Recently added to Zanzibar, it should become a main attraction. I went on the coral reef trip, and the views were perfect. The crew is the best, and the job that is done by the booking agents is performed professionally. A great time.

We had a lot of fun on the semi submarine tour to Bawe island. The sea was a little choppy the day we went but it was a very stable ride. All staff were personable and kind. The captain and crew ensured our safety at all times. This is a fun, new and exciting option for the island!

The submarine is such a unique experience, it really made our day in Zanzibar special. You are perfectly taken care of, the team is very accomodating and they put a lot of attention to details. The waiting lounge is beautifully decorated with complimentary drinks, during the cruise they offer snacks and champagne and they document the whole journey with a Go Pro, so that you'll receive pictures as memory. It offers you a complete different view of Stonetown from the sea side.
