Want to go on a breath-taking sunset cruise? This tour offers amazing views of the island’s coast paired with the glory of sunset.

You will sail on a traditional ‘dhow’ or a “ngalawa,” which is a typical local boat with outriggers. Once out in the open sea, our crew will set sail. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the peacefulness of the ocean, with the only sound the ripple of water on the side of the dhow.

Our sunset cruise departs from Stone Town in the late afternoon and cruises along the coast before entering the open sea. As the dhow sails, our crew will serve sodas, drinking water, and snacks while you enjoy another spectacular Zanzibar sunset.
This mesmerizing experience takes your breath away with the wonder of the golden sun setting in the horizon, releasing shades of pink, purple, blue, and orange. The light radiates across the sky leaving a silver-lining.

As the sun leaves the sea for the night, you’ll see the infinite clear sky with glowing stars and experience the feeling of timelessness.

Upon your return, you’ll be taken back to your hotel. We recommend wearing warmer clothes, such as a sweater, in case it gets breezy and chilly.

This is an unforgettable and romantic experience which you don’t want to miss!
