Experience Mombasa from the water, sighting iconic buildings while learning about the history and culture. Sail on a handmade wooden dhow through the Mombasa Channel, enjoying sunset while snacking on cassava crisps and madafu. Learn and gain insights from the local boat captains.
A unique way to view Mombasa and learn about the fascinating town. A great way to bond as a group and have a fab time doing so. Sit back, relax and take in the moment.
This trip is available any time of the year. Would recommend evening sails to experience the spectacular sunset though.
T4P will discuss the best place for you to embark the dhow dependent on your location. Depending on the purpose of the dhow ride; learning, group bonding, celebration etc. T4P and Mombasa Dhow will plan the ideal trip for you!
On arrival the crew will welcome you onto the beautiful authentic dhow. Car parking is available at pick up spot. Aboard the dhow, kick your shoes off and relax!!
You’ll start sailing towards Fort Jesus, the crew will point out iconic areas on route. Take a few deep breaths, taking in the calm surroundings and salty air. Explore the mangroves if the tide is right.
Head over to the prime sunset viewing spot and watch the sky change colours as you float on water. Choose to jump into the water or stay dry on board. As the street lights switch on and you see Mombasa by night, head back to the drop off spot while you take in all the beauty.
Yes, it sure is – only the crew and your group will be on board.
We can make the timings work for you, but generally we suggest 4-7pm, the best sunset time.
10-12 adults can comfortably fit.
Of course, the dhow provides snacks and coconut water but you’re more than welcome to bring your own too.
We had such a memorable time on the Mombasa dhow. Took the dhow in the last night of the trip and it was the absolute best. Very much recommended
A fantastic way to celebrate a special occasion, thank you T4P for organising this unique trip for my partners birthday – it was truly special.
A completely different perspective to see Mombasa from the water in a laid back, relaxing way. Crew were also great. Would recommend to anyone!
Well organised dhow trip and a great experience! We enjoyed an empowering chat and some yummy snacks.
