About
Visiting neighboring Oman from Dubai and cruising its Musandam coast is difficult to arrange independently, especially with border crossings involved. This trip eliminates the hassles, leaving you to simply absorb the scenery and atmosphere of this untouched Arabian region. Drive into the Musandam Peninsula and sail its mountain-framed shores by dhow (Arabian boat), with swimming, snorkeling, and lunch included. Return transport, snorkel gear, and entry visa are included for ease.

Highlights
  • Drive and cruise along Oman’s Musandam coast in a day from Dubai
  • Visit neighboring Oman and enjoy a dhow trip along Musandam's rocky shores
  • Pass cliffs and bays, look for dolphins, and stop to swim and snorkel
  • Seamless and easy: onboard lunch, drinks, entry visa, and transport included
What to expect
  • Board an air-conditioned minivan at your Dubai hotel and trace the UAE coast to Musandam. This stunning peninsula area is part of neighboring Oman and is composed of craggy mountains and tiny villages. Once across the Omani border, drive to the picturesque port of Khasab, and settle on your dhow (traditional Arabian boat) to cruise along the shoreline, known as the “Norway of Arabia” for its cliffs, inlets, and aquamarine water. Admire the scenery from the open or shaded decks, and watch for dolphins around the boat. Drop anchor off Telegraph Island, home to a British telegraph station in the 1800s, and enjoy a swim or snorkel (equipment supplied) in the cool, clear water. Then, savor an Arabic-style buffet lunch on deck, before making a second swim stop and finishing your cruise at Khasab. Your tour ends with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.

Aug 2019 • Couples
When we were staying in Dubai, we had an option to book this excursion. A day trip to Oman. What an amazing experience it was. The boat trip from Oman border to middle of the sea was so scenic. The boat staff who were Bangladeshis went out their way to accommodate us. They cooked home food for us guest. We did various things like snorkelling, speed boat, banana boat, quick get off at the beach, fishing. Sadly we didn’t get to see the dolphins as the tour company promised but that’s ok. Defo worth booking this if you’re bored of Dubai same routine.

What a Rugged Area--well worth the effort to go up and back
Jun 2019
A very full day from pick-up to drop-off, but well worth the effort. Had a little longer time than expected to make the border crossing into Oman, but the scenery and experience was well worth it and will better prepare me to return for a longer stay. The crew on the Dhow was very friendly and very willing to help make the trip fun and enjoyable. The meal was good and plenty of drinks. Swimming was very enjoyable at the two stops we made. Will go up there again, but for a longer stay.

Simply amazing
Feb 2019 • Couples
This was by far the best part of our holiday. Oman is beautiful and in the Fjords it is very peaceful. We were picked up at 6:30 from our hotel in Dubai. It took us approx. 3-4 hours to get to Oman. At the borders the procedure was conducted very fast and smooth. The ship itself was covered in carpets and very comfortable pillows. You get tea, coffee and soft drinks all the time. The food was also really good. We got some chicken meat with bread and salat, a mini buffet with an excellent taste. We had two snorkelling opportunities. At the first one there were a lot of baby jellyfish, which were amazing to see and to touch. At the second snorkelling stop we saw a lot of fishes. The water wasn't that cold in February. It was definitely worth it. We also saw dolphins two times. They were jumping on the sides of our ship. It was amazing!! Our guide was really friendly and explained a lot about the Fjords and the people who live there. The other two guides on the boat were extremely friendly too and asked every 15 minutes if we want something to drink. What a service!! There is also a toilet on the boat, where you can also change to your swim clothes. I would really recommend this tour to everyone. Yes, it takes some time to get there from Dubai, but you have toilet breaks. The boat cruise took approx. 6 hours and will stay forever in our memory.

Musandam.... The Hidden Gem 💎
Calling this place a gem is no understatement. This tour is one of the best ways of exploring the gulf of Oman. This place is not all that crowded like the other touristy places, the natural beauty of this place is well preserved & maintained.
The day was long & packed with activities like snorkeling, banana boat ride, swimming, speed boat ride to limestone caves etc.....

Musandam hideout
Hidden at the entrance to the Persian Gulf is Musandam. It’s remoteness protests its vast beauty. Easily reachable from Dubai or southern gulf UAE costal cities. This trip takes you to a simpler life of sun , fish & emerald green water. You are taken by boat to hidden fishing villages. Bring your bathing suit for a swim. Bring your camera for close up of dolphins. Except to wait at the Emirati/ Omen border,this is the price to pay to enter paradise. Once there you will not be disappointed.

Fun, but LONG day
Apr 2018 • Couples
I gave this an 'Excellent' review as the activity itself is fun. The boat ride, swimming, finding dolphins, were all great. Also, to get to see such a unique geographic area was wonderful. However, there is a warning I must give. It is a LONG day and the drive to and from Dubai can be draining, especially if you still have not recovered from the long flight over ( if you are coming from the US as we were). The drive to the boat took more than 3 hours (takes a bit of time to cross into Oman) and the drive back to Dubai took 4 hours. We stopped a few times for bathroom breaks, but the roads in Oman are VERY hilly and wind road and round. Not a relaxing ride. I still think it is a great trip, but take it when you are well rested!

Relaxing cruise, great swimming and snorkeling
Mar 2018 • Couples
Warning - this is a LONG day trip. Pickup was at 630am at Spinneys in Burjaman (which was 30 minutes from our hotel) and we weren't dropped off until almost 9pm at Spinneys. You will spend half of that time on the bus, as there are multiple pick up points after you and the bus goes really slow. The driver does not speak at all or provide any information or point out sights. He was really good at honking his horn literally as soon as the light turned green, even if we were 15 cars back. Super annoying. Border crossing into Oman took about 20-30 minutes. We all stayed on the bus and a guard came on and looked at each passport. Border crossing back into UAE took about an hour. We waited in a long line and when it was out turn, everyone had to get off the bus, show their passport to the guard in the booth and then wait to get back on until a guard cleared the bus. The dhow cruise part of the tour was good, not at all hot like I expected 90+ degrees in Oman to be. They had water and juice, as well as some snacks and fruit, available throughout the day. Lunch was pretty good, mostly rice, vegetable, and chicken dishes and soda offered as well. You initially cruise for about an hour, and then they do banana boat rides. They spent well over and hour doing this which is a long time to wait if you aren't participating. Then they cruised to the beach/snorkel area and you had about an hour there. They have boats that will take you to the beach and also drop you off at snorkel spots (they have gear if you don't bring your own). They even made a special trip just for the two of us and came back and picked us up at a snorkel spot because we asked to be dropped off further out. Once back on the boat, they served lunch while the boat stayed anchored. I feel like they could have started driving back while we ate lunch to shorten the day a bit. After lunch, they headed to a fishing spot and let people fish for about 20-30 minutes before heading back to the marina. There are toilets and changing rooms on the dhow, but beware that there is nowhere to use the bathroom before getting on the boat or after. The bus driver did stop for a toilet break on the way home, as well as another stop for gas for about 30 minutes and didn't let anyone off. The tour itself is good and I would recommend (especially if you find them on Groupon!), but beware of the very long day and the not so pleasant driver.
