    Dolphin Tour (Trip) + Snorkeling At Mnemba:

    Heading up north seventy minutes maximum for a car drive from the Stone town. It includes transfers, boat, swimming gears, meal and marine conservation fees. We also recommend clients from Stone town leaving at six. As the late departure the less chance to see the dolphins cause the water temperature will become warmer. Not only that but also the boat's increments cause the dolphins' scare so it is not very comfortable for both sides. Great snorkeling is done along the Atoll where you can see beautiful corals and countless species of fishes such as angel ones, zebras, lions, saladins, trumpets etc. It’s a half day trip, seafood platter served with chips and rice plus coconut curry.
