I took 2 days to choose the company to take to the islands, and couldn't make better choice than these guys. Gito and is staff are just amaze. They have experience patience on snorkeling. On our way some dolphins came next to our boat and spend some minutes swimming next to us. The food is simply excellent, and the fish... More

If you want to visit any of the Islands go with Gito at Sailfish Dhow Safaris! He offers the exact same service as all the other operators but at a fraction of the price. Other operators charge 60 USD pp for the trip to Bazaruto. What a joke! Gito has fair prices, great for Backpackers! Speedboat, park fees, snorkel gear,... More

after visiting Vilanculos for 3 months I can say that one of the best things I have done was taking a trip to MAGARUQUE ISLAND with this company. I took 2 activities with Peterson and Jito - the owners of the company and these were unforgettable days. Magaruque Island is an amazing quiet place - feels like a deserted island... More

There are a couple of dhow safari companies in Vilanculos but I found dealing with sailfish company the best value for money and the most honest and fun people to travel to Bazaruto with. After they picked us up in the morning from our hotel we arrived at the beach, even though it was a bit windy the boat guys... More
