We thoroughly enjoyed this boat trip, seeing dolphins and scenery, and snorkelling. It was worth taking the whole day - it was lovely coming back as the sun was going down. Very relaxing. Also a good lunch.

Great place for diving, as this place has not(yet) been ripped apart by human stupidity. A lot of different fish (big ones, too) including a lot of rays. Only a few sharks, as mankind has killed most of them. On a full week of diving, we saw two (2) sharks. Ten years ago, they had sharks on every dive. Go... More

No visit to the UAE would be complete without a trip into the Fjords of Mussandam at Khasab!!! For a very reasonable price hop onto a local Dhow and experience the magic that is the fjords. Dolphins following the Dhows coming right up next to the boats are only the start of the trip. Snorkeling at Telegraph Island immerses you... More

Khasab in Oman, is a lovely place to visit in cooler months, say November to March. We stayed in Khasab Hotel and took a dhow cruise, dolphins were sighted. Its truly dubbed Norway of the Middle East. The mountain (jabel) safari in a 4 wheel drive was a gr8 experience. It is amazing.....!! Atana Hotel too is well placed facing... More

When you get on board head for the cushions below the awning to keep the sun off, though the crew will be very attentive throughout the voyage and keep you supplied with cold bottles of water and soft drinks. We headed out to Telegraph Island where the curious could climb ashore but the whole trip was eventful with opportunities to... More

Nobody would expect to have Fjords in Oman. Reality, there are. They remind of the sounds in NZ or the ones in Chile. Dolphins along the way, deserted islands and remote villages. A place to go from Dubai for sure.

My partner and myself decided to do this as a day trip and i personally think was perfect. We left Dubai (where we live) at 10 clock and got to Khasab in the Omani enclave of Musandam after an easy drive and stops on way around 1.30. Spent an hour checking what little there was in the town and visited... More

We had the experience of visiting Oman Fjords by taking this tour from Arabian Desert Safari Tours Dubai.The drive is not very much scenic but as we entered Fujairah,the deep blue clean sea delighted our sight. On arrival at Oman UAE border there's a precise but necessary checking.Soon we went to harbour where many Traditionally decorated Dhow Cruise ships were... More
