We took an island trip with Dolphin Dhows and while the boat, the guide, the lunch and the snorkeling were all fine, the experience was somewhat marred by the rather unpleasant manager and his disrespectful attitude. We would probably use a different company next time.

Tour to Bazaruto island was very good but be aware They have a little motor size compare to others tour so going is a little bit slower but funny. They were nice and professional.

We took a speed boat to Bazaruto and Benguerra Islands, did snorkeling in the coral reef, two miles from the island, and had a delicious lunch in Bazaruto. It was definitively worth. During the whole day, Mito took care of us. He was extremely professional,...More

We went with Dolphin Safari to Bazaruto and 2 mile reef and had a good time however the company charges far too much for the trip, which actually only lasts from 9-3. Three stars because it was fine and the food was good but overall...More
