We booked two trips: he biking tour and the beach-baobab combo. The former trip was amazing. Perfect way to visit the island. The bikes are comfortable, the pace is relaxing and we learned a lot from our wonderful guide. The visit to the beach was also good but we preferred the bike tour. The beach is very clean although do... More

This was truly a day to remember. We started off watching humpback whales cavort in the water around our boat, then landed on a desert island where the crew gave us a delicious lunch and finally we sailed back to Ilha with the sun setting over the Indian Ocean. Everyone was extremely friendly as well as skilled at their jobs.... More

And it was a privilege to to be the one to introduce these local children to whale watching, one of natures greatest wonders.

I took the whales trio with them, that includes some snorkelling as well. I was unlucky with the weather so not able to snorkelling but saw whales very near the boat and all the Ilha Blue staff were really into following them and giving us the best experience. It was like it was first time for them to see whales... More

My family went on a whale watching dhow ride. It was amazing to see the whales. They also stopped to serve lunch on one of the islands that has a whole canopy set up. The trip was lovely and fun.
