The driver was punctual, friendly and narrated events along the way to Oman. The crew on the boat were very courteous , pointed out projects that will occur in the future. Served the buffet on time and ensured there were plenty of fruits and soft drinks and water available at all times.

Wish our driver could tell us more about Dubai, Oman, etc. It was mostly a quiet car journey to Musandam, with our driver sometimes being on the phone. At Musandam, it was an ordinary cruise on the Dhow, cruising along Strait of Hormuz.

Nice relaxing day on the water with some nice travel through the mountains. The boat was comfy, not crowded and the food was surprisingly excellent given it was carried on from shore. The coffee was hot and tasty. The staff were gracious, helpful and entertaining. The highlight for me was the trip into the cave. It was a wonderful experience and quite beautiful. Definitely worth the trip out!

We were picked up on time in fact early from our hotel. The journey to the Oman border took approximately 2 hours from Dubai. Our transport was a dedicated mini-van, so perfectly comfortable. My only critisiscm of this part of the journey is that our driver was seriously addicted to his mobile phone and couldn't leave it alone. Upon arrival, we boarded the large, well equipped Dhow, together with approximately 40 other guests. This isn't a personal private cruise. As for the tour itself, our hosts were very attentive, providing a constant supply of tea, coffee, water and soft drinks. Beer is available, but for and additional supplement. The scenery of the Oman coastline was quite stark, but strangely beautiful and provided a pleasant background to the cruise. During our stops, we made use of the snorkelling equipment around the boat and explored the small bays. Watch the sea urchins, as they are everywhere. We also went on a short powerboat tour of a small cave, which was ok, but nothing spectacular. Other guests took the opportunity to sunbathe on one of the beaches, whilst others were content to stay on the boat. The food provided was certainly welcome and consisted of plenty of Middle Eastern style dishes, flatbreads, chicken, fish and pasta for the less adventurous. Onboard, we could buy traditional fragrances and other small gifts and trinkets. Travelling to and from Oman, together with the tour itself took pretty much a whole day, so make sure that you leave enough time in your itinerary. Overall, this was a pleasant experience and something I would recommend to others to try.

This was supposed to be a Khasab Fjord tour, and instead they changed it to Dibba. The driver was 30 minutes late. Great food and beverages on board. Snorkeling pretty poor - cloudly water and TONS of sea urchins. The scenery was just a bunch of rocks... and not pretty ones - just bare rocks as far as one can see. If this was supposed to be 'like Norway's fjords - that quote was from some who has never been to Norway!

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.

Our tour guide was great, picked us up on time and was informative along the way. It is about 2hrs from Dubai to Dibba and a good opportunity to get out of the city centre see the desert, camels and surrounds. The dhow cruise was comfortable and the crew attentive with lots of soft drinks and food. Unfortunately, we were unable to restart the dhow after our chill time in a bay up the coast. It was a battery issue. Long story short we tied alongside another dhow and the crew were able to 'jump' start. However, then there was a problem with that dhow. A couple of hours passed and whilst the crew tried to keep us entertained with speed boat jaunts and shore visits, it wore a little thin. Oman is a complete contrast to the glitz and glamour of Dubai and although it was the second time we had been there if was still an eye opener in a good way plus now a tight boarder crossing. The scenery, if honest, is hostile not in a scary way but the lack of vegetation, starkness and rocks define its contours, so no pretty camera shots here. There was also an opportunity to snorkel near the rocks but the water is so warm it is hard to imagine anything surviving, so really nothing to see, plus it is also deep. All in all we enjoyed the day and I would recommend. Due to Ramadan there was a good number of people on the dhow, which I would imagine could be quite crowded in high season. Dibba is a lovely city and has fabulous roundabouts with large sculptures depicting the culture of the region, very impressive.

An absolutely stunning place must go if your are in Dubbai, the dhow cruise was very relaxing and if you don't snorkel the crew will take you to the beach on a dinghy. Great food too! Mark and Maria
