A dhow is the traditional one-masted wooden sailing boat with lateen sails used for long distance trade and travel in the Indian Ocean region. Its graceful form is an icon of the East African coast.
Cruising the small islands around Zanzibar in a dhow for a day or a few hours is a memorable experience. Day cruises usually include a stop at a sandbank or outer island for lunch and swimming; evening cruises include light refreshments. The sunsets viewed from the dhow are evocative and timeless.
