The Surf Trips & Surfing Lessons 

Combined Dongwe Doughnut Surf Trip

Our most popular trip is the famous Dongwe Doughnut surf trip. This trip combines three different activities in the beautiful waters right off Dongwe. Depending on the group size already the drive to the surf spot is a real african adventure. With a bit bigger group we rent a private Dalla Dalla, a local bus, that starts in Jambiani and collects all guests along the way. Depending on day and conditions we either start on the beach in Dongwe or Pingwe, a little further north on the southeast coast. Here we jump in a covered fiberglass boat packed with surfboards, snacks and water and start our salty adventure. First stop is in the deep water channels, where you get to experience our unique underwater wing. Equipped with a snorkel mask you get towed behind the boat holding on to the wing. The underwater wing brings you down deeply and in the same speed back up to the surface. Spins and dolphin-like moves are part of the fun and everybody gets the chance to try his or her mermaid skills. After an exciting session with the underwater wing we continue our way to Blue Lagoon, the by far best snorkel lagoon on the Southeast Coast. A lunch stop combined with some snorkeling await you here. Just with the change of tides we then make our way to Dongwe Doughnuts, our favorite surf spot as everybody will find a wave here. The advanced surfers can paddle to the outside section of the reef, where they can find a decent headhigh fun wave. With our beginner surfers and first-timers we stay in the inside section, where we have two spots with perfect beginner waves - Tamarin Rights and Jams. After a good surf and some fun waves we make our way back to the boat and beach. What a great day out in the water. This trip including transfers is about 4 - 5 hours long.
