DAY 2: MNEMBA ISLAND- DOLPHIN TOUR
After breakfast we will start heading up north of the Island to Mnemba. From 8:30hrs we will
take a boat and go for Dolphin tour. When we find the Dolphins, you can decide to jump and
swim with them or just stay in the boat and watch them do the belly flops but, the more fun is
when you get closer enough to touch and swim with them.
At 11:15hrs we arrive at the Oval reef measuring several miles in diameter. The boat will drop us
off at the area near the Island which is famous for its sea bed. The depth of the water is the same
in all the reef area (6-16ft/2-4m). You will find yourself above a reef of varying quality (some
areas are wonderfully preserved, while others seem damaged by the area's high visitors’
number). Fishing is prohibited here therefore the density of marine life here is higher than many
other places in Zanzibar. You will come across shoals of dozens of Moorish idols, snappers,
clownfish in their anemones and a host of other species. On the sea bed, look out for blue
starfish, red-knobbed starfish or the fearsome crown-of-thorns starfish, a poisonous, coral-eating
Green turtles can occasionally be seen at this spot, since they go to the island's beaches to lay
their eggs at certain times of year. At 13:00hrs is lunch served by the beach. You should consider
bringing a piece of clothing to put by the under-neath to which you can sit on and eat as you
enjoy the view of the ocean and beach itself at Mnemba. From 14:00hrs is relaxing and playing
beach games at the Island of Mnemba. If you want to go for more snorkeling as well it is Okay.
At 17:00hrs we start heading back to your hotel.
