Great adventure!
Feb 2020 • Couples
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!

A day at sea
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

Great Boat Tour
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.

3 Island Excursion fun
Sep 2019 • Friends
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
