We board at the hotel and then set sail towards Prison Island, to see the remains of the prison built to condemn Zanzibari citizens to isolation and watch the giant tortoises shuffle through the trees, with the patience that old age brings. From there we will do some snorkeling with a guide and teacher to see the stunning array of coloured corals and tropical fish of the islands. Then hop back onboard and let us sail you away to a sand bank where brilliant birdlife exists. For the more active discover more underwater life around the sandbank and listen to stories from our crew about sailing the seven seas. We will slowly sail back to Stone Town after soaking up the sun and return back to the Serena Inn by 03:30pm, relaxed and fall more in love with Zanzibar than you thought imaginable! « less

The silence of the morning sea makes the perfect accompaniment to a beautiful sunrise cruise. Sail to the sand banks or Prison island to do early morning snorkeling in the breath taking ocean. We mention about snorkeling for an hour and you’ll make your way back just before the Zanzibar heat sets in for the delightful breakfast at Serena Inn. « less
