We spend 2 days cruise on a dhow in Musandam fjords. The 2 people staff was exceptionally nice, the food was fresh and tasty all the time, the boat was very clean.

We saw lots of dolphins racing with the boat, lots of fishes.

Sleeping on the boat in the fresh air was the real break from our Parisian life : sleeping at down and waking up when the sun rises made our day.

We booked online and the driver met as at the airport and first dropped us off at the airport at no extra cost. The Dhow was in very good condition and the lunch was very tasty traditional Arabic food. Towels were supplied for the scuba diving. The highlight was actually the dolphin viewing where the dolphins actually "Surfed" in the wake of the Dhow. Can recommend this to everyone. Excellent Excellent.

We used Khourshem tours to come from Dubai for a Dhow and beach camping trip for 20 people. The trip included return transfers to Dubai, an all day Dhow cruise with dolphin watching and overnight camping on the beach.

GOOD BITS
All email liaison before we went was speedy and well informed
The driver was on time, the minibus clean and he was very helpful at the border (which can be a bit daunting if you've never been before)
The dhow cruise was well organised, a nice lunch was provided with soft drinks and we saw dolphins and had the chance to snorkel. The staff were polite and very helpful the entire time
Campsite set up was excellent, bedding clean and quality tents. Dinner is basic but very tasty. Again staff and service were flawless.

BAD BITS
Honestly from the operation side, I couldn't fault it.

TOP TIP
The water in Oman around the camp site is home to luminescent plankton all year round. Wait until late and the lights are turned off and swim in the water. It's like swimming in glitter and tremendously beautiful. (Just don't put your feet down as there were spiky urchins at night on the floor)

Note
Whilst we were in the sea the entire time, just before we left a person in the group was stung by a jelly. I saw the jelly swim away and there was only one of them and very small but it was a bad sting. That said we only saw one the entire time we were there so I wouldn't worry too much, just be vigilant.

We did not book the boat cruise as we came in via the fiords. Our driver was waiting for us at the cruise terminal.
We proceeded to drive up to the look out to get a magnificent view of the fiords. Due to flooding we did not go down the other side to the village ; but returned to do a tour into the wadi to watch the river flooding. A trip of a life time watching cars all coming out to enjoy the rains. The road flooded so we then returned to have a tour of Khasab. Walked the fort which had lots of displays. Ps. Persons in the Dhow got very wet. Ha Ha
