SAFARI BLUE - best boat excursion on Zanzibar

If you have two days on Zanzibar one should be spent exploring Stone Town's narrow streets and eating at the night market at Forodhani Gardens. The other one should be spent on Safari Blue. A whole day excursion starting out with Dhow sail looking for dolphins. Your first stop will be a sandbank where they set up shade and dish out snorkeling gear. Guides take you to the most amazing coral heads and even the first time snorkeler will  feel comfortable in the sky blue calm waters. After downing a freshly cut coconut its back on the Dhow for a short sail to an island for a seafood braai (BBQ) and fruit tasting. After lunch a tour is organized to see an amazing fallen Boabab and you get the chance to sail on a traditional catamaran. Last stop is a mangrove lagoon for a last swim and then a beautiful sail back to Zanzibar. Definitely a must for any visitor to Zanzibar. Although your Hotel or Resort might offer this excursion we have found it better to contact them directly an haggle with a taxi driver to take you there.
