The speed boat ferry departs daily in both directions from Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam at 0700HRS, 9000HRS, 1230HRS, and lastly 1530HRS and a seat costs $50.- USD for economy and $60.- USD for 1st Class booking thropugh us which has a service charge included in the rate. We would highly recommend the 1st Class which bills as VIP Class.
It is recommended to get to the port-harbour a good half an hour before departure.
Takes 2 hours to cross by boat.
Passports and ID is required for everyone in theory arriving and departing from Zanzibar, in generally everyone by law is supposed to have some ID as an after thought….checking into hotels requires ID so please have some ID with you.
Would need full names of all passengers to be able to secure. Tickets are simple E-Tickets upon payment of the seats we shall supply you with our agents details at the port including telephone numbers so you may pick up your tickets even 30 minutes minimum before travel.
The sea can be a bit rough at times!! We suggest you fly from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar, or use the speed boat one way and a flight the other way. Cost per seat by flight $90.- USD one way.
Takes 20 minutes.
