Sail along the mountainous shores of Oman’s Musandam Peninsula on this 8-hour cruise trip from Ras Al Khaimah. Settle on a traditional-style, double-decker wooden 'dhow' boat in Dibba in Oman, and absorb the scenery and sea breezes as you pass mountains, fjord-like inlets, beaches, and villages. Enjoy optional swims and snorkels, plus unlimited onboard sodas and an Arabic lunch on deck. Use of snorkel equipment, round-trip transfers, and hotel pickup and drop-off included.
  • Musandam dhow cruise day trip from Ras Al Khaimah
  • Cross desert and mountains to Oman’s Musandam Peninsula for a dhow cruise
  • Cruise past Musandam's fjords, caves, villages, and rocky peaks
  • Relax on deck, watch for dolphins, and enjoy optional swims and snorkels
  • Arabic buffet lunch and unlimited onboard sodas and refreshments
  • Use of snorkeling equipment
  • Air-conditioned transport, dhow cruise, and hotel pickup and drop-off included
After morning pickup from your Ras Al Khaimah hotel, relax into your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and venture southeastward to the Omani-UAE border.

On route, travel through the Hajar Mountains, the range of mountains that dominates Oman’s Musandam Peninsula. Gaze at the arid, rugged peaks and as you near the coast, catch scintillating glimpses of the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Oman.
Cross the border into Oman and after a total of about 1.5 to 2 hours on the road, arrive in Dibba, where your Omani dhow is docked.

 Admire the beautiful, double-decker wooden boat and be welcomed aboard by the friendly crew.
Find a comfortable spot on the shaded or sunny decks and savor the breezes as you glide onto the open sea. 
Then, drink in the views as you cruise along Musandam’s coast, sailing by towering mountains, fjord-like inlets, deserted beaches, and sleepy fishing villages. Keep your camera ready as you waft by highlights such as natural sea caves, mountain-framed Zighy Bay, and the abandoned village of Haffa.

As you cruise, enjoy unlimited sodas and refreshments, and watch for the bottleneck and humpback dolphins that reside in the local waters. Enjoy an optional swim and snorkel in the translucent seas and afterward, dig into a tasty buffet lunch of traditional Arabic dishes.

After your meal, sail back to dock, relishing the scenery from deck and stopping for a second optional swim and snorkel.

After about five hours on the water, disembark your dhow at the original departure pier, and transfer back to Ras Al Khaimah, where your trip finishes with a hotel drop-off.

Excellent tour. All the crew were brilliant and very friendly. The soft drinks were free flowing and the lunch buffet very good with lots of local foods. The two snorkelling stops were excellent with giant rays and large parrot fish amongst others - well worth the trip.
