Kayak: The Fortaleza

Cruise ship visit – Three Fortalezas Kayak Tour

As a seasoned cruise passenger I take a great deal of trouble looking for alternatives to Cruise ship shore excursions when making port calls. There are so many variables involved when making arrangements in advance, the logistics often make it unviable. It was therefore with great delight, when I searched the web for activities on Mozambique Island, that I came across Ilha Blue Island Safaris. They offered several activities which most importantly can be completed in a few hours including walking, cycling & kayaking

Peter & Gail, who run Ilha Blue, were acutely aware of the timing problems that passengers might face when leaving a ship by tender from the anchorage to the island. They were understandably flexible in our arrival time & gave easy to follow directions from the landing stage to their office

The activity we chose was the 3 Fortalezas Loop, which turned out to be a fantastic day. Leisurely kayaking around the beautiful island of Mozambique, snorkelling off the reef & having a picnic (provided) at Fortaleza de Sao Lourenco

Peter provided us with a room to get changed & leave our valuables for the duration of the tour

My wife & I had a fantastic day, the flexibility of Peter & Gail made the arrangements stress free & they couldn’t do enough for us. It was value for money & an experience which will never be forgotten

Good luck to Ilha Blue for the future
