For those who want to catch a glimpse of the marine life but prefer not to scuba dive, there is always the option of snorkeling. We organize daily snorkeling trips by boat to the nearby sheltered lagoon where small reef fish live a peaceful life between
the many corals.
* Boat Rental
Rising Sun has its own traditional Zanzibar sailing dhow which can be rented out if you are keen on learning how to sail one of these historic boats. We also have our speedboat on which we organize trips to the nearby mangrove forest. Our small boat "Tortellina" can be rented out with a skipper for the day.
* Deep Sea Fishing
For those who prefer to "catch" rather than "watch" we can organize deep-sea fishing. You will be picked up by "Shetani" a six and half meter fishing boat, with one 115 HP engine. The boat is covered and equipped with four rods. It is important to remember that the boat is not very high-tech but is standard for Zanzibar conditions. The crew of the boat is very experienced fishermen of these waters and their expert knowledge is essential. The most common fish you can find are Barracuda, Tuna Fish, Kingfish and if you are really lucky you may even catch a sailfish or marlin. For the fisherman that got lucky, the Chef will prepare and cook your catch for you for dinner.
