Dolphin safari: Duration-Full Day
This full day guided excursion begins at 9h00 when you are picked up from your hotel and transferred by minibus to the fishing village of Fumba, 18 kilometres away. Here you will be provided with a life jacket demonstration followed by a briefing on the days excursion. You will then board the dhows and set off in search of the dolphins (85% chances). The species frequently found at Menai bay are spinner and bottlenose dolphins. You will swim with dolphins if they stay close to the boat, but are unlikely to be able to touch the dolphins as they are of course wild animals.
You will then go on to one of the selected snorkelling locations. Here you will snorkel while accompanied by a snorkelling guide to show points of interest and to assist with beginners. Snorkelling equipment will be provided. You will then move on to another island or sand bank for lunch. Lunch is a traditional Zanzibar meal and typically includes a selection of barbecued fish, rice, lentils and fish curry. Chilled fresh fruit juice, mineral water and bottled soft drinks are available throughout the day. You will spent the remainder of the afternoon relaxing, swimming or snorkelling.
Return to Fumba by sail, if wind permits; setting off around 16h00, the journey takes approximately one hour. You will be transferred back to your hotel.
