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

See Mucat from the shoreline. Very organized, with hotel pickup punctual and lovely people. Well worth the time and money.

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

My lovely wife and I booked a dolphin watch and snorkling tour in their glass bottom boat. For a small extra fee we were collected from our hotel and driven to the marina. I have to say it was one of the cleanest marinas I have ever seen with very little, if any, oil on the water. We were directed... More

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
