In this self organized trip it was very easy to secure a trip with a Dhow by thi!s company. Their driver was well on time and brought us to the boat in Muiscat. A Dhow is spectacular as it hops on the waves; the view on old Muscat and the undergoing sun was to never forget. On top there was... More

The company picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off. Everything went very smoothly from that side of things, the company were excellent. The real problems are the dolphins. After a pleasant boat ride we finally come across a lot of dolphins. I have to say though,they were a bit inattentive to us. They seemed more interested in... More

The only good thing I can tell is, that we saw dolphins at our Dolphin and snorkeling tour and could snorkel. BUT: This has nothing to do with watching the dolphins. More than 10 boats haunted the dolphins, surrounded them, went on and on and this was obviously beseting the dolphins. The area for snorkeling wasn't very nice, lots of... More

Hi, During the touristic peak months in Muscat some days due to more flow on dolphin watching bookings it is happening, more traffic with tour operator boats and private boats. Especially on that day if only single pod of dolphins sighted around Muscat sea. Winter time very rarely one / two days affect visibility poor condition and clearing up with... More

A representative from Sidab transported us from our hotel to the Marina and back later in the evening. (I'm not sure if this is this most economical method, but it certainly was convenient.) He made arrangements after snorkeling for us to linger at the Marina until the sunset tour. By the way, the Marina showers and dining areas were great.... More

We booked to do the dolphin watch and snorkelling trip, but unfortunately on the day we booked, the sea was quite rough and the dolphins had made themselves scarce. Although that was disappointing, we still had a great day out, stopping in a quiet bay for snorkelling, then heading off again to a beautiful quiet inlet where we stopped and... More

This company run 2 trips a day, 8am & 10am, the early one is supposedly a better chance for you to see them. We took the earlier one, a quick boat with a sun cover, with a bow area for photos, seating about 16 in total, we had 9 on ours, with life jackets available as it does get rough.... More
