6 Day Snorkeling and Cycling in Zanzibar

The original Safari Blue tour (make sure you are booking the right thing!) is one of the most popular day trips from Fumba village (and a fair few other locations as well). Though not cheap it offers a full and fascinating day including all transport, snorkelling, food and drink etc. It also offers a far more nature-friendly way of possibly catching sight of some dolphins than the numerous ‘Swimming with Dolphins’ trips offered from Kizimkazi.

DAY 2: SNORKELING IN ZANZIBAR
Snorkeling in Zanzibar is an experience of a lifetime. Unlike many other popular snorkeling destinations around the world it is still possible to find places that have never been explored along the coast. The many varieties of coral provide a home to thousands of colourful and exotic creatures, including blue ribbon tail rays, fire fish and for the “Finding Nemo” fans, clown fish.
