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

Wife wanted to go straight back out to sea and watch the Dolphins again so that probably sums up whether you may want to take this trip. Magical that so many Dolphins around and you can get very close to them that well worth the money for the trip and experience. About 15 Boats out there so busy. Happened to... More

Did the Dolphin and Snorkelling tour with my 20-something daughter. Fabulous! Started with a short ride along the coast to where the dolphins were. Nice views of Muscat and the surrounding mountains. There were a number of other operators in the area where the dolphins were breaching and at first I was afraid that the speed boats were circling the... More

A great way to see the Muscat shore line and amazing forts built a long time ago! Another perspective on the buildings from the sea..... Only 2 hours and a comfortable way to sightsee! Picked up and dropped back to the hotel - that was a bonus....

We had a wonderful dolphin watching and snorkelling tour with Sidab. They were well organized, very warm and friendly. They even gave very good advice for other activities in Muscat. Great service and good price for value. Transfer from/to hotel included, drinks and snacks. The boat was beautiful. I would highly recommend it.

I had the pleasure of dealing with Sidab Sea Tours on 2 occasions recently and both times we were dealt with in a professional and friendly manner. We made bookings for 2 tours from the Crowne Plaza; the first for the sunset dhow cruise and the second for an early morning dolphin watching trip. We were picked up on Sunday... More

We went to this trip by the end of March with friends and we had two babies on board, the trip was smooth, maybe we were lucky with the weather...We saw hundreds of dolphins, they did not come very close, but it was very exciting to see them out in the wild. Did not care too much about snorkelling after... More
