Despite a very short-term booking (less than 17 hours beforehand), everything went great. Picked up from the cruise terminal, short city tour. Then on the dhow, the boat driver was great. Tried very hard to entertain us, to attract dolphins (we saw it very close) and did not look at the clock. Explained a lot to us. Highly Recommended . Despite exceeding the booked time frame, no additional costs and returned on time to the ship. Very hospitable.

Hello everyone, it was a great tour. The local people put a lot of effort into it. The hospitality with fresh fruit and drinks was excellent, of course no alcohol, but water and juices. Everyone was very keen that we could see dolphins, which we actually did by attracting the boaters. I can recommend the tour to everyone

After a short bus ride we went to a dhow. Drinks, tea and fresh fruit were provided. There is also a toilet. We were able to observe 10 dolphins and our captain managed to swim with us several times. Great opportunity for unique photos and a great landscape. There were only 8 of us on a ship for over 25 people :) The snorkel / swimming area was great in the blue-turquoise water :) The staff was very friendly! Definitely a great trip!
