The boat tour to the lagoon was fantastic. Snorkeling was nice. The lunch made by the crew of grilled tuna, coconut rice, and other goodies was delicious and the setting under the balboa tree was picturesque. The visit to the Swahili village was interesting in offering another perspective of life on the island. The crew was helpful in getting people... More

Hi Mark thanks for your great review. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have water on the dhow trip. We always send a cooler with plenty of cold filtered water. Is it possible you were on the trip where the water spilled right at the beginning and the guys had to buy some later when they got a chance?... More

We had a fantastic day trip to one of the island nearby and all was perfectly orchestrated. The founders Gail and Pete, have a genuine interest and dedication to the island and its people. I highly recommend their activities.

I'm not a big fan of boats, or organized fun for that matter. But when the group I was with on a recent trip to Ilha wanted to go for a boat outing I thought ok, it'll be fine. But it was actually fantastic. Ilha Blue is run by a wonderful couple who are masters at matching boat tours with... More

Ilha Blue is an event company run by a wonderful couple named Pete and Gail. They are savvy and knowledgeable about all things Ilha and a few minutes chat with them will result in the perfect outing being arranged.

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

We met up for the dhow cruise at 8.30 am and got a briefing on the what to expect, the plan was to go out hopefully in the search of... More
