Romantic Sailing Aboard the Tamarind Dhow

Tamarind Dhow cruises

Welcome aboard the Tamarind Dhow for East Africa's ultimate eating experience. As soon as you step off the gangplank, you are met by a traditionally dressed waiter who shows you to your table and serves you with a "Dawa" - the house cocktail made of vodka, lime, honey, sugar and crushed ice.

As the dhow slip gently away from the jetty, the resident band starts to play and you quickly fall under the spell of the magical Tamarind atmosphere. With two sailings a day, you may choose lunch, shaded from the midday sun by a canvas awning, or a romantic candle-lit dinner under a star-filled sky.

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 he charcoal grills and prepare a gourmet four-course meal.

With 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 rhythms which soon have the majority of guests dancing on the main deck.
