        Hi, thanks for your review. When I visit Shela or Lamu town I usually take the dhow (Galaxy) for the day, we go fishing and they cook our lunch on the dhow. Its such a beautiful experience. Have you taken the dhow and do they take you out for the day, fishing and music? I'm trying to figure out if i should stick to my regular dhow or diversify and explore. Thanks.
