    Watching the dolphins & go to discover the underwater world of Oman with snorkeling masks.First experience the power, grace and speed of the dolphins in their natural environment - a truly amazing and a spectacular sight to see!! Our Captain will help you to identify the different type of dolphins, most often there are seen the acrobatic spinner, the powerful bottlenose and the common dolphin. Even if we are very successful in recovering dolphins there is no guarantee. After watching the dolphins we offer you the possibility to do snorkeling for 1 hour around the stunning bay Bandar Khiran. Oman surely ranks amongst the best snorkeling destinations in the world. You can experience the dazzling underwater world like for example snorkel with turtles� If you haven't already done it give it a try - you'll love the new world beneath the water & it gives you a truly memorable snorkeling adventure!

People went to see dolphins and got a show. The boat had water, soda, and things to eat. About snorkeling, the spot that I was taken wasn't necessarily the best. Yes, there are some schools of fish but that's it.

It was a nice private tour, wasn’t easy to watch the dolphins as the sea wasn’t so peaceful and that day. We enjoyed the Khiran area the most. Our captain was an expert but I noticed that they don’t care about safety measures at all. We cruised through the gulf area with no life
