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.
  • 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.

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

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
