This tour starts from the shore of the Stone Town, where you depart in a Swahili dhow for Prison Island to visit the ruins and giant tortoises.
You will then sail to Pange Island (Sand bank), this nowhere island is covered twice a day by high tide. This astonishing white sandy bank is surrounded by clear crystalline warm water, an ideal place to relax with only the sound of the waves as they lightly crash and disappear at the edges of the bank and a few seabirds that come to catch the tiny ghost crabs that roam the sandbank.

Snorkeling is not to be missed as you will discover the treasures of the coral reef beneath the ocean.

During this trip you will be offered a variety of local fresh fruits, beverages, snacks, lunch buffet of Swahili cuisine, Italian cheese, soft drinks and white wine.
