A Dhow is a one or two-masted Arab sailing vessel, common still today in the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.
The ancient art of traditional dhow travel has been practiced for centuries. Fathers passing on the craft of skippering dhows to their sons through the generations. It is important for guests and agents to understand the culture surrounding dhow travel.
It is a relaxed, simple and unhurried affair and you will be in the company of many other traditional dhows out on the sea, usually always within distant sight of an island or mainland coast, in case you need to retreat during sudden bad Mozambique weather.
