Tanga-Pemba-Zanzibar-Dar es Salaam

Hey all,

do you think it is possible to travel from Tanga to Pemba Island, then Zanzibar and finally Dar es Salaam?

Are there ferries from Pemba to Zanzibar?

And can you give me any information about ferries in general?

I might spend more in time and less in budget, so no local flights for me!

Any prompt response will be highly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
