Explore the Daymaniyat Islands, one of Oman’s most famous places to visit. Your itinerary begins with you stopping off at the Daymaniyat Islands Nature Reserve, before you advance onward to Seeb and the Muscat Governorate. From the starting point, travel for 45-50 minutes to Daymaniyat to reach to the islands. Once having arrived, your boat stops for you to enjoy the area's good visibility. This spot is perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and visiting the beach. On top of all that, it is the perfect location to simply relax and unwind. Your guides provide all the snorkeling gear, including life jackets, snacks, fruits, chips, and refreshments on board the boat. At the conclusion of your 4-hour experience, your friendly guide returns you back to your tour starting point.
Discover one of the jewels of Oman, the Dimaniyat Islands, on a boat tour from Muscat. Snorkel in a beautiful, UNESCO-protected nature reserve and admire the abundant sea life. Begin your day with pickup anywhere in Muscat before the Al Seeb area and transfer to the marina for the 70-kilometer (43.5-mile) journey northwest to the Dimaniyat Islands. Onboard, enjoy the scenic views of Muscat and the coastline, as well as unlimited soft drinks and water. Once at the Dimaniyat Islands, explore the nature reserve and stop in two different places for snorkeling. Keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles, corals, and, if you're lucky, sharks, eels, and dolphins. Have the chance to find Nemos (clownfish) and see other different species of colored fish, too.
