Start your tour with a hotel pickup to Forodhani Port by luxury air-conditioned coach, or alternatively meet your host directly at the port. At Forodhani you’ll hop aboard your luxury dhow, and then set off on your 2-hour cruise to the island of Chumbe. On the way, make use of the dhow’s facilities; perhaps stroll around the wide open decks, relax on comfortable sun loungers or even drink some beers!

On arrival to Chapwani Islands, the smallest of the three islands, you’ll have roughly one hour to spend at leisure, where you’ll find pristine coral reefs, a chance to do some snorkeling.

At a pre-arranged time, board your dhow and sit down for a gourmet à la carte lunch with drinks while cruising across the sea to Chumbe Island. As you approach the island, discover the most successful eco-tourism projects, and then disembark to explore Chapwani’s colorful Island independently.

After roughly two hours at leisure here, hop back aboard your boat and cruise to your third island of the day – Bawe. While traveling, your host will speak to you about island excursions that you can join if you wish. Opt to visit Bawe Island – a classic Doric monument on the northernmost tip of the island – or visit the private cottages scattered along the beach front. Alternatively, just relax on the island’s sun-drenched beaches.

The journey back to Forodhani Port takes approximately 25 Minutes. On arrival at Forodhani Port, you’ll be transferred the short distance back to your hotel where your tour ends.
