Zanzibar local fishing

Zanzibar local fishing


Come here for the main interesting thing on the island, which is fishing in a modern fishing vessel with the latest reels and rods and a fighting chair as well! We offer you the exclusive opportunity to sail out to the sea with a Zanzibari fisherman guide and show you what the ‘fishing for a living concept is really all about.

Setting sail from one of East Africa’s oldest breezes, the horizon is dotted with Local Boat ( dhow), local fisher boats with outriggers, and heading out to sea with full fun. We will equip you with simple fishing gear, with what locals are even catching kingfish, yellow fin tuna, barracuda and grouper. A real adventure!

The half-day or full-day trip includes the boat ride, fishing guide, local fishing gear, fruits and soft drinks. As Local fishing in Zanzibar is a half-day tour so it begins promptly toward the beginning of the day, from 6:00 am or 7:00 am. As a local event, we start by setting the sail from one of the villages around the Island; we typically pick the closest village near our client’s hotels.
