Marine Adventures in Temperate Waters
World-class PADI diving amongst the fish-fertile reef, historic shipwrecks and abundant lagoons that bejewel the islands might also reveal dolphin, turtle and seasonal pods of whales as they follow the monsoon currents. Windsurfing, kayaking and snorkeling sites abound.
Fishing enthusiasts can follow in Hemingway’s wake in state-of-the-art, “tag and release” big game fishing, using international standard equipment to land prize billfish and tuna, while the fisherman who craves the exotic might try his luck with the local in a ngalawa, a traditional outrigger. Dhows or Jahazis, traditional lateen sailing craft, glide seamlessly powered by the dependable monsoon. Go for a sail… where the land ends, Zanzibar continues, the influence and allure stretching out towards the distant lands from where it was borne.
