BOARD A TRADITIONAL DHOW AND SET SAIL FOR A ROMANTIC CRUISE

Boarding a traditional Dhow and setting sail for a charming cruise is surely the most romantic way to look for dolphin and whales at the Watamu Marine National Park.
And if you think that the dhow and its crew are completely for your party, no sharing with other guests, it makes the cruise even more enchanting!
After breakfast, around 8:30am our private transfer will take you to the harbour to board a traditional lateen sail dhow that will cruise you the whole day off the Kenya coast and/or inside the Mida Creek.
You’ll spend the time exploring desert beaches, looking for Humpback Whales or chasing Dolphins.
Snorkeling and lazily lying on board will also be part of your day, do not forget the sunscreen.
Lunch will be served on board, and drink and fresh fruit will be available for the whole cruise, that will take you back to the departure harbour after a charming sundowner at sunset cruising the Mida Creek, just in time for a shower before dinner.
