A great little tour with a good boat and experienced captain. GO EARLY, 8am for the best chance although there is almost (not quite) a guarantee that you'll see dolphins no matter what the time. Earlier sees the dolphins more active and it is a lot cooler for yourselves. There are cold drinks and some snacks onboard. You can move... More

We went dolphin watching, and it was beyond amazing! The entire trip was very beautiful. We saw tens and tens of Dolphins; we went crazy. We also saw the shores of beautiful Muscat, the rocks and other pretty views. Absolutely a must!

Muscat is very HOT, especially in the summer. It is pretty oppressive to be outside at all, so we were skeptical about taking a two hour dhow cruise, but it turned out to be lovely! We were protected from the sun either upstairs or down. You can even sit in the air conditioned inside. We were lying down on a... More

It is really amazing to start the a day sailing with hundreds or may be thousands of Dolphins playing near the boat. Captain Abdullah was a jentle man. Water ,juice and snacks offered on board. And the trip is a beautiful chance for exploring Muscat coasts. Next time I will add snorkeling to my trip.

I booked this tour through my hotel for 19 OMD and it included transfers to and from my hotel, 2 hour boat tour, and a three course meal. Captain Abdullah was amazing and even helped me take some action photos. Truly we must have seen 100 dolphins (or maybe the same 10, ten times). I highly recommend taking the 8... More

Good Experience, take the 8:00am 2hrs cruise and you are most likely to sight a pod of Dolphin not very far from Muscat coastline
