A sunset cruise is a beautiful option for couples, families and friends to sit back and relax with a drink in hand and not a care in the world. For those of us who have been to Africa before, you will understand when we say that there is nothing better than an African sunset, but what if we said that a Mafian sunset is even better? After a busy day of adventuring or a lazy day of snoozing, jump on board your private, traditional dhow for a first class view of a Mafian sunset. Your traditional Swahili dhow will be waiting on the shore ready to depart at 17:30. Be sure to order your beverages of choice from the Bar before departing.

The Captain will slowly motor out into the channel, orient the dhow and hoist the sail up. As the sail catches the warm, gusts of wind, you will begin your journey, gently rocking as the trade winds lead you through Mafia’s aquamarine waters. Once the Captain has found an idyllic spot to settle, he will lower the sail and drop the anchor. At this point we encourage you too refresh your drink, raise a glass and cheers to another beautiful moment. The sky will fill with striking hues of red, pink, orange and yellow before all too soon, the sun will gently slip below the horizon, prompting us to return home.
