“Blue Lagoon” conjures dreamy images of tranquil turquoise waters in an idyllic setting. But the Blue Lagoon of Zanzibar is a real place that is a haven for snorkeling.

Your Blue Lagoon snorkeling adventure begins with door-to-door pickup and drop-off. This magnificent snorkeling experience brings you to a lagoon of crystal clear water located in the southeast corner of the island.

Snorkeling at the Blue Lagoon is an adventure, where you can spot a rainbow of tropical fish and extensive coral reefs in calm, sheltered water. This is one of the best spots in Zanzibar for snorkeling.

 

In these waters, you’ll be surrounded by an amazing variety of colorful fish and marine life, such as coral formations, starfish, sea turtles.

The best time for snorkeling is at low tide which offers better underwater visibility and is better for swimming. Some of the fish species you will see include:

 

Parrotfish Lionfish Marbled Grouper Bluefin Trevally
Zebrafish     Triggerfish Goatfish Scorpionfish
Cornet fish  Yellow Boxfish  Squirrelfish Surgeonfish
Blue sea chub Butterflyfish Stonefish Cuttlefish

But wait, visiting the Blue Lagoon is much more than exploring tropical fishes and reefs. You can enjoy a sunset cruise, a beach BBQ, fishing, sighting dolphins, or even a local village tour. 

Bring your swimsuit, sunscreen, towel, and camera. We’ll provide the snorkeling equipment, water, and a light fruit snack. For lunch, add a visit to a local restaurant.

Be ready to have fun on your amazing underwater experience.
