About

Ilha de Mozambique is the hub of the north and Blue Zissou is the company at the centre of everything new in experiential travel to the region

Blue Zissou was established in 2016 by Pete Allsop and Gail Woods, a British Australian couple. The company is based in Stone Town on UNESCO listed Ilha De Mozambique (Ilha), an ideal location from which to share the wonders of the region.  

The company works with tourism industry partners to arrange activities for small groups to as many as 2600 (when cruise ships call), along with specialised team building workshops, incentives and other activities tailored to the needs of corporate clients. We can also arrange activities to add value to conferences and events where our B2B philosophy makes Blue Zissou a valued networking resource.

It’s very important to remember that Blue Zissou is not just another corporate player, our strength is in our passion and commitment, both to providing our clients with the very best experiences and in ensuring that the benefits of tourism pass on to the people who live in the destinations in which we operate. This commitment has earned the company international recognition and awards.
