Prison Island Tour

Prison Island Tour

$40 per person

Private Tour to Prison Island from Stone Town

You will have an opportunity to explore the rich culture and history of Zanzibar with a visit to Prison Island by boat. See the large tortoises that inhabit the Island, and enjoy the opportunity to snorkel off the coast. You will visit Prison Island on a private 3-hour tour, and discover the rich history and beautiful natural surroundings of this location. Meet your guide in Zanzibar, or select the option including hotel pickup, then enjoy the ride to the island on a traditional dhow. Learn how this small island gained its name and explore the place that is now home to more than 50 tortoises, some over 100 years old.

You will also have another experience of feeding the tortoises and take up-close pictures with them, as you keep a lookout for the peacocks and antelope that also live there. After discovering the island and its history, take the opportunity to snorkel in the clear waters off the coast amongst tropical fish and colourful coral. At the end of your tour, you will return to Stone town, where you’ll be dropped off in the city centre, or at your hotel. Hotel pick-up and drop off from Stone Town hotels is free, however, transfers from beach hotels, Zanzibar Port and Airport can be booked at small additional cost.
