Unforgettable Dolphin Boat Tour! We had an absolutely amazing experience on the dolphin boat tour today! From the moment we boarded, Moyath and Rajak made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable. We were thrilled to see so many dolphins up close, and the excitement was contagious thanks to Moyath and Rajak's enthusiasm. They went above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic time, offering us constantly soft drinks, as well as Arabic coffee & tea. And we enjoy the lunch buffet too. They also took some nice pics of us. This tour was the highlight of our trip, and I can't recommend it enough. If you're looking for a memorable adventure on the water, this is it! Snorkeling was amazing too! Thank you, Moyath and Rajak, for making it such a special day!

The boat trip through the fjords of Musandam was absolutely breathtaking! From the moment we stepped on board, we were enchanted by the majestic beauty of the fjords. The highlight was spotting the playful dolphins swimming alongside our boat, which was an unforgettable experience. Additionally, snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters was a true delight, with colorful fish and stunning coral reefs. The crew was professional and friendly, ensuring that we felt comfortable and safe throughout the entire journey. In summary, an unforgettable experience that I would recommend to everyone!

Excellent trip. The guide was friendly and very informative. We stopped at two places for swimming and snorkelling and they were both excellent. Lunch was excellent with lovely homemade traditional food. Water and juice offered all through the trip. Definitely highly recommend you try this experience.
