Overview

Al Marsa Dhows have the privilege of entering the breathtaking world of the northern Hajjar mountain range Ru’us al Jibal with its awesome rugged ‘Fjord-like’ coastline known as the eastern Musandam Peninsula. It is here, surrounded by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Oman, that one of the widest biodiversities of marine species can be found anywhere in the world.
