An amazing, unforgettable day out

An amazing, unforgettable day out

This was truly a day to remember. We started off watching humpback whales cavort in the water around our boat, then landed on a desert island where the crew gave us a delicious lunch and finally we sailed back to Ilha with the sun setting over the Indian Ocean. Everyone was extremely friendly as well […]

Amazing adventure!

Amazing adventure!

We were two 28-years-old girls backpacking the country for two weeks and we had just an awesome day discovering the secret spots of Ilha de Mozambique and its surroundings. We chose the Ocean Safari option, which offered us the chance of seeing whales, discovering the fairy underground world of the region by snorkelling near Goa […]

I highly recommend staying for more than just a few days, which most people tend to do, I was fortunate enough to stay for a month. The adventures I’ve had are mind blowing from little walks where I have found old and beautiful buildings from the area of the Portuguese, to the joy of the […]

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 […]

Amazing tours!

Amazing tours!

I’ve been on the bicicleta tour, whale-watching trip and 3-fortaleza kayaking tour of the island – all absolutely amazing and led with great professionalism by local guides. The bicicleta tour was a great way to explore the island, to see parts of it, such as the interior of the macuti town and the slavery memorial […]

Great experience, great people

Great experience, great people

Such very nice people (both the owners and staff). Great day kayaking one day and sailing/whale watching another. Very knowledgeable about local history, sites, activities, etc. They also helped us arrange ground transportation from Pemba, a town a few hundred kilometers North of Ilha de Mocambique – much lower cost than flying, and much quicker […]

A beautiful day out, sympathetic to local people and a right hoot!

We loved this trip. Pete took us out with his local boat team. We saw humpbacks breaching from a safe distance. Great food and drink on a lunch stop with clear vis snorkelling. Pete is a wonderful person and we chatted and exchanged views – fantastic. If you visit Mozambique island then call in for […]

Peter and Gail know the island and the area around, they know the people and they are willing to do whatever it takes to make sure your activity is top notch!! They even overcome nature. On a whale-watching cruise we happened to be in that short period of the year where the wind shifts from […]

Unwaning enthusiasm and fun!

Unwaning enthusiasm and fun!

The service provided by Ilha Blue was second to none from the very beginning and I’m so glad I stumbled across them whilst researching things to do on the island before leaving. This is a lovely operation, easily accessible from all hotels and hostels on the island, and run by a conscientious couple with a […]

Highly recommend going on the fabulous whale watching trip! Gail and Pete are so friendly and knowledgeable. The picnic lunch was so nicely thought out – a real highlight! Gail even hooked me up with some antibiotic magic powder to cure my scabs from a previous knock. Thanks again! Joel – London View this tour

Marvellous Whale Watching

Marvellous Whale Watching

So many whales spotted that we lost the count! One even almost at our side, (it was a good feeling to be in a sturdy sailing boat that doesn´t agitate the enormous being). After all the whales, a nice swim and wonderful lunch under cooling shade, before sailing back. Overall a very nice experience to be […]

We stayed on Ilha for 6 days, and in this time took a whale watching trip on a dhow, and also did the bicycle tour of the Island. Peter and Gail run a great operation, very sustainable and clearly committed to engaging the local community. They were also a good source of information about the […]
