We have several options for exciting boat trips that can be added to any tailor-made holiday to Sao Tome and Principe.

It’s great fun to spot flying fish and dolphin as you move! On Sao Tome, our top recommendations are to take the boat over to the islet of Rolas where you can walk to the equator mark and stay the night at the Pestana Equador. Other favourites are to join a trip to Santana islet for some deep water snorkelling, or take a boat to the beautiful blue lagoon ‘Lagoa Azul’ where you can swim and snorkel in the turquoise waters.

On Principe, boat trips take you along the green, forested coast to breath-taking deserted beaches nestled in tiny bays. On these outings you have the opportunity to jump overboard at the best snorkelling spots and become immersed in the colourful underwater world. Or venture to the ‘Bay of Needles’, so-called because of the phonolite towers that rise from the skyline. These trips give you an unparalleled opportunity to experience nature in its purest state.
