Dhow Cruise

Take in the natural beauty of the Hajar mountains from a traditional dhow

Dhow Cruise

Musandam is a little over two hours from Dubai in Oman, but the rugged rural paradise couldn’t be further removed from the hustle and bustle of the city – and the best way to see it is from the water.

Take in the stunning scenery surrounding the majestic fjords as you stretch out on a traditionally decorated wooden dhow. Most cruises are available in half-day or full-day options and include lunch and refreshments onboard.

For the thrill-seekers there’s also some exciting activities you can get involved in. Musandam Sea Adventure Travel & Tourism company provides snorkeling gear, life jackets, towels and basic shower and toilet facilities so you can see the colourful marine life up close before hopping back on board and enjoying the scenic mountains looming above.

If you’re lucky, you’ll see the indigenous dolphins for which these fjords are famed, if not you can still expect a few blissful hours reclining on deck.

Either way you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away from the nearest skyscraper.
