Firstly, I want to start by complimenting the full crew of this ship. They were impeccably attentive, without being intrusive, all day long. They literally go out of their way to make the trip a great day out for all on board. Thank you all so much for all you did for us.

The drive from Dubai to Mussandam takes approx 2 hrs and it took us 30 mins to pass through border control. The staff had all our documents ready and printed for us.

The boat is lovely and very comfortable. Plenty of shade for those who want it. You're provided with unlimited/tea/coffee/juices/biscuits and fruit all day long. The lunch spread was absolutely beautiful, the food was delicious. Plenty to go around and you could help yourself to 2nd and even 3rd helpings if you wanted.

Activities: swimming/snorkeling/kayakin/speedboat ride/banana boat/fishing. The water is AMAZING!!!!

The only negative thing is you don't get to visit Oman, which I had expected and If you're expecting spectacular views and scenery on route to the port and at the coastline, you'll be a bit disappointed. The coastline is all just a vast dull rocky mountainous area.

But otherwise a GREAT day out. I'd definitely do it again. It's great value for money.

I really liked this activity. They picked me up at the hotel and then we traveled for around two hours by car before taking the cruise. The tour was well organized: they provided us with the documents required to travel to Oman. We did some activities during the day : snorkeling, fishing, paddle, etc and we had a good lunch. The staff were warm and caring.

The experience was wonderful!

I had done a similar trip several years ago with one of my sons. This trip with my husband was much better. Drive to and from Oman was comfortable. The boat was great. It only made one stop to swim (last time I did a trip there were two) but it was a long stop and the men on the boat ferried people to the beach (we swam) and took them on fast boat rides. Food was a nice selection and there were vegetarian options. Would recommend this company.

The trip was advertised as visiting Oman and the Musandam Penninsula. We did not go to either and we’re not told until we were on the boat the we would not go to Oman. The snorkeling part was a joke, no snorkels and mostly kids mask’s only.
We were told that Oman is not letting visitors in currently, which is not true. Easy to research that and determine that this company just lies to you so you don’t cancel your trip.

Dear Guest, Greetings I would like to update that, Musandam and Dibba coastline is the same. We informed via email that Tour will happen in the coastline of Dibba. Secondly, Oman is not allowing due to restrictions and we are not sure who updated you that it was opened on the date of your tour, as it got opened on 9th November only. We have noted your complaint regarding snorkeling equipment and we will make sure that it's upto the best Standards. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we are really sorry for that. Hope we can make it better for you next time

Even if we are a senior couple, the crew and the guide(Mohamad - the Egiptian) made us feel well on that wonderful trip. The water in Khasab is very clear, inviting you to swim, the dolphins were very very friendly and willing to amuse us, the lunch was very tasteful. Everything was ok, but special thanks to all the crew who did all their best to make this cruise unforgettable for us.Thanks!

The crew was very hospitable, friendly and helpful.
I didn’t like spending 2x 3h on the bus and “only” 5 h on the boat. And half of that time the boat stayed in the same location. The activities on the boat were okay, not awesome.

Mr Timo i know you feel bad but the thing is you are crossing border and enter other country and also you are passing 3 different cities like Sharjah , Ajman that's is why its take time and i investigate from my team they told me they ask for boat ride and banana boat but you didn't agree most beautiful part of this tour is Banana boat ride all guest went but you didn't .and 2nd part of your review about boat crew is good and we happy that our crew taking care of all guest .

My friends and I decided to book the Oman Musandam dhow cruise given the reviews and glitzy pictures depicting clear, beautiful waters as well as beautiful islands and fishing villages.

However, we were severely disappointed for several reasons:

1. The hotel pick up and transfer was advertised as 2.5 hours, this took 4.5 hours and was poorly organised with bus transfers, Petrol stops as well as a detour to other hotels which took over an hour.

2.The dhow boat itself was lovely and the food was ok, we had to climb over 6 boats to get to our Dhow which was an experience and not something that they tell you about when you book.

3. False advertising. There were no fishing villages or islands. The dhow takes you to a cove with a beach and arranged activities. There was only one stop

4. The beach was filthy, full of plastic waste, pollution from the boats, decomposing palm trees, wild dogs and goats, which was not advertised on the trip. There were plenty of activities if you wanted to snorkel or banana boat but the water was not clear and this for me was the most disappointing part of the trip.

5. The water was so choppy that 5 in our party were violently sick including one of my friends. We felt the tour should have been postponed however this was not the case.

Overall for £70 + this was very poor value for money and I would not recommend

worst trip I have ever done, it was advertised as a 2 hour transfer from Dubai where in fact it was a 4.5 hour transfer and we stopped to change buses and then stopped again to get fuel. not taken to fishing village either not historical Telegraph and Seebi islands and only had one stop for swimming.

The sea was very choppy and half the people on the trip were sea sick and I do not feel that we should have sailed as most of the trip thought we were going to capsize.

Beach was dirty with plastic bottles and there was a dog roaming around, I would not recommend this trip even if it was free it was so bad and falsely advertised to do more when in fact you do not do half the things that was advertised.

Very disappointing and definitely not worth the money for what you got.

Definitely a must do during a visit to Dubai. Whatever you do, don't forget your swim suits, sunblock/ lotion! . I never imagined I would nearly reach the Strait of Hormuz. It takes the whole day- transport included and it was an organized well coordinated early morning hotel pick up and early evening drop off. The professional driver Shams was on time and hospitable. He offered WC stops for those who needed and even had a moment for local karak ( milky spiced black tea). The drive out of Dubai, passing Sharjah, Umm Quaim, then Fujairah seemed bonus. We passed stretches of protected desert dotted with many national trees amd camels. The border process to and fro Oman was efficient. The photo ops are many and I even managed to pull out my sketch and paint box. Captain Babu moored for 2 hours in a calm cove. Rogi was the tour coordinator making sure we were all informed, participating and keeping safe. His timing is like clockwork as there was so much to do. Everyone boarded the launch boat to enjoy the beach. The banana boat activity was fun and snorkeling this area is special indeed- equipment provided. The water was great for swimming and others sun tanned on the upper deck of the dhow on Chaise loungers. The thrilling speed boat experience is not for the faint of heart and woke up our appetites! The lunch provided was not a light picnic. It was a buffet. Salads, a pasta, rice, flatbread, fish, chicken, beef were offered with endless juice boxes and water as well dates and coffee. We set sail after lunch and saw more of the limestone lined coastline. Jagged austere landscapes had my imagination going. We saw a traditional fishing village from afar and were given lots of historical tidbits. Our multinational group numbered roughly 45 people with an infant and school aged kids. We stopped a a few places to drop fishing lines and a few caught local fish. Everyone had really fine time! The on board facilities to change and WC were adequate. The communication was the best. I appreciate it when everything is clear and as stated and meets beyond my expectations. I hope to repeat this experience with our company for a team building event. Thanks a lot!

We joined this tour because we wanted to see some natural parts of Middle East. Plus, it was only three hours of drive to go to Musandam, Oman. I never thought I could visit Oman while traveling in Dubai! Pick up time was perfect, and no one missed the van. Cruising itself was very relaxing, entertaining with good food and drinks, wild dolphins and banana boat ride and swimming. One thing I regret about this trip is that I tried the banana boat for the first time, and right after I fell from the boat, I felt neck pain and it still hurts now (after 4 days). Over all, we loved every single part of this boat trip because the crew were very helpful and friendly, and we could see beautiful wild dolphins on the way back to the port!
