Snorkeling / Swimming
Dolphin Watching


Kizimkazi Zanzibar Dolphin Tour offers you the experience of a lifetime, a chance to swim with dolphins in their natural habitat. The seashore of the fishing village Kizimkazi is the home of several pods of humpback and bottlenose dolphins. The dolphins are officially protected by the 420 km2 Menai Bay Conservation Area, which was set up in 1997 to stop the rapid depletion of fish stocks. 

With our Snorkelling gear we depart from the shores of Kizimkazi fishing village in search of dolphins. The boat will take us out into the clear turquoise blue Indian Ocean where the odds of meetings dolphins are about 80%.

We encourage our skippers not to chase the dolphins and we advise visitors to enter the water away from the dolphins with as little disturbance as possible, staying close to the boat, avoiding sudden movement and allowing the dolphins to come to you. On busy days with many tourists, this however is not possible. After the exhilarating experience of swimming with the dolphins, you can also do snorkelling for a while before we will head back to shore. The trip takes about 4 hours from early in the morning.

Dolphins are amicable, sweet and playful. They like to have people around them and are good in socializing. Being able to see them up close, possibly even touch them gently and look into their beautiful eyes is simply an amazing experience, and one which you will be able to cherish forever as probably this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity. This Zanzibar dolphin tour is perfect for a family with kids, couples, as well as for lovers of sea creatures. It is a unique and memorable experience that you will be happy to recall with friends and family.
