MARINE LIFE

Join us for a whale watching or snorkeling excursion and
see what lies beneath.

EXPLORE THE AREA

Go for a Marine park excursion or a sunset dhow experience and observe the Mikindani area like never before.

Whale watching excursions

Live your dream during half a day watching the Humpback whale migration.
From August to November, we are lucky to spot numerous humpback whales in the Mikindani bay.

These gentle giants, reaching up to 16 meters in length and 30 metric tons, migrate twice a year covering an average of 25,000 kms per year. After breeding and giving birth all through the summer in tropical waters, the humpback whales and their calves hit the road. During the Spring, they often stop by Mikindani bay and wave at us like old friends. Now is the time to enjoy and savour these precious moments. Then, they continue heading south to the colder waters of Antartica, waters full of krill and small fish which form most of their diet. Once stocked up on food and fat reserves, they are ready for a new cycle of migration.

All our excursions are highly dependant on weather and tides conditions.
Although we are close friends, we cannot guarantee to always spot them on every outing.

you have the courage to lost sight of the shore.

Snorkeling excursions

Depending on your schedule, we arrange snorkel trips with our boat or from the shore.
Under supervision of a PADI professional, you observe the spectacular underwater life and skin dive these untouched reefs.

Our shore snorkelling excursions take you to the best spots accessible from shore. No more than half an hour is needed to reach the beach and enter the warm tropical water. After a short briefing, admire the unbelievable marine fauna and flora and let the sea casts its spell on you.

Our boat snorkelling excursions transport you to the best spots accessible only by boat. After the short briefings, you snorkel and discover two places with incredible marine life and pristine coral gardens in clear water.
Our sites may change according to water conditions and snorkeler abilities.
