The inlet is calm, sheltered and surrounded by high mountains that encapsulate the beauty of Oman. The lagoon covers over 17 kilometres and is indeed breathtaking.
The area overlooks several fishing villages such as Nadifi, Qanah, Maqlab, Sham and Seeb which will be on the route that the dhow cruise will embark upon. However, gaining access to these unique fishing villages is only achieved through speed boats.
Apart from the breath-taking beauty and several fishing villages, the main attraction at Musandam Fjords is the cute, loving and playful Dolphins.
The Dolphins are native to Musandam fjords and have been born and raised in the vicinity. The Half Day dhow cruise aims to explore and interact with these magnificent mammals and get to know them on a personal level. While you’re on a traditional dhow, you can see them swimming alongside the dhows in an attempt to race them as a fun activity.

Musandam Fjord - A Great place for snorkelling

Apart from the lovely mammals and breathtaking views, Musandam Fjords are considered a great destination for snorkelers. Along with the fun-loving dolphins, you can snorkel or swim into the Musandam fjords and witness reef fish, coral reefs, depending on luck, reef sharks, and green turtles also in the blue sea. It’s considered a perfect destination for swimming and snorkelling as the water is crystal clear and clean.
A fun fact about one of the locations is that a small island known as Telegraph Island was used in 1864 as a base to connect to the telegraph cable.
The traditional dhow will be taking guests to this location to witness a piece of the history of Khasab Musandam.

A dolphin-watching trip is one of the main highlights of the half day dhow cruise at Khasab Musandam. It isn’t every day you get a chance to interact and see them in their natural habitat.
Dolphins are intelligent animals with complex social structures and are friendly sea mammals who enjoy following traditional boats. Once the captain finds them, he reaches close to them and shifts gear to pick up speed thereby attracting them to race. Their fascination with boats is adorable and is a lovely sight to witness. The travellers journeying with us can enjoy the rare moments of watching the exciting and active dolphins closing in.
