Nothing but praise for this place! Be advised, there are many fake Safari Blue tours in Fumba and honestly I almost went with one because it was reasonably cheaper. My wife though told me, no you have to go with the original they offer much more. So against my own will, I negotiated and got the price down a little and paid more to go with the original. Let me tell you, it was completely worth it! First you start off and sail out and can stop at a sand trap in the middle of the water for pictures then you will head to land to see a huge, fallen baobab tree! We opted out of the sand and headed to see the tree! It was an amazing site to see at it was so huge. Then back on the boat to head out snorkeling. Water was a little choppy but it was still really fun to see all the great things underwater! Then we headed to our own private island to eat lunch (this is not included with these other fake ones). All the fake ones were crowding up on the sand trap and we sailed to our own private island that was amazing. The food was great and we ate and relaxed and then had a fruit tasting session of all the Zanzibar fruits. Then we sailed back and was given the option to snorkel one last time but we were wore out so we headed back. I hang this 4 stars because it is quite a bit of money, with that being said, it is well worth it!

Eleanor was very accommodating when I had to change our dates on this trip. We booked the bubble boat and it turns out we were the only guests that day. We spotted dolphins on our way to the snorkeling destination. The place we snorkeled at, the reef was surprisingly colorful and we saw so many fishes. We had a quick stop at a sandbank before lunch time. Being the only guests on that day, we had the opportunity to have lunch at a private island. After the feast of seafood we were offered, we headed to the lagoon for swimming. The lagoon water was almost as warm as a hot spring! The last island we hopped on, we were able to see coconut crabs. Extra bonus that we didn’t expect. Our kids learned about this crab on their kids show and it was pure excitement when they saw them in real life. We sailed back as the wind carried us. It was such a lovely outing! Captain Morgan and the team were also very friendly and caring. Highly recommended!
