It is like any of our guided tours, your guide is your companion, and he will establish clear and consistent communication with you before and during the whole trip.

The good thing about this sailing tour is that it is a tailor-made one- designed for your team, and you have a chance to communicate with your captain your expectations. The whole boat tour isn’t about fishing. We will make sure that you just get the most effective experience possible on Zanzibar Island.

Although the private fishing charter seems an appealing experience, the actual fishing experience is what you create of it. The ocean breeze and warm sun are a top-up to this sailing Zanzibar tour experience. It creates a feeling of serenity that may make stay longer on the waters.

What to bring on our Private Fishing Charter- Sailing Zanzibar Cruise Tours?

Most of the items you will need during your sailing Zanzibar cruise are provided onboard except your personal items.  Fishing rods, reels, and tackle supplies are included in the package. If you want to bring your own stuff, you are free to do so. Water and snacks are provided on board. You are advised to wear comfy clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.

Don’t forget to wear light-colored clothing that will reflect the sun, absorb moisture off your body, and provide you with unrestricted mobility. We also recommend boat shoes.

What are the chances of catching a fish on a charter?

This is one of the questions asked when booking a fishing tour.  To put it simply, there is no guarantee you will catch a fish. All your captain will do is try his best to take you to the best spots where you can catch a fish. They don’t have control over nature. Fishing success can also depend on your skills, knowledge, and a bit of luck.  A first-timer may nearly always catch a fish or several species. Some of the spotted species are Striped Marlin, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Short bill Spearfish, and Broadbill Swordfish.
