What a wonderful trip. Captain Fahad is friendly, knowledgeable and very considerate to all his guests and ensures everyone is happy and enjoying their time. We left at exactly 8am as advised and were fully briefed on safety and what to expect during the trip. We had a wonderful time snorkeling at the Dayminyat islands and saw turtles, amongst many other beautiful fish and corals. We then got word of the location of a huge group of about 30 whale sharks and spent a good hour watching them from boat as well as swimming with them. Experience of a lifetime. We were given fruit, sandwiches (presented in a cardboard box) and a metal bottle as a gift to refill with water onboard and to take home. I did not see one single piece of single-use plastic on this trip. I hope all boat trip companies will follow his lead! Captain Fahad’s passion for the sea and love of all its creatures and respect for them and their well-being as a priority was really impressive. Eco-tourism at it’s finest. Well done Dayminiat Shells. We will be back!

An absolutely amazing trip! Captain Fahad was really friendly and knowledgeable. He has a knack at finding the best spots to stop and find wildlife. Today we saw lots of turtle and black tip reef sharks. The boat was not crowded, like on other trips I have been on, as he limits the number of people to make the experience more enjoyable. Not only that, we were also fed during the whole trip and had our water topped up whenever we needed. Will definitely go again!

After 7 months living in Oman, and having seen as much as we could given COVID, our entire family agree that our day out with Daymaniat Shells was our best experience yet. Lovely comfortable boat, great lunch, and most importantly Captain Fahad whose knowledge of the environment and local marine life gave us the best opportunities to see amazing creatures in their natural habit. The fact that both whale sharks and turtles came to swim with us during our trip was the icing on the cake. We find that many tourism companies claim to be eco-friendly in Oman, but Daymaniat Shells are the real deal. Upon arrival you get a reusable water bottle to use and keep, the lunch didn't use any single-use plastics, and it was obvious that Captain Fahad respected the wildlife and ensures that his guests know how to interact with them without causing harm. We learned so much and had a great time. Highly recommended - we'll be booking again soon.

Our second trip with Daymaniat Shells and it was just as fantastic as the first! Captain Fahad is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and strives to lead in sustainablity tourism. The boat and gear is great, very well maintained and the activities are conducted with a focus on safety. Finally, he knows the area and where the best locations are going to be. Will be using again.

What an incredible experience. Captain Fahad was fantastic. So welcoming and amazing at spotting whale sharks and turtles. I can’t describe how incredible it was to snorkel with these creatures. Fahad very kindly forwarded some great underwater photos he had taken. Comfy boat and tasty lunch. I can’t recommend this trip enough.
