My wife and I have been in Dakhla for 5 nights and whilst we have done a lot of great activities, this one was our favorite. The visit to the Dragon Island was incredible; a remote island where you experience nature at its purest with sightings of all kinds of birds. While we were not lucky enough to see dolphins, the trip there was fantastic and we saw, amongst others, pink flamingos. The service is flawless, they picked-us up from the hotel and from there on we got to meet Hicham and Kbiri who both were of great care and offered us great snacks ranging from pringles and non-alcoholic drinks to a tasty carrot cake. A highly recommended experience!

Captain Neil and the crew did a great job of looking after us and explaining things. Saw various birds including flamingos. The hour we had exploring Dragon island was great fun. Good snacks too!

It was a hassle-free trip. Very accommodating people. They even taught us how to sail. and they left us good time to explore the dragon island for ourselves.

Neil and his compagnon are very experienced and will make sure your money is well spent. The island and the bay is a must see. The catamaran makes the whole trip even better. Don 't hesitate and book a tour!!!

We went with a group of friends for four hours on Niel's catamaran. We had a perfect moment ! The staff was very nice and explained us how to "drive" a boat, to put the main sail etc... We stopped for an hour at the dragon's island in the middle of Dakhla laguna, you can climb on the top and have an amazing view all around !
Very nice trip to do in Dakhla ! I recommmend it

We had a fabulous day out on this catamaran. The crew were so kind and helpful. The food was brilliant - a bbq on a boat! Wow amazing along with salads, drinks and cake. We were so fortunate to see a humpback dolphin - wonderful. We spent a short time on an island and had a swim too. An awesome day - we would highly recommend a trip with this company, nothing was too much trouble.

What a WONDERFUL afternoon we had with Neil, our skipper! We sailed to Dragon Island, stopped over there for an hour's stroll around the island, and then sailed back! My daughter Jess was skipper for a while, and loved it! Neil was incredibly gracious and supportive - my daughter has a broken arm, and I've had surgery to my neck recently! The sailing was superb, the carrot cake (provided by Neil's wife Jaqueline) was utterly delicious! On our way back to Dakhla Attitude, Neil took a little detour so that we could take photos of our friend's Kitesurfing! Our trip ended with Neil walking us back to the beach and carrying our bags for us too!! If you're wondering whether you should do this trip - it was simply divine! I highly recommend it!!!

Loved my trip out with Sahara Sailing and would recommend to anyone. Great crew who explain everything to you. Stunning views of the lagoon and the White Dune. Lovely snacks on board and opportunities to walk around the catamaran and sunbathe. I normally suffer from sea sickness and I had no motion sickness at all and could thoroughly enjoy myself. If you're fortunate you will see dolphins too but even at worst, you'll have a brilliant experience and a long-lasting memory.

We had a great time sailing on the lagoon to Dragon Island. The weather was perfect and the view was beautiful. We saw some flamingos and got to explore and hike around the island for an hour or so. The crew was all very nice and the communication beforehand was excellent. We would definitely recommend it for a family! My kids thought it was a lot of fun! Only tip, bring a jacket for the evening sail, it gets chilly and feels great, but better to have a warm jacket!

My husband and I (and two others from our hotel) had the most magical trip with Sahara Sailing. We decided to do the trip to Dragon Island, and all we can say is WOW! For at least 45 minutes we had dolphins following our boat jumping out of the water. The whole crew was kind, welcoming, and fun to talk to, and they really paid attention to every detail to make sure we were comfortable. When we arrived on the boat, there were drinks, snacks, and the most amazing homemade carrot cake waiting for us. The views throughout the whole trip were spectacular, and we arrived at Dragon Island, we had the whole island to ourselves. We were able to hike up the rocks, enjoy the private beach, and see the birds that inhabited the island. This trip is not to be missed. There are a few companies offering boat trips in Dakhla, but nothing comes close to Sahara Sailing when it comes to safety, the small details, and an unforgettable all around experience. I should also note that they picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel.
