Stop At: Prison Island - Changuu Private Island, Off the Coast From Stone Town Shangani, Stone Town, Zanzibar City 3395 Tanzania
The island was formerly owned by an Arab and saw use for the confinement of refractory slaves but no prisoners were ever housed here instead the island became a quarantine station for yellow fever epidemics. It was bought by General Lloyd Mathews and the jail (goal) which still stands was built in 1893 and hence the name “PRISON ISLAND”. In 1919 the British governor of Seychelles sent a gift in form of four Aldabra giant tortoises to Zanzibar. Presently this species is considered vulnerable and has been placed on the IUCN Red List. There is a dedicated foundation on the island, which looks after the tortoises' welfare. This tour includes a visit to the historic Prison Island with its giant land tortoise. While on the island you will be able to observe and feed the tortoises.

Info on Snorkeling Site:
Bawe Reef (North & South)
On the North side and is a continuous coral wall teeming with life. Cuttle-fish, moray eels and seahorses hide between the many blue sponges, while rainbow runners and longfin batfish cruise by in the blue. Blue spotted stingrays and torpedo rays litter the sandy bottom.
On the South side, a long shallow reef stretches the whole side of the island, ideal for snorkellers and beginner divers. Deeper big coral bommies, which are home to some massive Titan trigger fish, interchange with sandy patches on which huge barrel sponges grow. Stingrays, king fish and thornback box fish can all be found here but the stars of the show are definitely the turtles who live here. Both Green and Hawksbill turtles can regularly be seen here.
