Wasini Island Full-Day Dhow Sailing Tour from Mombasa

Your full-day tour starts with hotel pickup for the transfer to the water, where you'll board an Arabian-style dhow. All equipment is provided on board, including cushions, towels, masks, snorkels, fins, and diving gear (for those who wish to scuba dive, which is available at an additional fee for qualified and non-qualified divers).Your captain and crew welcome you with a fresh fruit cocktail, and then you'll head out to protected waters, where your guide takes you on a snorkeling tour of the variety of fish and coral. If needed, assistance can be given with the use of life rings and/or life jackets. If you don't want to snorkel or only want to snorkel for a short time, there is space on the show to relax or hop on the accompanying dinghy for a glass-bottomed view of the water without getting wet. Keep your eyes open for dolphins, too. Chilled sodas and mineral water are available throughout the tour (does not include alcoholic drinks), and you'll visit a private restaurant on Wasini Island for lunch, featuring choices of seafood, non-seafood, and vegetarian dishes served with traditional coconut rice, chappatis (a type of flatbread), and spicy Swahili sauce. Your meal is followed by a tropical fruit platter, Arabic coffee, and traditional Simsim (sweets). Spend the afternoon at leisure on the island; you can relax around the natural lagoon, visit the island community project run by the Wasini ladies group, or explore the mangroves. You'll return to your hotel in the evening to end your day trip. Please note: Snorkeling and diving may be dependent on tides.
