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 2.5-hour 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.
