Dolphins are the symbol of freediving, and there isn’t a single freediver on earth who doesn’t dream of freediving with dolphins. This doesnt have to be a dream anymore, as dolphins are abundant around Zanzibar, especially in the south of the island, where there are big pods of dolphins permanently living there. These dolphins are quite frendly and can get very interested and playful towards freedivers, and letting them very close.
We arrange 1 day trips to Kizimkazi, leaving by car early in the morning, reaching Kizimkazi where we put our suits on and jump on the boat for the ride to find one of the pods.
