Relax with a hotel pickup and drop-off from central Muscat
Following pickup from your hotel in central Muscat, you’re transferred to Marina Bandar Al-Rowdha. Here, take a seat aboard a fiberglass vessel designed to provide panoramic views over the shimmering Arabian Sea.
Although sightings aren’t guaranteed, your morning dolphin-watching quest offers a good chance to observe these playful marine mammals, which often frolic alongside the boat. Glide past the mountainous coastline of Oman and search the waters for spinner, bottlenose and common dolphins that frequently ride the surf around the bow and leap from the water to spin several feet into the air!
Hear commentary about the dolphins’ feeding habits and about other marine life, including humpback whales and even rare false killer whales that thrive in the pristine waters (depending on the season; best between October and May).
After your dolphin cruise, you'll head back to the marina for a convenient transfer to your hotel.

Nice experience and wonderful landscapes, additional comments the boat's driver found the Dolphins but after finding them, he did not show much interest because we tried to see them more as if other boats did. I also consider that it is very important to advise all the people on the tour that they should take care of the environment and avoid bringing plastic elements and not eating inside the boat because due to the speed people let some elements go.
The guide didn’t explain anything about the species, but we saw tons of dolphins! (We did the 1000 tour.) Very neat morning activity for site seeing. The view of the land from the water was nice as well. Khimji house of travel was professional and communicative.
This was such a great tour! We were able to see a ton of dolphins on this particular afternoon -- I was in awe! The company picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off by the boat. The company offered some water and snacks which was extremely helpful. We were on a relatively small boat which was nice and felt a bit more intimate. I was thrilled to see so many dolphins in that space. I'm so glad that I booked this tour, which was a last minute decision -- I would highly recommend it to my networks!
Hundreds of dolphins seen, all doing their best to show why they are called spinner dolphins! We were then taken along the coast and shown several historical sites and places of interest. Only six of us on the boat so lots of space to move around and get into position to take photos.
