What awaits you
Isle of Prisoners … and huge turtles! By boat from Zanzibar we will get to the protected island of Canggu (Prison Island) - one of the few places in the world where you can watch the local Seychelles giant turtles Aldabra. Strong shells, like boulders, pillar-like powerful legs: you will examine the gigantic reptiles, photograph them, stroke them and even be able to feed them. I will talk about the habits and characteristics of turtles, many of which are about 200 years old, and then we will explore another part of the island, where an abandoned prison is located. This place hides many secrets: for example, during the height of epidemics, the prison was used as an isolation ward, so Canggu is sometimes called the Quarantine Island
Sands, waves and corals In addition to amazing turtles and prison ruins, Canggu boasts wonderful white sand beaches, coral reefs and interesting underwater life. You will have time to swim in the turquoise coves of the island and even in the open ocean.
- The excursion starts from the pier in the Stone Town, so if you are not staying here, you will need a transfer. I will be happy to arrange a taxi or you can use the transport services at your hotel. The boat ride to and from the island takes 30 minutes.
- An additional entrance ticket is paid - $ 5 per person
- Depending on the weather, rolling is possible during the crossing: if you are sensitive to seasickness, it is better to take motion sickness pills with you. It also helps to bring a hat, sunscreen and swimwear.
- The tour for you will be led by me or one of the guides of our team
The excursion starts at the Livingston restaurant. You will find out the exact meeting point immediately after booking.
