Itinerary
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 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 waters.

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 suppled) in the cool, clear waters.

Then, savor an Arabic-style buffet lunch on deck before making a second swim stop and finishing your approximately 6-hour cruise at Khasab. Your tour ends with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.

Dream Journey
Overview
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.
Highlights
  • See 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
