“Wonderful experience not to be missed”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We booked the dhow for sundowners and nibbles on the occasion of my mums special birthday. The team looked after us so well and the setting could not have been more stunning or perfect. I would highly recommend a trip on this Dhow. Our family had a lot of fun and it truly is an incredible experience.

“Great Adventure”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Had a great evening out on Mida Creek on this wonderful dhow. The only way to get a true African coastal sailing experience! We saw the most fantastic sunset and this was topped of by great service and wonderful food all at a very reasonable cost.

“Mangroves of the sea”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I had never seen a mangrove forest, and this is the place i got to see such and had the added privilege of riding on a dhow to move from "island to island" of mangroves. the sands there are pure white. very beautiful for holding a barbeque
