Join the romantic Stone Town Harbour cruise with a stunning Sunset atmosphere & culinary snack-delights on the deck of our semi-submarine. As marine life transitions to night, the vessel’s powerful under-water lights illuminate the ocean for an unforgettable nighttime journey
Harbour Sunset Cruise
Start your cruise on the top deck, where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the sunset and Stone Town from the sea. The submarine is a perfect location to witness the lively atmosphere of the Forodhani Gardens, providing a glimpse into the vibrant evening lifestyle enjoyed by the locals and tourists in Zanzibar. Your knowledgeable guide will share essential historical facts and insights about the buildings that have contributed to Stone Town’s designation as a World Heritage Site.
To enhance the experience, toast with a glass of sparkling non-alcoholic champagne as the sun goes down. After sunset, the captain will illuminate the underwater lights, to observe passing fish around the vessel.
Finally, you’ll return to the Floating Platform for your transfer back to the shore or steps (depending on the tide height).
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.
