Evening Tamarind Dhow – The Magical Experience

Board the Tamarind dhow for East Africa’s ultimate eating experience. As soon as you step off the grandplank, you are met by traditionally-dressed waiter who shows you to your table and serves you with a “Dawa” – the house cocktail made from vodka, lime,sugar and crushed ice.

As the dhow slips gently away from the jetty, the resident band starts to play and you quickly fall under the spell of the magical Tamarind atmosphere.

After a cruise round Tudor Creek with fine views of Mombasa’s Old Town and Fort Jesus, your dhow moors in a sheltered bay at the head of the creek. Here, the fine aroma of grilled lobster and steak starts to fill the air as the chefs pull out the charcoal grills and prepare a gourment four – course meal. With the attentive service to match the cuisine, your meal draws to a close while the waiters serve coffee from a traditional Arab brass coffee service. By now the band is in full swing, playing a variety of popular rythms which soon have the majority of guests dancing on the main deck. After the romantic dinner you are transferred back your hotel.

Deep sea fishing is fun. Anyone can catch fish and enjoy this magnificent sport. Kenya offers some of the best Deep Sea Fishing with a large variety of fish close to the shore. A day spent fishing is an adventure in itself. All boats are well maintained and manned by very experienced crew. Crews are well versed at taking out newcomers to fishing and will enjoy showing you how it all works.

Game fishing in this area is excellent and many of the large fish have been caught in these waters. Good catches of Tuna and Wahoo are made in September and October.
