We made a dhow cruise in the fjords which was very nice. Relaxing and quiet. So glad we didn't have a 'party boat' like the one who passed us! We spotted dolphins who came swimming by our boat. Very, very, nice!

This place is a great weekend getaway from Dubai. The Fjords are amazing, the waters pristine, plenty of dolphins to see. When you are here, go ahead and take a mountain safari to Jabal harim , and camp out at the beach. Use a tour operator and you will not miss any of the attractions this quaint fishing town has...

We went on this boat trip in October, weather was hot and the sea was beautiful - nice for a swim! We saw loads of dolphins they swam right up to the boat for ages, was so nice to see them in their natural habitat. We ate, swam, slept and tanned - brilliant day I would definitely go again.

The Fjords were wonderful to view from a Dhow on clear blue-green waters. The layers of rock soar on all sides displaying the eons in epic style. Mountains that rose a thousand meters and tumbled deep into the water. Travel can be arranged through several tour operators out of Khasab, Oman. Our favorite was Dolphin Khasab Tours. Tours of the... More

This was truly an surprise, I must say! We stayed for a few days in Ras al Khaimah and saw this excursion online a few days in advance. I did contact them but I must say that the dialogue wasn't perfect. We didn't get the confirmation until the day befora departure. Though the excursion itself was just amazing! The mountains...

We went on a full day trip during our stay in Ras al Khaimah. We made reservations directly with the tour company, after finding their homepage online. Everything worked out great - we were shuttled by a mini bus from our RAK hotel to a nearby petrol station where the tour bus picked us up. The staff helped us filling... More

We already did an afternoon cruise last May but thought it was already too warm so went again last week end for a morning cruise this time. We used the same company as last time Khasab Travel & Tours and whereas in May we went for a private cruise for which we paid 50 OR for the two of us,... More

We took a tour on a dhow, they took us through the fjords, I did not know what to expect but it was breathtaking, the mountains were truly beautiful. We saw humpback dolphins and had an opportunity to swim in the water which was warm and refreshing, I would definitely recommend it!
