Meet your guide in the Heart of Stone Town and head to Forodhani Port by luxury, air-conditioned coach. You’ll set sail from here for the island of Chumbe, roughly half an hour away, during which the cruise hostess will provide information about the islands.

When you arrive in Chumbe, the smallest of the three islands, you will have 1-hour of free time to wander around this endearing island. Here, visit some local bungalows, discover some wild animals that are very rare around the world.

Back on traditional dhow, enjoy lunch while sitting comfortably on the table and admiring the views of the Indian Ocean Sea during approximately 1 hour, on your way to Prison Island. Discover the giant tortoise in this beautiful Island, do some snorkeling and chill up yourself on Indian Ocean Beach.

When you return back on board, the tables will be set for the second lunch sitting. You have already had your lunch, relax on the Dhow’s deck and enjoy the warm breeze as you sail to your last stop, the smaller island of Chapwani. When you arrive, you can either join a sightseeing tour or do some snorkeling or relax down the beach with mouthwatering drinks.

The journey back to Forodhani Port takes approximately twenty minutes. On arrival, you’ll be transferred the short distance back to central Stone Town where your tour ends.
