Beautiful for a day trip to just relax on the island and explore from the shore. Alternatively you can go on a day trip and stay on the boat. (Check this out before booking depending on what you desire).I've been with a few outfits for...More

Al Daymaniyat Islands are just only an hour sail from Muscat. Unbelievably beautiful sea life, like on the Discovery channel. Coral reefs and all shapes and colour of fish: blue and yellow and stripy and silver and small and huge. If you are lucky you...More

Sailed over for a couple days with some friends, and aside from the non-working a/c for the first two days in 40C (100F) weather all was perfect. The water is just amazing, great snorkeling (and apparently diving - so we didn't try), thousands of birds...More
