Sailing Experiences from Safari Blue Zanzibar

Our sailing experiences are more than just boat tours. We’ve been in the business of amazing days out on the waters around Zanzibar since 1996. There is nothing standard or ordinary about Zanzibar or the azure blue waters of the Menai Conservation area where we tour.

For those who want an all inclusive day on the water on a traditional Dhow and a seafood feast for lunch, our most popular (and most copied) product the Safari Blue Experience is the perfect day out.

For more of a treat…

For those who want something more bespoke, more high-end, more away from the crowd, we have private charters on a traditional Dhows. On these you’ll get something tailored for you and you won’t have to share it with strangers. Just perfect for those special treats, getting away from it all, private parties, family celebrations, romantic get-aways, proposals or bucket list experiences.


The waters and islands around Zanzibar are amazing, we do our best to make your Safari Blue experiences magical.


We take an environmentally friendly approach by minimizing our footprint, reducing waste, recycling where we can, composting food waste, harvesting rain water and using solar energy. We cook with gas where possible, we never use plastic bags, plastic plates or disposable cups and handle all our rubbish responsibly.


We are open.

We did remain closed during the first months of the pandemic and during that time our staff were furloughed and retrained in new Covid-safe operating procedures. As Zanzibar starts to get back to normal, we continue to take our customer safety seriously. To read more about the measures we are taking, please visit our COVID-19 page.

In addition to our new procedures, we’ve also created a new ‘Bubble Boat‘ tour for those who want to experience our renowned Safari Blue tour but in their own ‘social bubble’.
