Cruise the Zanzibar Archipelago in a Traditional Dhow

Timeless vessels of wood and fabric, dhows have been navigating Zanzibar’s waters for over 1000 years. 

They’re spacious and comfortable on deck. So sit back and feel the wind pass your ears, as you cruise around the Zanzibar coastline. You’ll travel with a sail as dhows do not have motors. And it can feel like you are experiencing a living piece of history.

This is a flexible and private experience. You can choose for a short sunset dhow sail, or something more adventurous, including multi-day cruises around the island including accommodation on the beach.
