This wonderful excursion is suitable for anyone, from those who wish to completely relax to those who want adventure and excitement. There are two sandbanks located approximately one kilometre offshore Stone Town. The turquoise water of the warm ocean is ultra clear. During low tide, either sandbank makes a perfect snorkelling and picnic location or for simply laying in the sand.
We board the dhow and then set sail towards Bawe Island; here we will do some snorkeling with our guide to see the stunning array of colored corals and tropical fish of the islands. Then hop back on-board and let us sail you away to the sand bank.
A seemingly uninhabited and quiet bank in the ocean suddenly comes to life with millions of birds flying overhead and ghost crabs scurrying across the golden sands. Our crew will cook for you a delicious lunch with grilled fish, local lobster, rice and tropical fruits. After lunch relax on the sandbank listening to the bird life around you and the hush of waves lapping against the shore.
We will slowly sail back to Stone Town after soaking up the sun and return back to the shore by 03:30pm.
