What people are saying about Muscat

The crew was super nice, the captain was very nice and showed us a few things. There were soft drinks and small snacks to keep you going. We were about 10 people on the boat and at first we thought: "Oh no, what a mass processing", but it turned out to be really relaxed and so beautiful. We saw so many dolphins swimming right under our boat. The snorkeling stop was also really nice: colorful fish, turtles and corals. A really nice end to our trip. Collection and return transfer worked great.

A brief info about the pick-up at the port building via WhatsApp would not have been bad, but it still worked perfectly. A great boat, 25 would have easily fit on it, we were with 8 guests during the dolphin watching, half of them went snorkeling. Hard to believe, but there were countless dolphins. There must have been hundreds. And the reef for snorkeling also offered a lot. Schools of fish of all colors, good equipment, drinks and small cakes. A perfect trip. Many Thanks

Great snorkeling, saw lots of turtles! The pickup was super easy and convenient. I highly recommend going on this tour if you’re in Oman. The water is beautiful and it’s a great way to cool off when it’s super hot outside.

This Island tour was so worth it. The water was absolutely incredible and we saw so many Turtles.

Excellent trip from organization, activity and execution.
