What to expect

If you love the sea, then this tour is for you. Get back to nature and enjoy the beauties of the Fjords and the underwater world for which Musandam is famous for. Aboard of a typical wooden Dhow, traditionally decorated, you will sail the blue waters of the Fjords surrounded by stupendous mountains and cliffs overlooking pristine bays. While dolphins will play and jump around the Dhow, giving you the opportunity to take fantastic pictures, Cormorants and Herons will accompany you during the trip. Small settlements like Al Maqleb and Qanaha, built between mountain and sea, will be visible during the cruise.

After you cross the Khor ash Sham, the most popular fjord of Musandam, well known for its crystal waters and the majestic view, the captain will anchor at the Telegraph Island where you can swim or snorkel in the calm waters and get close to the marine creatures which live underwater. During the cruise, mineral water, soft drinks, fresh fruits, tea, and coffee will be served.
