Virtually any hotel or restaurant in Ilha de Moçambique displays brochures from Ilha Blue (well designed brochures and very informative, by the way!); I found one at Villa Sands and decided to give a call on a lazy, warm afternoon. Pete was so kind, invited my partner and I to drop by Ilha Blue’s office to get all the information we wanted and we immediately opted for the sunset dhow sail. We were very lucky, because the huge, wonderful dhow was all for the two of us – although a whole crew was keeping it going and Pete suggested to come with us as to take care of things, including drinks (yes, drinks, because you will enjoy your aperitivo on a sail, wooden boat overlooking the sunset…). We accepted joyfully and the whole sail – going around Ilha, jumping in the warm water before the Fortress, chatting, relaxing and sipping a beer – was incredibly pleasant. Pete and his partner Gail, whom we had the chance to briefly meet just before saying goodbye, are caring yet discrete, besides being passionate professionals with strong attention to the people and the places they interact with. Thank you, guys!
