Sailing Dhow, Lamu Archipelago, Kenya

Dhow Cruising

Local dhows are great for trips around Lamu Island and are run on a rotation system to ensure that all the crews get the opportunity for a little business.

Your hotel will be able to arrange for you to enjoy a sunset dhow trip, or a sail to the Takwa Ruins on Manda Island (about a three hour round trip). It is also possible to arrange for a full day cruise. On this excursion you will have the opportunity to fish and then cook your catch over a charcoal fire on the beach.

Following lunch you can sail to the coral reefs for some snorkeling before returning to your hotel.
