This was truly a day to remember. We started off watching humpback whales cavort in the water around our boat, then landed on a desert island where the crew gave us a delicious lunch and finally we sailed back to Ilha with the sun setting over the Indian Ocean. Everyone was extremely friendly as well as skilled at their jobs.... More

I took the whales trio with them, that includes some snorkelling as well. I was unlucky with the weather so not able to snorkelling but saw whales very near the boat and all the Ilha Blue staff were really into following them and giving us the best experience. It was like it was first time for them to see whales... More

My family went on a whale watching dhow ride. It was amazing to see the whales. They also stopped to serve lunch on one of the islands that has a whole canopy set up. The trip was lovely and fun.

I love Ilha de Mozambique with all its history. One of the best ways to learn about it is to go on a gentle cycle tour with Ilha Blue around the Island, visiting all the historic places. The bikes are old Royal Mail delivery bikes which make the trip more unique. Ilha Blue organise other trips such a day trip... More
