A great way to Experience Musandam’s Coastline
Dhow cruises are a great way to experience Musandam’s coastline in the traditional sense. Many marinas and tour operators provide dhow cruises that can include island visits, swimming, barbecues, and more.
What’s your pleasure? A sporty sloop or graceful catamaran. A convivial yacht or speedy see-doo. How about a carefree course on a stately dhow. Game fishing. Dolphin and Whale watching. Boogie boards and banana boats. And diving, diving, diving. All of the above is available if you know where to look and the best ones are right here.
Cruises in Oman are an inseparable part of its history. Oman is surrounded by the sea and Omanis are famous for their love of their azure waters. Some villages in Oman, like Kumzar village in the far north, can only be reached by boat.
Cruises abound from many beaches and cities, and there are specialised centres such as: Marina Bandar Al Rawda in Muscat Governorate. Many tour operators organise a variety of activities, whether it is watching dolphins or sailing. These tours are not limited to the capital Muscat, as both Musandam and the city of Sur in A’Sharqiyah South Governorate (Eastern Region) are famous for their marine trips. There is barely a beach in Oman that does not organise such trips.
