Description

Discover the wild beauty of Musandam during a cruise on the clear waters of the famous Fjords of Arabia!

Leaving from your hotel, travel along the west coast of the Emirates to Khasab, capital of the Musandam peninsula located north of Oman. Once there, you will set sail for a day cruise aboard a dhow, a traditional Arab sailing boat.

The boat will take you to the heart of the fjords where you will be amazed by the beauty of nature: steep cliffs and turquoise waters make this an idyllic setting for a cruise! There will be an opportunity to stop near the famous Telegraph Island. It was on this island in the 19th century that the English installed a submarine cable to provide a telephone link between India and the United Kingdom!

A self-service buffet and drinks will be available during your cruise. You will also have the opportunity to swim in the clear waters and go diving with a mask and snorkel. With a bit of luck, you might even catch a glimpse of wild dolphins during your trip.

You will be taken back to your hotel after a day spent in the heart of nature.

  • Excellent ! formidable ! À faire absolument ! Nous avons été accompagné par les dauphins à deux reprises, un moment extraordinaire. Le repas était parfait, nager dans les eaux claires au milieu des poissons c’était génial. Seuls au milieu de ce sublime décor naturel j’en garderai un formidable souvenir. Un grand merci à l’équipage au top 👌 super gentil aux petits soins qui a également contribué à faire de ce moment, un moment inoubliable. Également je remercie notre chauffeur qui été au top également ! Merci à tous
