After morning pickup from your hotel in Fujairah, settle inside a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and travel north along the UAE coast toward Dibba, located just across the Omani-UAE border.
Along the way, admire the views of the rocky Hajar Mountains in one direction and the sparkling Gulf of Oman in the other. Then, after about 90 minutes on the road, cross the international border into Oman and arrive in Dibba, where your double-decker Omani dhow awaits.
Admire the traditional-style, wooden boat and be shown aboard by the friendly crew. Find a comfortable spot on deck and take in your first views of the Musandam Peninsula’s shores as you sail onto the open sea.
Then, simply soak in the sunshine and scenery as you cruise up and down along Musandam’s coast, passing high, barren mountains, fjord-like bays, hidden coves, and remote Omani fishing villages.
Stay refreshed with unlimited onboard sodas and refreshments, and watch for the bottleneck and humpback dolphins that frequent the waters. Have your camera ready, too, as you sail by sea caves and places of interest such as the abandoned stone village of Haffa and stunning, mountain-backed inlet of Zighy Bay.
Stop for an optional swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear seas and afterward, savor a delicious buffet lunch of traditional Arabic dishes served on deck.
Then, following lunch, enjoy the cruise back toward base, relaxing in the sunshine and stopping for a second optional swim and snorkel.
After four to five hours on the water, dock back at the starting point, and relax on your ride back to Fujairah, where your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.
