    The Wadi is amazing. Its desert meets tropical climate meets fresh water meets mountains. Really nice temperature to swim in as well. Even in the summer months! What I don't see here is guidance that the water is actually quite deep. Reaching over 3 meters at some points so recommended that you are a decent swimmer.

    beautiful place. Rent a car before you go there - amazing colors for the water. Don't go during Eid season since it was very crowded, we couldn't swim in the water.
    make sure to go early morning, we went around noon, and it was very hot.
    Ladies should wear conservative clothes (not above the knee, and no spaghetti straps)

    make sure to make a stop later to "Fins" beach, it's very close to the sinkhole.

    When I decided to go to Oman I reached out to friends who have traveled there in the past. Juma and Wadi Shab Adventures came HIGHLY recommended by multiple people so I contacted him. Juma was very responsive and extremely helpful in organizing my trip. He was able to arrange pick up from the airport to my hotel in the very early morning.
    We scheduled a trip to Wadi Shab and the the sink hole one day, Wadi Bin Khalid for another day and he scheduled a snorkeling trip for me on a third day.
    I must say, Juma went above and beyond, making my visit to Oman absolutely amazing. We ended up adding on Wadi Tiwi and a drive by of the UNESCO heritage site, Qalhat after experiencing Wadi Shab.
    Oman is just so beautiful and Juma was excited to share his extensive knowledge with me! I can't say enough about my experience. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Oman! I'll be sure to use Wadi Shab Adventures and Juma again!

    This snorkeling trip was beyond amazing. You can book via whatsapp and everything is well organized. On the way you can have snacks and Fahad tells everything about the animals we will encounter and how we can respectfully snorkel with them. He also snorkels with you and takes pictures, which you receive afterwards. If we come back to Oman we will book another trip with Fahad!

    Everything on this camping trip was perfect. Shout out to saeed who helped creating the perfect camping get away in Daimaniyat Isalnd .
    We were a big group and the crew operators quickly helped load the boat (which was a very safe, clean and big boat), most importantly the boat driver was very professional in his driving.
    Once we got to the island they helped us unpack and setup the camp, they provided us with snorkeling equipment and they prepared local omani food.
    I highly recommend using this tour especially saeed to went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.

    Just finished diving Ras Abu Dawood with EuroDivers. Every bit, if not better than the Dimanyat Islands.

    Stopped at 10m for a while, and the sea life was some if the best I'd seen anywhere?

    Really good day, great organization to dive with. Totally recommend them

    This is the 2nd time I've booked with Lifetime Tours. I organized a tour for a cruise group. Kathy in the office once again handled everything efficiently. The tour was excellent and our guide very personable and open.

    We did two tours with Muscat Nature Tours: on the 1st day the Muscat City Tour and on the 2nd day the combined Desert Safari & Wadi Bani Khalid. Our guide on both days was Khalfan.

    Both tours were very well organized and Khalfan was very good in telling about the destinations and about Omani culture in general. He planned the tours around the changing weather conditions - which is rather seldom for Oman - so that we got the most out of them. He also leveraged his good local knowledge and took us eating delicious Omani food when we asked to.

    Excellent.
    Fast, exciting boat trip.
    We booked the 3 hour dolphin watch and sorkelling.
    We must have seen about a hundred dolphins.
    They were everywhere.
    Price for 2 was 42 OMN or about £90.
    Excellent value.
    Snorkelling was very popular.
    I only had a dip but could see loads under the water.
    Snacks provided.
    If you go to Muscat thus is a must.

    Had a wonderful 2 tank dive with dive master Yasser. Was able to see rays, eels and so many other beautiful fish. The equipment was well kept and the boat was in good condition. Had a great time.
