What a coastline!

Be sure to take a cruise along the fjords of Oman. Incredible vistas await you. The snorkeling is good (don't compare it to the Caribbean) and the coral growths are interesting.

Beautiful landscape, you can see some dolphins around if you are lucky, We did a one day excursion and loved it, ideal for snorkeling and we saw lots of very colorful fish. good for swimming as well.

We drove down from Sharjah and enjoyed the magnificent drive once we entered Musandam. On one side there are craggy rock faces and the sea on the other side. It's a very unique scenery and we enjoyed the drive. We pulled over at a point and requested some local fishermen to take us on a cruise around the fjords. The... More

Must do. Amazing dolphin watching experience. If you are not a swim lover, i think half day tour is enough.

We booked a day trip with Khasab tours and it was great. We went snorkelling (their gear is not the best and my flippers broke within 30 seconds) which was nice although the second spot was a bit strange and there were not so many fish to see. We saw about 6 dolphins which swam alongside us for about 20... More

We booked a two night, three day tour with Khasab Travel & Tour in May 2016 for part of our honeymoon. It was amazing! They picked us up from out hotel in Dubai, got us across the border, dealt with all the paperwork, and dropped us off at our hotel in Khasab. A few hours later they picked us up... More

If you visit Musandam you must take a dhow trip through the fjords. The scenery is stunning and a gentle trip on the water is always a great way to spend either a half or full day. Most trips offer lunch (full day) or just cold drinks (half day), plus snorkelling and swimming stops. And the added bonus of seeing... More
