During my stay in Oman my girlfriend and I booked 2 trips with Sidab sea tours; their Dowh sunset cruise and their combined dolphin watching and snorkelling trip. Both trips were very good and well put together by professional staff. The sunset cruise gave us the opportunity to see some areas of Muscat you otherwise couldn't, namely some of the... More

I was very pleased with the trip. Well organised and on time. Our hotel booked a trip for us. We were joined by other boats from the other companies and went nearby the fisherman's boat (who probably fed the dolphins). We saw hundreds of the dolphins and chased them as they swam away. After about an hour watching we arrived... More

You can call to book your time and head down to Marina Bandar. It was a long ride out on the boat looking for the Dolphins and we did found them after about an hour out. The boat seats about 15-20 pax. Refreshment , drinks, water, snacks provided. Don't wear any hats as it might fly off. No motion sickness... More

We booked an 8 a.m. Dolphin excursion through our hotel front desk. Sidab sea tours picked us up on time from the hotel. The drive down to the marina was in a clean van and the tour check in was easy. Captain Khalid was quick to get our boat out on the water which was nice as there can be... More

The snorkelling and dolphin tour is really well done by Sidab. They pick you up from your hotel on time, organise everything at the marina and provide snacks and drinks on the boat. The captain was very good and everyone was satisfied with the time spent snorkelling. All equipment was provided including life jackets for the less confident, and everyone... More

Did two tours with them - the snorkelling & dolphins tour and the sunset show cruise. Both were great, esp the snorkeling dolphin one. Excellent staff, really friendly. Def use.

Picked up at 15.00 from our hotel by air conditioned taxi for the short ride to the marina and an interesting trip up and down the Muscat coast. The boat was ok and the skipper knowledgable and fun. Apart from the Palace and the two Portugese forts that guard it, we also saw the Muscat New Naval Cemetery at Shaikh... More

We were collected promptly from out hotel and driven to the marina where we were greeted by a staff member and given clean towels. The boat was small but comfortable and drinks and fruit were provided and plentiful. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, pointing out places of interest as we sped off at speed to look for Dolphins. He... More

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
