Hope Dhow Crew & Our Story

We are a team of three best friends who grew up together, originally from Lamu island Kenya. where sailing and “beach life” is our way of life. We have all worked in the tourism industry providing sailing tours,fishing tours,snorkeling,sunset cruise and other expeditions like sailing tournaments and fishing competition.
we also have a background of life guarding. Because of our past experiences, in late 2015 we decided to expand our tour sailing business to Zanzibar.

We sailed with Hope Dhow from Lamu to Zanzibar, it took us about four days in total and was a great adventure. We love singing and entertaining on the Dhow, Also are really good cooks 😉 given our swahili background we have learnt to make the best swahili dishes that would change your life!
