Zanzibar Nungwi sunset dhow cruise

Dhow cruising has become very popular in Zanzibar as this cruise out into Nungwi Bay! Yes, Life on the beach, to begin with an imagination cruising through the cool blue Indian Ocean Waters of Zanzibar on board a beautiful Arab style dhow!

After you step onto the local traditional dhow sailing boat, the skilled crew on board take the dhow about 1km away from the shore by means of an engine, once out in the sea, the engine is shut off and during a tense moment the skillful crew sets up the sail, once the sail is in favor of the wind, the guest can sit back, relax and enjoy the peace of the ocean as you hear the ripple of water on the sides of the dhow as it glides swiftly through the water

Enjoying fun and chilling evening, sink back into the dhow’s seating and enjoy the romance of Africa while the sun sets with its beautiful orange and red colors, one of the most beautiful sunsets

Day 1: Dhow sunset cruises

Dhow sunset cruises usually start at 5:00 pm (17h00) from Nungwi beach. We carefully-select a dhow to take you under sail, across the bay and along the beautiful coast off, this is a wonderfully way to raise a glass to the end of another glorious day in the tropics.
Relax onboard with the wind in your hair, with great music tunes on the sound system and an ice-cold whisky or Tropical Cocktail in your hand! Yes! forget about the bad times, you are here for the good time! You cannot beat this!
You will return to shore at 6.30pm (18h30) after the sun has set down already.
note: Routes and services onboard may vary depending on the weather conditions.

I would like to say what a great job Rashaddi on the safari. He was so pleasant as a guide. He was knowledgeable about the area & the animals. He was funny. He took the time to explain the culture with informative data. Naisidu came to the airport to pick us up & dropped us off. He was on time & very pleasant in informing us about Arusha & the culture. We took their business cards because we will definitely come back. Their service was outstanding!!
