Travel to mountainous Musandam, a pocket-sized chunk of Oman northeast of Dubai, and settle aboard a wooden ‘dhow’ sailboat at Dibba for a 5.5-hour cruise. Then, simply sit back and drink in the gorgeous scenery and seascapes as you waft by rocky peaks, secluded coves and sandy beaches. Watch for pods of dolphins, stop to bathe or snorkel, and stay refreshed with unlimited complimentary sodas and a scrumptious Arabic buffet lunch on deck.

Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

The northernmost part of Oman, Musandam boasts one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines. Made up of fjord-like bays, steep mountains and sea caves, it's truly unspoiled, with only a few tiny villages, so it feels completely cut off from the world.

Fantastic guide explained everything to us in great detail, stayed with us throughout the day and made sure he spent time with all of the group while on the cruise. Beautiful scenery and great food on the dhow as well. Would have done it all again if I've been here long enough.

This was a wonderful experience, not only the cruise on the dhow but the drive from Dubai was brilliant, the scenery was so different and we felt we were seeing the real desert. We had a great swim in the Arabian Sea and a very relaxed experience. I would highly recommend this tour. It is a long drive but well worth it with so much to see.

Hamada and the crew were the perfect hosts! Hotel pick up was right on time, we received lots of interesting facts about the Emirates on the way to Musandam. Water, juice, biscuits, fruit and a delicious lunch were included. Definitely recommended :)

I really enjoyed this tour. We had an on time pickup with comfortable transport and friendly driver who shared a lot of information about the places we were passing. The passport control was managed by the tour staff with no effort on our part, and the boat trip was great - including speed boat to a beach, visit to a cave, sea turtle sighting and the opportunity to go swimming/snorkelling have a look for the salp, which aren't jellyfish!, and a tasty lunch with refreshments and snacks throughout the day. I would highly recommend it as a way to see the different landscapes of the Emirates as well as a bit of Oman.

The tour was a great way to see a part of the Middle East people are unlikely the see. The Gulf of Oman has some barren, picturesque scenery and the journey by dhow is a great way to see it. Our tour guides were absolutely fantastic and accommodating and knew the area quite well. Particular highlights included the time swimming in the ocean, as well as the food they served on board which was phenomenal. I'd highly recommend this tour it was very well-organized and laid back. If you're lucky like us, then you'll have a very small group as well. Made it much more flexible.
