Chumbe Island is a unique, private, marine protected area. The island, which covers 16 hectares of unique coral rag forest, is a 45-minute boat ride from Stone Town.
Here you will find over 200 species of corals as well as 400 species of fish. Turtles and dolphins are regular visitors to the shallow coral reef.
Lunch is a mouthwatering journey through Swahili contemporary cooking and after this you will be able to relax before your return boat trip.
As the marine protected area is funded by overnight visitor fees, access to the island is carefully managed. Day trips can only be organized 48 hours in advance, once the total number of expected guests on the island is known.
Day trip rates include all transfers, lunch, non-alcoholic drinks, snorkeling guide and equipment as well as guided walks through the forest and intertidal area.
