What you'll do
Pick up at the port by our guide identified with a sign who will take you to the pire where our DHOW is waiting. (wooden sailing boat, characterized by triangular sails or lateen sail, shallow and usually with a single mast).
This tour is well known for the high probability of spotting dolphins and is a recommended excursion for the whole family.
The Musandam fjords are characterized by one of the most unique biospheres in the world, they cross the limestone mountains of Haja, their beauty is unsurpassed and the marine fauna of this area is immense.
Once on board, we will set sail for the longest and most imposing fjord in Musandam, “The Norway of Arabia”, the Khor Sham fjord.
We will contemplate its clear and turquoise waters in the middle of limestone cliffs, and hopefully we will see dolphins and perhaps they will accompany us to the island of Telegraph where we will anchor (or in its surroundings).
We can then take a bath, do some snorkeling and enjoy drinks, tea, coffee or soft drinks and fresh fruit included in the price of the excursion.
We offer snorkeling equipment (diving) and life jacket included in the price. At the end of the cruise, we will return to port for farewell.
