From Khasab: Snorkeling and Jebel Harim Mountain Tour

1. From Khasab: Snorkeling and Jebel Harim Mountain Tour

Start with a 3-hour Dhow cruise to the Khor Sham fjord where you can admire beautiful scenery and colorful blue seas. Drop the anchor near Telegraph Island and enjoy some time for swimming and snorkeling in the ocean. Discover an underwater world full of colorful marine life. If you are lucky, you may even spot some of the dolphins who like to congregate in the fjord.  After you finish the cruise, embark on a 3-hour jeep tour to Jabel Harim, the highest peak of the Musandam Peninsula. Buckle up in a 4x4 jeep and make your way through the mountains, with many scenic stops along the way. Stop at the Bedouin village of Sayh, a picturesque settlement that sprawls along the mountainside. See the ancient petroglyphs of the village, which date back over 3,000 years. Pass a remarkable fossil wall, with specimens such as crabs and shellfish clearly visible. Finally, reach the summit of Jebel Harim located at 1,800 meters above sea level. From the Khawr Najid viewpoint, see the vast Indian Ocean unfolding below you. See Khasab in the distance, and the town of Dibba. Many of the rocks at the summit are also studded with superbly preserved fossils, offering the remarkable sight of ancient submarine creatures including mollusks, fish, clams, and numerous trilobites.

Outstanding trip. Easy, comfortable shuttle bus ride from our doorstep in Dubai to the boat Khasab. Friendly, attentive crew provided plentiful cold drinks, buffet lunch, and fresh fruit and helped my elderly mother so that she could lay down on the floor pillows and swim with everyone else (she uses a wheelchair). Would definitely book this trip again.

The gentleman who picked us up, the dhow captain and his crew, we're all very pleasant, friendly and eager to help, yet remain a comfortable distance so that they don't over-whelme the guests - we had a very relaxing and refreshing trip

The boat tour and jeep tour were well organized. The boat crew and the jeep tour guide did an excellent job. The lunch in the restaurant was also excellent. This combination tour can be recommended without hesitation

No muss and no fuss. Pleasant day on the water. Great crew. Good lunch. Only suggestion would be to have more diet drinks on board other than water.

Nice trip, nice tour guide. He even caught a squid and grilled it for us on the boat!
