What people are saying about Khasab

Outstanding trip. Easy, comfortable shuttle bus ride from our doorstep in Dubai to the boat Khasab. Friendly, attentive crew provided plentiful cold drinks, buffet lunch, and fresh fruit and helped my elderly mother so that she could lay down on the floor pillows and swim with everyone else (she uses a wheelchair). Would definitely book this trip again.

The gentleman who picked us up, the dhow captain and his crew, we're all very pleasant, friendly and eager to help, yet remain a comfortable distance so that they don't over-whelme the guests - we had a very relaxing and refreshing trip

The boat tour and jeep tour were well organized. The boat crew and the jeep tour guide did an excellent job. The lunch in the restaurant was also excellent. This combination tour can be recommended without hesitation

No muss and no fuss. Pleasant day on the water. Great crew. Good lunch. Only suggestion would be to have more diet drinks on board other than water.

Nice trip, nice tour guide. He even caught a squid and grilled it for us on the boat!
