DOLPHINS TOUR

DOLPHINS TOUR

Want to experience the amazing, graceful and beautiful wild dolphins? The most popular dolphin spotting location in Zanzibar is in Kizimkazi on the Southern coast, where you can see both bottle-nose and humpback dolphins. Several bottle-nose dolphins stay there all year-round. Kizimkazi is also the site of a 12th century mosque, the earliest evidence of Islam in East Africa. Dolphin tour is best very early in the morning, because in the afternoon as the sun rises sea water tends to become warm, therefore dolphins dive deep down the sea bottom to escape heat. We advise to wear waterproof sandals for boarding the dhows and to bring sunscreen, towel and spare T–shirt for snorkeling. Although dolphin-spotting is a popular activity, sightings aren’t guaranteed 100%, and actually managing to swim with dolphins is a rare occurrence, like with other wild animals. Once spotted, we’ll cruise with the dolphins and get the swimmers ready. If conditions allow, then we’ll place swimmers in the water for the adventure of a lifetime! , Starting in the islands old capital of Kizimkazi where an old walled enclosure and an ancient mosque were built in A.D 1107, you will proceed to a small fishing village where you will be taken by small local boat out into the surrounding waters in search of the dolphins. There is an 85% chance of dolphin sightings and once you have found them you will have the opportunity to go snorkelling and see some of the beautiful sea life around Zanzibar.
