Great experience with good customer service. Left hotel at 8am though some had started out from Abu Dhabi at 6am!. Arrived in Dibba 2 hours later and boarded our Dhow. Very comfortable, constant availability of water/juices/tea/coffee. First stop was for around an hour and the sea was lovely... could stay near boat or take motor boat to beach. Everyone had their own snorkelling equipment though not many fish to see until we were about to leave. Moved on to another destination and had lovely buffet lunch while on the move. Had another session swimming/snorkelling and also visited a cave in the motor boat. Really relaxing and worthwhile trip and well looked after. Journey was slower back to Dubai we were the first drop off after 3 hours but stops are made for toilet breaks etc. A great day out if you are prepared for variable transit times to and from Dibba.

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 :)
