What To Expect

Begin with pickup from your hotel in Ras Al Khaimah, and travel northward toward Khasab, a port city on the northern coast of Oman’s Musandam Peninsula, by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle.

Along the way, take in the Hajar Mountains, the craggy peaks that dominate the peninsula, and enjoy glorious views over the glittering Arabian Gulf.

After crossing the border into Oman, arrive in Khasab, where your Omani double-decker dhow is docked.

Admire the traditional-style wooden boat and be shown aboard by the welcoming crew. Settle on the shaded or sunny deck areas and enjoy the cooling sea breezes as you glide onto the open seas of the Straits of Hormuz.

Then, soak up the views as you sail along north Musandam's coast, often dubbed the ‘Norway of Arabia’ for its high peaks and fjord-like bays. Cruise by jagged mountains, steep cliffs, deep inlets, and deserted beaches, basking in the scenery and watching for dolphins as you travel.

Stay refreshed with unlimited onboard sodas, snacks, and fresh fruits, and about midway through your cruise, drop anchor at Telegraph Island, an uninhabited rocky islet. Set within sight of the mountainous mainland, this tiny island is home to the ruins of a British telegraph station that was used in communications between India and Britain during the 1800s.

Take an optional swim and snorkel in the aquamarine waters, and relax over a delicious buffet lunch of Arabic dishes served on deck.

Then, after your meal, enjoy another opportunity to swim or snorkel before cruising back to Khasab and docking at the original departure pier. Your day trip then concludes with a hotel drop-off in Ras Al Khaimah.

Great Day
Wanda_J, Apr 2023
Great service and fantastic experience viewing the dolphins and remote mountains along the seaside. However, regarding the snorkeling part, there is very little to view.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thanks for your comments and see you again . My regards Noor

This was by far the best tour we did from Ras al Khaimah. After crossing the border and immigration we boarded the Dibba cruise and we saw a number of dolphins, swam in the Musandam peninsula twice and admired the excellent views on the peninsula. Lunch was served on board with unlimited drinks and fruits. Our guide and the cruise captain were amazing.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thanks for your comments it's great to here that fromnout Clints see you again NOOR
Totally worth it
Yelim_O, Oct 2022
It was such an amazing experience.. I didnt expect to see so many dolphins. Snorkeling was amazing too, the guide was knowledgeable enough to take us near the island that's less crowded and cleaner. Lunch was exceptional.. why was it so tasty while looking quite ordinary?! I still crave the curry... omg
Nicht wieder, völlig überteuert.

Die Tour war sehr schön. Allerdings völlig überteuert. Andere Teilnehmer haben fast nur die Hälfte gezahlt, bei gleicher Leistung! Auf Nachfrage wurde uns eine lächerliche Erklärung gegeben . Wir können Viator nicht empfehlen.
Nette Idee, aber zu wenig Komfort zum überhöhten Preis!
Uwe_S, Oct 2022
Nettes Personal, zuvorkommende Betreuung und ausreichendes Catering, aber: 13 Menschen fahren, dicht gedrängt, stundenlang in einem Minivan zum Hafen (sowie später wieder zurück) und das dann auch noch in "Corona-Zeiten"? "Ferienspaß" stellen wir uns anders vor! Das "Schiff" war mehr ein Kahn, der seine besten Jahre schon sehr lange Zeit hinter sich hatte. Ohne richtige Toilette und Sitzgelegenheiten ist dies wohl eher ein Ausflug für "Puristen".
