We(3 friends) took a snorkeling trip to the sunken wreck by the fort and loved the entire experience. Going by traditional sail boat under full sail just added to fun and memories. The wreck itself didn't disappoint and was interesting for so many reasons (the marine life, nature reclaiming the wreck, the size of the wreck and the shallowness and clarity of the water). Pete's informative chats about every aspect added wonderfully to the experience and we came away not just happy but really feeling we'd learnt something. We'll definitely be back for the whale watching. Ilha Blue Cafe is also a must visit location for their shakes, smoothies, homemade cakes and again the friendly and informative chats with Gail and Pete.

Completely AWESOME!!! The staff took good care of our group, had decent gear, and took us right to the shipwreck. The amount of fish, coral and visibility of the ship wreckage was incredible. We were two family with kids' ages ranging from 9-17.

Amazing experience with Ilha blue. All the staff were amazing... from Fahar in bookings who was really helpful and flexible to Abdul and his crew at sea who were so kind with my kids. They were a bit apprehensive of snorkeling and Abdul made sure to do everything he could so they wouldnt miss out on the experience. The lunch and drinks were amazing and in the shade (provided all by them!). Cannot recommend enough! This is a must when you come to the Ilha.

I enjoyed the visit, specially to the other islands. This snorkeling was also wonderful. I will advice other people to do.

My fiancé and I loved our experience with Ilha Blue for the day trip on the boat to 2 islands including lunch. To be honest what stood out the most was the lovely lunch they prepared right there on the beach. Abassi outdid any other restaurant we ate at on the island! I am not exaggerating! He prepared a lovely coconut rice with Siri sir curry (their local dish), fish fillets (super tender and juicy given they prepare dit over an open fire), magoes for dessert, and an assortment of salads and piri piri sauces! I was comfortable on the trip and felt safe throughout the whole day with the crew. I would only suggest they extended it an hour longer to catch the sunset on the boat as we retained to Ilha de Mocambique.

Definitely repeating this trip, even if its just to have Chef Abassi prepare lunch again!

Thank you Ilha Blue Team!
