I took a day trip from Dubai. We rode a traditional Dhow boat up to a fjord. We docked int he fjord and swam from the boat, as well as taking a smaller craft to the beach on shore. It was an amazing experience.

Just a few hours outside the United Arab Emirates in the Norther part of the Arabian Peninsula in Oman. There are only a couple of good place so far to stay over night or two. It is a very pretty landscape in this region, make sure to get out on the water, too. Oman's Northern region is completely a alcohol... More

We made our Fjords tour with dolphin-tours on their traditionally decorated Omani dhow.The dhow anchored at the famous Telegraph Island , witch was a station along the telegraph cable that linked London to Mumbai, India in 1864. On the way you can watch a lot of dolphins, follow your dhow.

Full day tour of the fjords was the best experience in Khasab. It's relaxing, very culturally enriching, and the local food is very good. You can jump off the dhow (local boat) and swim in the Straight of Hormus... just be careful, and listen to the guide - there are sea urchins, which I had a bad experience stepping on.

We had a great day on the Dhow. The fjords are not far from Kassab and worth the trip. There appear to be a great variety of cruises. Ours was an excursion from our cruise and was first class but we saw Dhows that were much more basic but all nice.

Fantastic. It was the colour - such a sureal blue for the water and sky; the land colour was amazing - all shades of yellow, brown, grey etc. The well run trip was so friendly - opportunity to snorkel twice. The meal was very tasty. We saw a lot of local daily life from the boat.

Me and my partner booked through khasab tours because of a recommendation from our hotel and were not disappointed. We were picked up from our hotel door at 8am and had our visas into Oman paid and sorted by our friendly English speaking driver. (Who also gave us a mini tour throughout the drive) We then got on to a... More

The fjords were beautiful. Dolphins followed us during our boat tour, which was amazing. The mountains in the area breathtaking. I strongly recommend this trip!
