Very nice fjords, little like in Norway, but in Indian ocean. The nice swiming places. The possibility of fishing from boat was offered. Some 6 barracudas was hokked out from water and prepared for our group meal. The taste of barracuda was fantastic.

There is not much to do in the port of Khasab aside from the dhow cruises into the Musandam. We went into town and walked around a bit. Did not realize there was a small fort as it was too far of a walk from the center of town on a hot sunny day. We signed up for a half... More

Everything was beautiful and magnificent. Definitely worth a trip if you're a tourist in Dubai. If you're up for snorkeling, take the half day boat trip. And for those who wants to catch a view of the playful dolphins, make sure you reach there in the morning.

Following day we took a boat to make a cruise around the fjords and did some snorkeling . I really recumbent to take the boat, stuff is nice and they... More

Excellent sceneries in the mist.....usually we see dry mountains everywhere but when on the Dhow cruise, the view changes ! Some of the mountains have nearly horizontal erosions like some artist carved them...the work of nature ! Also the dolphins swim right beside the boats and u can be forgiven for thinking they are putting up a show !

When in Dubai, all is flat and sandy. Go an hour or so north and the land changes dramatically. Mountains abruptly jut out of the earth. Smugglers ply the waters. Dolphins race along side your boat. There is beautiful snorkeling. It's like a whole different planet. The dhows which will take you there will vary in comfort and amenities. Never... More

Stunning scenery in an unspoilt natural environment. The sea teems with butterfly fish, groupers, angel fish and wild dolphins. January seems a good time to watch the dolphins as they had young dolphins in large family groups. They enjoy racing the Dhow boats so there are plenty of photo opportunities as they race a couple of metres alongside the boat.... More

Lovely access by boat. Make sure to spot dolphins and pack swim wear for some paddling. Early outings advised to beat the crowds...
