Musandam Khasab Full-Day Cruise with Transfers & Lunch
- Pickup available
- Duration: 1 day
Our day started 6:20 for picking up and finished 20:50ish in the internet city Dubai (we were a bit starving on way back) Our guide was helpful with visa and transportation, however on way back, we spent 1.5hr at least on the boarder as there were long queues...The water temperature was ~24degree, quite comfortable for snorkel. However the water was not so transparent, and little to see. We saw ~8 to 10 dolphins during the boat tour. And as groups of other tourists were delayed, we spent ~1hr waiting at the harbor for the boat to departure...considering the money and time, it is nice to hang out there if all has been covered in Dubai, otherwise it feels a bit over spent (time, money and energy) to take the tour.
Nice and well organised trip. I would say it's perfect for chill time and enjoyable ride with Arabian dhow. The views of Musandam peninsula are nice but not breathtaking. It's more about spending a relax day on dhow with delicious food and amazing crew. Overall I liked it. Few tips: on Friday and Saturday you can stuck for an extra hour on Oman boarder because it's weekend and it's more busy. Keep in mind that this trip on the boat lasts 4-5 hours. We stayed in Ajman and for us it took 2 hours by bus one way to reach Oman boarder.And 1 hour to cross it because our trip was on Friday. Keep that in mind if you stay in Dubai. It will take longer to get there.
We had an absolutely amazing time! It's a beautiful day out. Our guide, Mustafa, was a perfect gentleman. From the time we got on the bus, he informed us about what we'll be doing and how the day will progress. The bus was very spacious and air conditioned. We had two opportunities to swim and snorkel. A speed boat took us out to a cave which was really beautiful. The buffet was delicious. The on board staff was also very kind and hospitable. Really recommend this to other people.
Communication was great from start to finish. Great people, ease at the border which was helpful and cost effective. Wish we saw some dolphins. But swimming in the Ocean and jumping from the boat made the day memorable. Thsnk you also for the quick thinking and action of 1 of the guides, when my swimming partner needed aid. Great tour, but not for the snorkeling. Thank you all!!
A bit of a long comfortable charter style bus ride to the Omani coast. For me, that was normal, but for those not used to road trips, be aware of it. Beautiful mountainous scenery. Beautiful peaceful boat ride. Very interesting and lovely sea cave we took a small (fast) boat ride to. Snorkeling and swimming near the cliffs. Delicious lunch. Kind, attentive, and helpful staff.
