      Excellent trip
      We enjoyed to see the giant tortoises and the dolphins on the way were super. Food, weather, crew all was very good. Thank you.

    A full day at sea. We went to see the giant tortoise. We got to feed and pet them. Our tour guide was not too clued up on the history of Prison Island though. I was sea sick so I didn’t really enjoy the snorkeling this time around. Most people did, however, there was hardly any fish in sight. The Sandback was the highlight of the trip! Beautiful way to end the day. The fruit served on the day was nice and juicy. I, however, didn’t have any food due to the sea sickness. The journey was a little rough due to the waves.

    Dear mphoentlepr, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you felt unwell. The conditions on the day of your cruise were a bit windy with waves, something that can happen in January unfortunately. There is a medicine called Stugeron which you may want to try upon your next sea experience. It prevents sea sickness without sideeffects. Also, do not forget to have a good breakfast (without eggs and fruits) as it is a wrong believe to go with empty stomach. Regarding the guide, we take up your point and follow up. We thank you so much for your constructive comments and remain with Karibu Aquana Zanzibar

    Thank you to the team on Aquana, we had a good time. We enjoyed being on a bigger boat than the smaller wooden or plastic boats, we had plenty of space and it was cool to have the top deck/2nd floor to see the islands from above. We were lucky to be only one other couple and ourselves, and it felt like a private boat tour.
    Our favorite part was the snorkeling around Bawe island. Didn’t love prisoner island as much as it was pretty packed, but the tortoises are impressive, and we got to see mini deers as well as peacocks too. The sand bank was also nice, even though the weather turned on us. But it got the other tourists to leave, and we were quite alone for a few moments, which we enjoyed.
    The Aquana staff made sure we were taken care of at every moment, I would definitely recommend to do this tour with them!

    We started the trip around 9 o‘clock. Already a few minutes after leaving the marina we saw dolphins. :-) The food was very nice, the Crew very helpful and polite. It was a very nice and enjoyable day and we can only recommend this trip.

    We have spend a wonderfull day on M.V. AQUANA. First we were picked up at Kendwa by a transport which was organised from Aquana after we had requested one. The journey from Kendwa to the Verde Marina took us about 55minutes. When we arrived we received a warm welcome from Omar and he took us to the boat. The entry was comfortable as the boat is docked, so easy in and out. After a few minutes the boat was ready to leave and we headed towards the three island. It was a pleasent day, we could get out of the boat for snorkelling and swimming and there was some food and drinks served. After the trip we docked again at the Verde Marina and headed back towards our Hotel in Kendwa. Again a big thank you for this wonderfull day (especially to Omar who was very kind and didn‘t miss any chance to keep us by good mood). We can only recommend the tour with Aquana team!

    Together with my wife we made the 3- island excursion, what a fantastic day. The weather was perfect and the service was very good. We visited prison island, went then for snorkelling and also got lunch (which was very delicious containing samoosas). We‘ll come again , thank you.

    My friend took me along to the trip. It was very well organised which started with the comfortable embarkation in the posh marina. The boat Aquana is very nice with lot of space to walk around. The boat even has a bathroom and a sundeck. I liked the giant tortoises and the colorful peacocks. Also the swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear blue waters is amazing. I hope to be back soon. Cheers and thanks to the friendly crew

    Our family organised the tour together for us. The sea was calm, we saw nice dolphins and we did very good giggling. The crew prepared a nice lunch. Thank you to the very friendly crew. We will come again

    My partner and I went on this boat tour, taxi found the place easily and the security guard showed us to the boat. There was a spacious upper deck, with sun loungers. We set sail and had ample time at each of the destinations. The trip seemed quite well thought through.

    One of the crew members showed us round the tortoises at Prison Island. We then went snorkelling which I wasn’t keen on but my partner loved (I’m just not a strong swimmer). We then had lunch which was delicious and went on to the sandbank.

    All in all a long (9am - 6pm) trip which was well worth it. All the crew were friendly and accommodating.
