          Hi there, We are about to book a stay at the Dream of Zanzibar, however we do have one questions about the activities. We saw that plenty of activities can be done (sea turtle experience, dolphin excursion,scuba diving, etc) however we couldn't find any info as to the average prices of these activities. We simply would like to get an idea of the prices of the main activities. Thank you very much :)
