Lamu Dhow Cruise Experience

Step aboard a traditional wooden dhow – a sailing vessel that has plied these waters for centuries. Feel the gentlest of breezes fill the main sail and pull the small craft effortlessly through the water.

Admire the inherent skill of the crew as they tighten ropes or haul a flapping fish on to the deck. Drift lazily along the channels between islands. Be the king of all you survey – extraordinary architectural styles that disappear into mangrove forests, breaching dolphins, and pristine secluded beaches among them.
