Cruise to the Coral Reef & Beach
Your cruise to the coral reef will take about 30 minutes. We recommend you to remain on the upper deck at the beginning, where your guide will provide information about Zanzibar’s history, nearby islands and Stone Town. You are free to stay on the upper or lower deck during the tour. Once you approach the reef, your guide will advise you to move to the lower deck to start exploring the marine life through our large unbreakable windows, accompanied by fish/coral charts and guide’s explanations.
After approximately 1.5 hours our speedboat will pick you for the nearby sandbank adventure, where you will meet our hospitality staff and the designated picnic tent.
The lower deck is equipped with A/C, USB charging ports, large viewing windows, life jackets and seats for 8 passengers. Please note, that there are no toilets on board.
Your guide and diver will take free memory pictures of you through the large windows from outside the submarine. However, passengers are not allowed to swim, dive or snorkel during the tour.
