About this trip

These boats used to trade cargo along Kenya's coast onto the Arab states. They have been refurbished as floating restaurants retaining the traditional aspects. They're now moored at the Mombasa Tamarind jetty. Nawalkilkher sails daily except Sunday, day and evening.


Traditionally used for trade on the Indian Ocean, the Arab dhow has been a long-standing presence on the East African coastal waters, and now you can enjoy an evening of sailing, dining and romantically dancing along the coastline aboard one of these historic sailing vessels. Built in 1977, the Nawalilkher, an authentic Swahili dhow, is the largest of its type on the Mombasa coast, measuring more than 75 feet long.

You are picked up at your hotel in the evening at a time confirmed at the time of booking and transferred to the Jetty north coast facing the Island of Mombasa,


Your evening cruise begins at the Tamarind Pier, where you board this magnificent wooden boat, and you feel as if you are stepping back in time. A kind waiter in traditional garb greets you warmly and escorts you to a private table where you sip on a house cocktail made with vodka, lime, honey, sugar and crushed ice, or if you prefer, you may also order your favorite non-alcoholic beverage or the cocktail without the alcohol.


As the dhow leaves the pier at around sunset, the setting could not be more delightful. The dhow sails around Tudor Creek where you enjoy breathtaking views of Old Town and Fort Jesus before arriving at a sheltered bay where the feast begins with an initiation of a live band playing! A four-course meal of mouth-watering edible delights is served, such as grilled lobster, fish, steak and much more!


When your belly is full, the waiter brings you a delicious cup of Arabica coffee or tea, or you may also request your favorite cocktail and then dance with your partner or relax while the dhow sails back to the pier. Awaiting there will be your transfer representative who will drive you back to your overnight beach hotel or residence in within Mombasa north or south.
