The fjords are magnificent, the water is so clear and you can see a lot of fish while snorkeling. One of the top activities is dolphin watching and the boats do their best to chase them around the fjords. Excellent experience.

The scenery is simply incredible. Some people may have seen similar scenery in Norway. Here you are on a tradional dhow (make sure you do not take one overloaded with occidental tourists, I would say....), the snorkeling is nice and we were so lucky and saw the Delphins :-)

A full day trip on a dhow, including snorkelling and lunch on the boat for 15 euros.. A real bargain!

The Omani coastline is by far the most stunning coastline in the Gulf. To top it off, Omanis, in general, are delightful people. Friendly, generous, and knowledgable, they are a pleasure to deal with. However, one thing they need to better at is safeguarding their natural treasure from unscrupulous tour operators who are literally laying to waster their otherwise pristine coastline.

The bay where we set up camp was completely and utterly filthy. The beach was strewn with empty plastic bottles, cans, styrofoam and other garbage from the party before us.

The food that was provided was extremely poor and hygiene was certainly not corporate policy for the operator, Dolphin Tours.
The next day we set on our tour of the fjords. That turned out to be a disaster. The tour operators apparently can't coordinate among themselves. Every place we sailed to, dolphin bay, telegraph island, etc, was full of the same boats. Subsequently, the water was dirty with human filth, it actually stung.
It is too bad that the tourism board isn't able to regulate tour operators like Dolphin Tours and other like it. A gorgeous country is being literally covered with human filth.

The best place to view fjords by road. Travel further from Khasab towards mountains, after airport take lone left ubntil you see Khawr Najd sign on left, take left past millitary camp/shooting range/helicopter drive up to the top for one of the best scenic view in Oman, drive down to the sea shore. Camping/BBQ is must to do, fresh water available in tanks, will find nobody for company, except fishermen on boats. Need a drive to Khasab for any purchase. its not so far probably less than 30kms though. Road is ok for saloon car, but LL gear is must as track is rough & loose. A help from another car can be rare as this road is rarely travelled. camping at night will be perfect for winter season, I travelled in May @ 45+deg.
