Duration: 6 hours.
The drive from town to Kizimkazi, a small village to the southern point of the island, takes one hour. The surface of the Kizimkazi channel is broken by the skimming arcs of wild bottle-nosed dolphins.
Here you are taken by an outboard engine boat into the sea to see the dolphins, and if lucky you will be able to swim quite close with them, as they are very friendly and playful.
Snorkeling is also part of this tour (snorkeling equipment can be hired at the site). Kizimkazi is also the site of a 12th Century Mosque, the earliest evidence of Islam in East Africa, the return trip includes a visit to this Mosque which still contains the famous Kufic scripts in its walls.
- The dolphins at Kizimkazi are wild but there is an 85% chance of seeing these mammals.
- Do not forget to take your towels, shorts and swim wear when you take this tour.
- Lunch is not included on this tour but can be obtained at the site.
