sunset cruise on a local dhow.

Leave Stone Town in the late afternoon and cruise along the coast, slicing through the clear turquoise water. Sit back, relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the ocean as you hear the ripple of water on the sides of the dhow. Drinks and light snacks will be served.

The sounds of the hustle and bustle of Stone Town grow faint in the distance until they seem only in a memory. Sink back into the dhow bench and enjoy the romance of Zanzibar Island while the sun sets down with its beautiful orange colors. The fiery golden-sun setting beyond the horizon is breathtaking as it makes the sky a magical canvas of shades of pinks, purples, blues and orange.

On board our dhow we have a personal guide who will accompany you on your cruise and give you a tour of Stone Town from the water as well as be able to answer any questions that you may have. Arrive back to the shore at 6:30 pm
