Zanzibar Dolphin Day Tours Kizimkazi Boat Trip Itinerary
0600 Hours: We pick you up from your hotel/ residence and drive you to Kizimkazi Fishing Village. The drive takes about an one hour from to Stone Town to Kizimkazi, located in Zanzibar’s South coast.
Kizimkazi is home to large numbers of bottle-nosed and spinner dolphins, beautiful coral reefs and tropical fish.
0700 Hours: On arrival, we get a short briefing on safety and about the dos and don’ts when interacting with the dolphins. Then, you board a traditional ocean going dhow and set sail on the Indian Ocean in search of dolphins.
Our traditional sailing dhows are between 8 to 10 meters in length and are finished to the very highest standards and have public liability and marine insurance.
The dhows are fitted with outboard engines, marine VHF radios, gas inflatable life jackets, sunshade, boarding ladder, waterproof bags and first aid kit.
The shallow coastal waters around Kizimkazi are a most loved home base for dolphins that come here for the solid food supply, to attendant their calves, socialize and rest. We are lucky enough to see dolphins on at least 85% of our trips.
Dolphin tours are best done early morning hours. As soon as the sun warms up the water, dolphins dive down to the ocean floor to escape warm water. The best time to see dolphins is between 5am Hours to 7am Hours.
You can get as close as 10 to 20 meters away from the dolphins. In the past, some guests have been lucky enough to swim and snorkel with them. Swimming with dolphins is one of those magical ‘must do’ life experiences, and doing it in the azure seas of Zanzibar’s south coast adds to the allure.
However, the dolphins aren’t tame, and can be shy and elusive. Although visitors see dolphins on the majority of outings, there are no guarantees.
1000 Hours: Whether you’re fortunate enough to see dolphins or not, you can enjoy two hours sailing and taking in the sights of the ocean. There’s superb snorkeling in the pristine coral reef and swimming in the clear, warm water of the Indian Ocean.
1200 Hours: You’ll return to the beach for lunch, where you can swim in the shallower waters. Kizimkazi is also the site of a 12th century mosque, the earliest evidence of Islam in East Africa, and is thus worth a visit for both cultural and historical reasons.
