Advice is to reach Oman Musandam, and then book the cruise. The regular charges for 1/2 day cruise tour is 15 Omani Royal and 20 OMR for full day (full day comes with Lunch). Watch the dolphins, the shoal of beautiful fishes, enjoy the nature, take a dip for snorkeling or swimming among the fishes. For Mountain Safari, you can... More

I had no idea that Oman was so mountainous. We cruised through the Fjords clear water taking in the amazing scenery. A pleasant and peaceful way to spend a half day.

From the centre of Khasab take the road out towards Dibba and then follow the signs for Al S'al ala where there is supposedly a picnic area (couldn't find it and the road just abruptly came to an end). Follow the signs for Khor Najd and you come to a mountain pass following up the mountain beside the Omani milatary... More

We took a tradition wooden boat which had full cover to prevent sunburn. Drinks were available all through the 6 hour trip both hot and cold. We were served a tradition lunch when we stopped twice for snorkelling and swimming. But the most amazing part was the number of Dolphins we saw and the boats Captain seemed to know exactly... More

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.
