 Access

Take a boat from the Yacth Club and travel toward the south-east side of Bongoyo Island. There, at approximately 200m from the shore there is a reef, and waves break quite consistently. Make sure that you anchor the boat far out enough so that it does not get hit by incoming waves.

 Additional Information

Jump of the boat and paddle in direction of the island, you will see the waves breaking. Always keep an eye open as the current is very strong and tends to drive you toward the North.We surfed here with a decent 1.5m swell and the waves were powerful and long just above the head size, a lot of fun, probably as for size the biggest wave you find around the Dar es Salaam area.

Atmosphere

It is an area in open ocean in front of an island where nobody lives so make sure to take appropriate safety measures as if anything happens there will be hardly any boat to come and rescue you. Best solution would always be to have somebody staying on the boat to check the situation.
