We had booked the six-hour option. Advantages: - delicious food - spotted dolphins - discovered fish while snorkeling - met nice people on board - pickup very uncomplicated - toilet on board Disadvantages: - beware of rough seas, sensitive people could get sick with more wind - tour only started after an hour's waiting time on the dhow because another group was still missing - the return journey took longer than planned. We were on board for eight hours. That was a little too much. The four-hour tour is more than enough

If you desire to live the real life of Khasab do this tour. We traveled with 2 chikdren (7 and 9) and they are still dreaming this fantastic experience. Take with you your swimming items and a jacket: dolphins, traditional food (sooooo good) and drinks (omani cafè, juices and water at your disposals), tropical fishes in the sea, mountains, old villages and wind ... an amazing dream !
