Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

As you drive to the historical small fishing village of Shimoni at the South Coast, you will have the opportunity to see rural villages, sugar cane plantations, tall palm trees and lush greenery.
The Slave Caves: On arrival, a local guide will lead you through the Shimoni caves where slaves were “stored” during the old slave trading days before shipment to the Zanzibar slave market.
After the visit to the caves, you’ll head to the Shimoni piers and board a traditional Swahili Dhow for a cruise to the Marine Park. Soft drinks, water, wine, beer and snacks on board as you sail.
As you cruise through the Indian Ocean, there is an approximately 90% chance to spot Dolphins. You then snorkel and marvel at the rich marine life where corals, exotic fish and sea plants are protected. You are provided with masks and snorkels and are accompanied by a certified and experienced guide. Assistance is also provided to first timers. Back on board, you can refresh yourself with fruits and soft drinks.

This was a trip of a lifetime! We got picked up from on time and the ride there was quiet with nothing but the unending beauty of the long palm trees and a shrub or bush here and there. After we got into the boat and left the docking area, we immediately saw the first couple of
