We had the best time!!! Captain Fahad and Daymaniat Shells really care about the health of the ocean. The boat was clean, spacious and comfortable!!! The water was a beautiful blue, warm and calm. Saw so many turtles, some beautiful fish and spots of nice coral. Food was tasty and they’re conscious about not using plastic water bottles a asks probed nice cold water reuseable bottles. We highly recommend using Daymaniat Shells, we hope to come back and use them again!!!!

We did a snorkeling tour today with Daymaniat Shells. Captain on our tour was Farat, who did a great job in all aspects.

The boat was extremely clean, the snorkeling equipment was top, there was very good fresh fruit, enough water and very good sandwiches as well as some sweets.

But what deserves special praise is the fact that Farat is very concerned about the environment. So every guest gets a metal bottle as a gift, so you don't have to use plastic bottles. Farat drives extra slowly in the national park, in order to grant the necessary respect for the underwater world respectively not to cause any damage. When we then docked at a beach and wanted to leave again after some time, Farat jumped off the boat again and has taken garbage from the beach. I wish more people had such an understanding for the environment as Farat has.

For me, in any case, highly recommended and should I ever do another snorkeling tour in Oman, then definitely with Daymaniat Shells!

Excellent experience right from the moment I contacted them. Lea is extremely professional and communication was informative and clear.
They are very professional, knowledgeable of the area and most important they have excellent ethic in awareness of the environment. We have had a few private boat trip with Damanyiat Shells and we have never ever been disappointed. Captain Fahad is incredible and shares his knowledge of the sea life for those who are interested and makes us want us to do it again and again. Look no further if you want to snorkel and explore the marine life of the island. They are the very best.

Make sure to book your snorkelling gate away from muscat city with Dymaniat Shells: Fahad has been an amazing captain as he carefully chose the best spot where to snorkel that day considering the sea conditions, took care of explaining to the group where and how to snorkel and most of all is very conscious of not disturbing too much the sea life.
I appreciated all of that plus the fruit and the food quality and the super new/comfortable boat.
Unforgettable experience for us as we besides turtles, Nemos and colourful Dories…we got so lucky to also meet a baby whale shark!

From booking right through to post trip communication, we were so impressed with the professionalism of this company.

Captain Fahd did a fantastic job of providing an exciting day, with safety in mind and thought for the sea creatures at the same time. We were lucky enough to swim alongside whale sharks and turtles and it will certainly be a day my four year old will treasure for a long time.

I cannot recommend this Muscat experience enough.

What an experience, these guys really know how to conduct an awesome day out. We snorkelled with turtles and lots of species of fish whilst surrounded by pristine coral. Fahad is an absolute gent making the trip special with fantastic insights into the marine life, keeping us well fed & hydrated along the way.

I highly recommend Daymaniat Shells when booking for a snorkeling trip while in Muscat. They are simply the best! A great team that really makes you enjoy this experience to the max. From booking until you are safe back to the marina and the snacks that you eat on board too (very tasty too). Captain Fahad is very knowledgeable and very professional. He knows the best spots and also is very committed to safe guard the beautiful ecosystem (disregarded by many others :(
They are also very kid friendly!!

We had a great day on the ocean with capt Fahad and all his underwater friends. He must be the one guy in Oman that knows most about enviroment and happily shares all his knowledge. Our kids loved it,Specially that he is on first name with all the creatures in Daymaniat Islands 😂 Would def book him again! Masalama Fahad!
