    Zanzibar Dreams


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     While walking around the world scottisom made a stop in Zanzibar to take in the sun. With his tour group, he explored the island, rode a wooden catamaran, and enjoyed the beauty of the Indian Ocean. ‘The picture that I submitted was from an all-day excursion that most of our group took on the Indian Ocean,’ Isom said. ‘We used the traditional wooden boat (dhow) to follow dolphins, enjoy world-class snorkeling, swim, and enjoy a relaxing lunch on one of the islands in Menai Bay.’ His image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for November 12, 2013.

    Believe it or not, this picture was taken while I was on the job in Tanzania! As an adventure guide, I recently led a North American tour group on an all-day Indian Ocean safari off the coast of Zanzibar, using a traditional dhow (wooden boat) to spot dolphins, explore sandbanks, snorkel among the coral reefs, and enjoy lunch on a secluded island. The catamaran featured in this photo offered us a chance to harness the power of the wind for an exciting 5 minute jaunt into the turquoise waters of Menai Bay. Rough day at the office!
