  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.
