ABOUT SAFARI BLUE
Since 1996, our aim has always been to provide our customers with a truly memorable experience using the best
Zanzibar has to offer, while making a positive difference to Zanzibar and its people. We are the original Safari Blue operator and the only one fully licensed and registered. Our huge success has sparked a fleet of copycat boats and operators, but they are just that. We are the only genuine Safari Blue; we are professionals with years of experience and we are passionate about our product.

THE SAFARI BLUE CREW
We pride ourselves on a happy crew. Many are former subsistence fishermen from Fumba village and have worked with Safari Blue since the late nineties. Our snorkelling guides are experts at pointing out fish and finding the best viewing spots. Our crew can speak
English, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

OWNER MANAGED
Safari Blue is owned and personally managed by Eleanor Griplas. She believes in creating worthwhile, sustainable employment and training. She doesn’t stop with Safari Blue. Eleanor is well-known and respected throughout Zanzibar. She contributes by supporting local schools and providing student sponsorships, outings for children and patients, infrastructure improvements in Fumba, construc-tion and maintenance of a mosque, and is an active member of the local Rotary Club raising money for local causes.

WHAT TO BRING
Please bring a beach towel from the hotel and wear a swimsuit under your clothes. Suitable beach footwear is suggested as well as sunglasses, wide brim hat, a t-shirt to snorkel in, motion sickness tablets (if you don’t have your sea-legs and lashings of sunscreen.

A SAFARI BLUE DHOW
Sailing dhows have been the means of transporting people and trade for hundreds of years across the Indian Ocean. Safari Blue goes to a lot of trouble to keep their dhows looking beautiful. The dhows are skillfully constructed from African mahogany and finished to the very highest standards of Zanzibari craftsmanship. Safari Blue has 8 dhows and are between 10 to 13 metres in length and accommo-date about 16 guests. All Safari Blue dhows are well-maintained, comfortable and equipped with outboard engines, communication equipment, sunshades, boarding ladders, life jackets, waterproof bags and drinks coolers
