Wonderful experience

Wonderful experience

We booked two trips: the biking tour and the beach-baobab combo. The former trip was amazing. Perfect way to visit the island. The bikes are comfortable, the pace is relaxing and we learned a lot from our wonderful guide. The visit to the beach was also good but we preferred the bike tour. The beach […]

The best way to see the Island!

I can’t recommend Ilha Blue enough! We went out on their dhow with another couple, and had an absolutely incredible morning sailing out to the coral reefs, snorkelling in the clear blue ocean, and beach-combing on one of the small islands. The team sailing the boat was experienced and knowledgeable, Pete and Gail were an […]

I traveled solo in Ilha de Mocambique. Ilha Blue tours were part of a great experience. Going on a guided tour on bike around the island was a great way to enter inside the historical atmosphere. Seeing a beautiful sunset from the dhow, going to see the whales and having lunch on a beautiful little […]

Chilled out tours on Ihla de Mozambique

I did 2 tours with Ihla Blue – a guided bicycle tour of the island’s historical sights and a dhow trip for some snorkeling with lunch on a small island. All done in an unhurried, relaxed pace and with a genuine desire that the people on the tour are enjoying themselves. Highly recommended. Eoin M […]

They are to be commended for offering visitors unique and thoughtful tours enhanced by well informed and friendly local guides.

Recently went on a fantastic day trip organised by Ilha Blue. Sailed on their lovely dhow to a natural lagoon where we swam and snorkelled. Afterwards we had a lovely lunch prepared for us, which we ate under a couple of enormous baobabs overlooking the sea. An interesting tour of the local village followed and […]

Kayaking and day trip to the beach

Kayaking and day trip to the beach

It was a great experience to do these two day trips with them and their excellent staff. During the kayaking and snorkelling I felt always safe and in good hands. And the day trip was a relaxing alternative to the day before where we did the kayaking. The food was really well made and the […]

As the title says, Peter and Gail are a very friendly, relaxed couple (with a good crew too!) and we thoroughly enjoyed each of the activities we did with Ilha Blue. We had a few weeks on the island and so we had the time to make the most of what was on offer. We […]

The best Ilha experience!

The best Ilha experience!

It wouldn’t have felt like we explored the island properly if we didn’t come across Ilha Blue. They offer unbelievable boat trips to a secluded island, fantastic snorkelling and kayaking options and plenty of original and unique tours to cater for everyone. Don’t leave this island until you speak with Gail! Had a fantastic time!! […]

Me and my sister made a day tour to Cabaceira Pequena and we really enjoyed it. The crew of the boat was really nice and the island as well. They prepare a homemade meal with fresh products. I would definitely recommend it. Jara Azahara View this tour

Authentic tours run by enthusiastic staff

Authentic tours run by enthusiastic staff

I did 3 tours with Ilha Blue. The island bike tour, a day dhow cruise, and an unforgettable overnight trip to Ilha das Cobras. The beautifully restored dhow, named “Edna”, is a wonderful boat locally operated and maintained. Being at the mercy of tides and winds gives you a real feeling of “Africa time” when […]

Beautiful baobab trip

Beautiful baobab trip

We set sail for the Ilha Blue day trip to the baobab tree beach in the fantastic dhows that take you across the beautiful aquamarine sea to the beach, white and empty, like a paradise island. We wandered along the beach, swam and snorkelled in the warm inland water around an old anchor surrounded by […]

Amazing!

We had a beautiful experience by walking through the mangroves, swimming in the close lagoon, and eating a very good fish under a magnificent baobab. We strongly recommend Ilha Blue to have a different and professional tour in Ilha de Moçambique! Thanks guys! Emanuele L View this tour

The best place to start your visit

We landed on Ilha de Mozambique after what we thought were unbeatable experiences in Namibia and Botswana. We were wrong. The island was the perfect complement to the rest of our trip in Africa, and Ilha Blue was the best place to start. The cycle tour was a great way to get oriented on the […]

Another wonderful trip with Ilha Blue. I went on the Baobab trip, what a day. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived and set up under the magnificent Baobab tree, to snorkelling in the gorgeous lagoon, to the late afternoon walk to the well where women and girls were collecting water. Oh, and did […]

Through the 2 tours we took with Ilha Blue, we were able to enter into the lives of the locals on the Ilha de Mozambique. Gito commanded the dhow which brought us to Chacas Beach and a wonderful local restaurant with fresh seafood. The 3 hour ride out was totally relaxing, while the 45 minute […]
