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

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
