About This Boat

Our Services

We offer fully catered safaris, so you can relax and enjoy the  Magaruque  and Bazaruto Islands while we take care of you.

Safaris include huge meals, drinking water, fruit juice, tea and coffee. Seafood is our specialty and salads accompany all meals.

We can cater for vegetarians and vegans. Alcoholic beverages should be purchased prior departure.

We provide a cooler box and ice on safari.

Snorkelling gear, including mask, snorkel,diving boots and fins are supplied. We do recommend that you bring your own mask and snorkel however as these are often seen as personal items. We can purchase snorkelling equipment that you don’t have a need for after your safari too.

For those who wish to scuba dive, we can liaise with professional dive operators to meet up with you whilst on safari.

Sailaway dhows are seaworthy and crewed by experienced sailors. Each dhow is equipped with life jackets, communication and first-aid kits.

An auxiliary motor ensures that in the event of adverse wind conditions we are still able to reach our destination.

Our Dhow

For more than two thousand years, lateen rigged dhows have been sailing the Indian Ocean, linking economies and people, and creating a cosmopolitan maritime Indian Ocean culture. While trade was the primary rationale, a great variety of people used dhows to cross the oceans: sailors, merchants and settlers. In former days, dhows transported slaves, religious refugees and conquerors.
For centuries, Arab shipwrights crafted boats using sewn construction – sewing the planks together with coconut fibre cord – but this craft has more or less died out, being superseded by nailed construction.
