Camping on Cobras Island

Camping on Cobras Island

A friend and I took the dhow trip out to Cobras Island and really enjoyed it. Our own little desert island for a day. The tiny beach where we camped was lovely with amazing rock formations. Kayaking around the lagoon was surreal, it felt totally cut off from the outside world among the mangroves and […]

Ilha das Cobras Trip

Ilha das Cobras Trip

It was amazing the tour organised by Ilha Blue staff! All very well organised: transportation to island, food, accommodation in tents and, above all, the passion of Ilha Blue staff to nature and Mozambique Island. Note 10! Thanks Ilha Blue for enabling me to meet that beautiful place! Conrado C – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil […]

Friendly, relaxed people with some great activities

Friendly, relaxed people with some great activities

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 […]

Exquisite tour of Ilha das Cobras

Exquisite tour of Ilha das Cobras

This trip is the best thing I’ve done in Mocambique to date. It is truly a unique experience, and for us, the delightful surprises just kept coming, one after another. First a true sailing dhow trip (no motors around here!) with an approach to the island that could be successfully executed only with the high […]

Excellent adventures

Excellent adventures

Gail and Pete are excellent at what they do. We went kayaking around the island and also on the island safari. Both were absolutely brilliant. I cannot recommend IIha Blue enough. If you are going to Mozambique Island then you simply must visit IIha Blue and do some of their activities. It’s a great way […]

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 […]

An Ilha das Cobras experience

An Ilha das Cobras experience

Having seen a report on the trip out to Ilha das Cobras, we decided to give it a try, not quite knowing what to expect. Well, the experience was unlike anything we had done before. From meeting Gail and Pete the day before, to arriving back safely the day after, we were entranced with the […]

Yippee! whales whales whales

Yippee! whales whales whales

Humpback whales have arrived in big numbers. Mothers and calves are leaping about all over the place. Ilha Blue is the only operator doing whale-watching trips and we are going out 2 or 3 times a week. We go by Arabic sailing dhow so as not disturb the whales as mothers teach young ones to […]

Fantastic tour with excellent service from the first to the last moment!

Fantastic tour with excellent service from the first to the last moment!

A fantastic trip and visit to remember fondly. With a great company, the boat trip was smooth and unique. A unique environment on the island too, where we were treated as five star, and the visit to the lake made me speechless. Very highly recommended to visit and experience. Many thanks to those who organised […]

The lost oasis!

The lost oasis!

I have been living in Mozambique for a year and a half and little did I know that, there was so much still too see. Well thanks to a very fun, active and extremely friendly couple, Gail and Peter I got to experience an unexpected adventure. We went on a trip to “Ilha das cobras” […]

An amazing experience and great people

An amazing experience and great people

Well, I feel a little unoriginal giving Ilha Blue a 5-star review, since it seems everyone else has the same sentiment. But it’s five stars well deserved. I stayed on Mozambique for 10 days at the end of August, and one of the best finds on the island was the folks at Ilha Blue. Gail […]

Ilha das Cobras overnight trip with Ilha Blue

Ilha das Cobras overnight trip with Ilha Blue

This trip with Ilha Blue is an amazing experience – you get to spend the night on an uninhabited island (Ilha das Cobras or Ilha da Sena) just off the coast of Ilha de Moçambique. There is an incredibly gorgeous lagoon that you can explore with the kayaks right in the middle of the island […]

Great fun kayaking in Ilha das Cobras

Great fun kayaking in Ilha das Cobras

It was great fun for slightly more than 24 hours. The kayaking on the lagoons was laid back, and that on the open sea through the high waves was very exciting. The weather was good. The tour leaders were friendly. And the food was really good – almost worth the price of the trip by […]

Magical Ilha das Cobras – moonlit majesty

Magical Ilha das Cobras – moonlit majesty

I was lucky enough to embark on the overnight trip to Ilha das Cobras on my recent trip to Mozambique which I would have to say was a major highlight of my entire trip! We set out in perfect weather, sailing along the historical shoreline of Ilha de Mozambique, past the beautiful Fortaleza de Sᾶo […]

Best way to discover paradise

Best way to discover paradise

My partner and I stayed in Ilha for about a week and did three of Ilha Blue’s fabulous tours. As well as being lots of fun, they were all highly educational, perfectly organised and gave us a real chance to get to know our local guides. The best thing you can do on Ilha and […]

Ilha das Cobras

Ilha das Cobras

I recently went on a trip out to Ilha das Cobras just off Mozambique Island. I had a brilliant time. The organisers were professional and fun, the local captain and guides were very experienced and friendly. The trip was great as we were able to go to a place that is still truly remote and […]
