  1. How to get to Prison Island – Zanzibar

    • #1. The fee for a boat costs about $30 – $40 USD round-trip with max of 10 passengers.
    • #2. $4 USD island entrance fee
    • #3. $2 USD for snorkel rental (snorkeling is a bit rough and not really worth it)
    • #4. Most people just go for a couple hours, but if you would like to spend the night
    •  

    Tour companies around Stone Town offer the basic same tour to Prison Island including boat fee, entrance fee, and snorkel gear.  If you have a group, you can bargain to get a better rate per person.
    Additionally, most hotels or guest houses in Stone Town will offer package deals for taking a 1/2 day excursion to Prison Island, offering an all inclusive price: do some asking around.

    Though its definitely not the the BEST attraction on the island of Zanzibar, if you have a 1/2 day free in Stone Town, visiting Prison Island Zanzibar is a decent day trip.
