After the unique experience of swimming with dolphins you can also do snorkeling for a while before we head back to shore for lunch.

Prison Island

Prison Island, also known as the Changuu Island, lies about 30 minutes by boat from Zanzibar. The island was once used by an Arab slave trader to contain the more troublesome slaves he had bought from the African mainland to prevent their escape. In 1893 a prison was built but it ended up being used as a quarantine center instead of a prison. The old prison still remains, providing shelter for some giant tortoises that can only be found on this island. After the tour there is a possibility to go snorkling.
