Your private guide with a private boat will take you on a half an hour boat ride from Muyuni Beach and bring you to one of the most beautiful places for snorkelling in the whole of Africa, around the Mnemba island. This is (often wrongly referred to as an atoll), a jewel sitting in the sea. Its vast coral reef, measuring several kilometres in diameter, listed as a marine reserve, is the most popular snorkelling spot in Zanzibar.
You will start your snorkelling experience from the boat at the reef itself, a few hundred metres from the island. Namely, the island is private and reserved for the luxurious and wealthy (a 1000 USD per person) hotel's guests. Do follow your guide's instructions, setting foot on the shore or you may be punished with a hefty fine.
While exploring the reef, you have a great chance to meet a dolphin at a very close range, they like the waters of the reef and often swim with divers. If the time is right, you may even see the green turtles heading to lay their eggs at the beach.
After this exceptional snorkelling experience, you'll be taken to the sandbank for a relaxed if the tide allow to do so and delicious seafood lunch that will be served on the muyuni beach.
