Meeting time is in the morning (between 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.) and we are back after 5-6 hours (between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.), depending on the tide. We have traditional dhows on which you can cruise gently along the coast of Zanzibar as well as a wooden speed boat that will get you to Mnemba in (almost) a heartbeat.
