Top excursion We went in December. Dolphins accompanied us for 25 minutes. Fantastic The snorkeling was also very good, didn't expect so many colorful fish. The mountains (fjords) are great too. A successful trip The meeting point was in front of the cruise terminal. 5 minutes from the cruise ship. 5 minute bus ride to the boat. There were 8 of us on a very large boat. Very nice skipper

Very nice boat trip. There were free soft drinks, tea, coffee and fruit on the boat. A simple toilet, a fresh water shower and towels were also available. Dolphins could be observed for a relatively long time. The crew was very nice and helpful. This excursion was an absolute highlight for us!

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.
