We booked dolphin watching and snorkelling as we had been dolphin watching before and loved it. We were amazed yet again by the number of dolphins we were able to see. We even had the treat of dolphins swimming alongside our boat, baby dolphins jumping out of the water and the odd attention seeking dolphin spinning out of the water.... More

What an amazing experience - within minutes of leaving the harbour we were surrounded by a pod of dolphins so large that we didn't know where to look to see them jump! Sidab's two hour tour started at 8am and claim 90-95% success rates. You will have to be very unfortunate to be disappointed. Don't expect ball-balancing tricks or Flipper-esque... More

We went through Sidab sea tours because they are the easiest ones to find and are very helpful land friendly. The cost is very reasonable and for a family of 4 it cost around £120 for 2 hrs of dolphin watching and 1 hr of snorkelling in a secluded bay. We were very lucky and saw at least 100 dolphins...

Great day out, two hours trip, good pictures of the coast and cat island. Friendly staff, only six passengers on the boat, refreshments available and nice atmosphere.

We decided to take a trip out to see the dolphins...intials thoughts that 10am was too late were unfounded as we were able to see a range of dolphins swimming close and a far. We even saw local fisherman with thier local catch...one even came and showed us thier huge fish (thought this could have been staged)....who knows. All in... More

Myself and 4 friends decided to go on the Sidab boat tour whilst in Muscat. Wow! What a great day! We were picked up from our hotel at 9am and driven to the harbour for a 10am boat departure. There were 14 people on the boat so full but spacious. We speeded out to sea and soon found loads of... More

My first trip to Oman and needless to say Muscat was typical of the places I've been in the middle east but stunning aswell. I was recommended before heading out the tour to see the dolphins, I booked this easily with hotel concierge on my arrival at the Radisson Blu in Muscat for the following morning (only having 24 hours...

We've booked tours with Sidab on two occasions. The first time we did a dolphin and snorkeling tour which was quite value for money because of the excellent guide. However, the second time we went we were sorely disappointed. We booked a tour to go deep sea fishing for the first time. The sea however was very choppy, so choppy... More

To be honest I didn't expect to see any dolphins at all! After five disappointing days in Oman (we found it pretty much...average) we decided to take the 2 hour boat trip for the dolphin watch. We've booked the day before and when we arrived at the marina we've found out that the rest of the visitors in Oman had... More
