Full description

Discover the scenic beauty of Musandam and the Gulf of Oman by dhow boat on a full-day tour from Dubai. Soak up the peace and quiet of the Gulf as you enjoy an on-board buffet lunch. Following a pick-up from Dubai in the morning, sit back and relax on the 3-hour transfer to the Gulf of Oman. Located in the northernmost part of Oman, Musandam is a gateway to natural sea treasures. Marvel at the rugged and isolated coastline, surrounded by the peaks of the Hajar Mountains. The mountains rise directly from the sea to form a spectacular fjord-like scenery. Discover hidden caves and bays and pebble beaches as you cruise the turquoise waters. Sunbathe, look for dolphins from the boat, and stop swim and snorkel in translucent waters.

Then, enjoy a buffet lunch aboard the traditional dhow, equipped with comfortable seats, cushions, and carpets.

Everything was very well organized and the people on the boat were very friendly and courteous. However, one should avoid a Saturday as a weekday, since the local guest workers are probably free. Was more of a party boat than real relaxation. However, the organizers cannot do anything about that.

Definitely recommend this if you have spare time and want a break from the fast-paced city. Pick up was on time, van size was good and had AC. Would have been nice to have some information from the driver/guide about where we were driving through as its a long journey and it’s just silence (other than the person/people you’re with). Service, activities and food on the boat was FANTASTIC. Lots of snacks, fruit and drinks throughout the day and buffet lunch was plenty and very delicious. Keep in mind that it gets VERY hot, I unfortunately sat on the ‘sun side’ of the boat for the trip so was in the blazing sunnthe whole day. Passing the Oman border was simple, the driver asks you to exit the van and go up to the counter, very quick process and nothing to be concerned about. NOTE: the boat is quite scary to get onto…. You have to essentially step over/small jump between the boats as they’re lined up next to each other, it was quite scary but staff are there to assist/hold you if needed.
