Day trip from Dar

Hi- is it possible to do a day trip from Dar to ZNZ? If so, what itinerary would you suggest? I would probably take the ferry.... Thanks!!

You probably won't have sufficient time to do much there but to stay in Stone Town. If you take the first ferry at 7:30am it will be 9:30 - 10:00am before getting there. The last ferry comes back at 4:00pm. So you would have that much time, or about 6 hours using the ferry. I think there are later flights.

It is possible to make it.

The ferry leaves Dar at 07h00 and be in Zanzibar at 09h00.

The last ferry leaves at 15h45.

Can do the following combination.

-Stonetown Tour with either Spice Tour,Jozani Forest,Prison Island Trip

-Dolphin Half Day Trip

Thank you! How do I book these trips? Should I just speak with tour companies at the port?

Is better to book with Tour company in advance.

Yes ,can do snorkelling,the best combined set up as per your preference is Stonetown Tour upon arrival and Prison Island Trip(where will get a time to do snorkelling)
