Full description
Discover the scenic beauty of Musandam and the Gulf of Oman by dhow boat on a full-day tour from Dubai. Soak up the peace and quiet of the Gulf as you enjoy an on-board buffet lunch. Following a pick-up from Dubai in the morning, sit back and relax on the 3-hour transfer to the Gulf of Oman. Located in the northernmost part of Oman, Musandam is a gateway to natural sea treasures. Marvel at the rugged and isolated coastline, surrounded by the peaks of the Hajar Mountains. The mountains rise directly from the sea to form a spectacular fjord-like scenery. Discover hidden caves and bays and pebble beaches as you cruise the turquoise waters. The more sheltered bays provide a safe environment for snorkeling and swimming, where a rich marine life of colorful fish and coral is waiting to be discovered. Look out for turtles and dolphins as you frolic in the water. Then, enjoy a buffet lunch aboard the traditional dhow, equipped with comfortable seats, cushions and carpets

Was a wonderful experience. But, overall a bit disappointing..... The crew of the boat were fantastic. Toilets on the boat are disgusting! Though we might stop for swimming and snorkeling in more than just one place. Travelling all that way to go just 4 miles along the coast on the boat was not what we expected

Despite the high seas and rough waters we had a great day.. We were unable to enter the caves because of the weather but the entire crew went out of their way to show us a wonderful time.. I cannot day enough about the crew on the dhow! Nothing was too much trouble for them. Having some very reasonably priced souvenirs aboard was very thoughtful... What was NOT great was the drive to Port Of Dibba, Sultanate Of Oman... Our driver was surly, never uttered a word about the drive and spent most of the drive on his phone... A little commentary on our drive would have been welcome! After all, he had all kinds of time to have personal conversations. Very unprofessional and the ONLY downer of our day...

Long journey - worth it for memories

From hotel pick up 6am to meeting point approx 1.5 hours. This is usual in dubai traffic. Onto luxury coach but no toilet so go at meeting point. Just about trafficless journey to dubai approx 1.5 hours. Easy border crossing. Dhow is authentic. Bathrooms good. Crew & service excellent. Activities good. Snorkelling reasonable near rocks when anchored. Just 1 issue where saw diesel leak into sea as set off back. Please be careful musandam tours - the coral is vital for sea life to be in abundance and tourists to keep coming.
