It was really nice tour with local tour guide, we enjoyed to learn about the history of the island and visit the main sites. The boat tours were relaxing with good and fresh sea food (we had amazing tuna, swordfish and lobsters on the second day), nice beaches on the islands and amazing blue waters.

Pleased that you enjoyed the dhow safari so much. Our guides and cooks take pride in their work and it has to be said that they do have some good material to work with. I hope you can come back again Pete More

We had a lovely sail at sunset along the coast of Ilha. A wonderful way to beat the heat. The swim off the boat was beyond refreshing.

I fully recommend Ilha Blue services!! Ilha de Mozambique has very few reliable options. Ilha Blue makes an statement on its service. Secure, friendly, punctual. Great job.

The boat tour to the lagoon was fantastic. Snorkeling was nice. The lunch made by the crew of grilled tuna, coconut rice, and other goodies was delicious and the setting under the balboa tree was picturesque. The visit to the Swahili village was interesting in offering another perspective of life on the island. The crew was helpful in getting people... More

Hi Mark thanks for your great review. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have water on the dhow trip. We always send a cooler with plenty of cold filtered water. Is it possible you were on the trip where the water spilled right at the beginning and the guys had to buy some later when they got a chance?... More

We had a fantastic day trip to one of the island nearby and all was perfectly orchestrated. The founders Gail and Pete, have a genuine interest and dedication to the island and its people. I highly recommend their activities.

Ilha Blue is an event company run by a wonderful couple named Pete and Gail. They are savvy and knowledgeable about all things Ilha and a few minutes chat with them will result in the perfect outing being arranged.
