From Khasab: Snorkeling and Jebel Harim Mountain Tour

1. From Khasab: Snorkeling and Jebel Harim Mountain Tour

Start with a 3-hour Dhow cruise to the Khor Sham fjord where you can admire beautiful scenery and colorful blue seas. Drop the anchor near Telegraph Island and enjoy some time for swimming and snorkeling in the ocean. Discover an underwater world full of colorful marine life. If you are lucky, you may even spot some of the dolphins who like to congregate in the fjord.  After you finish the cruise, embark on a 3-hour jeep tour to Jabel Harim, the highest peak of the Musandam Peninsula. Buckle up in a 4x4 jeep and make your way through the mountains, with many scenic stops along the way. Stop at the Bedouin village of Sayh, a picturesque settlement that sprawls along the mountainside. See the ancient petroglyphs of the village, which date back over 3,000 years. Pass a remarkable fossil wall, with specimens such as crabs and shellfish clearly visible. Finally, reach the summit of Jebel Harim located at 1,800 meters above sea level. From the Khawr Najid viewpoint, see the vast Indian Ocean unfolding below you. See Khasab in the distance, and the town of Dibba. Many of the rocks at the summit are also studded with superbly preserved fossils, offering the remarkable sight of ancient submarine creatures including mollusks, fish, clams, and numerous trilobites.

What people are saying about Khasab

Despite a very short-term booking (less than 17 hours beforehand), everything went great. Picked up from the cruise terminal, short city tour. Then on the dhow, the boat driver was great. Tried very hard to entertain us, to attract dolphins (we saw it very close) and did not look at the clock. Explained a lot to us. Highly Recommended . Despite exceeding the booked time frame, no additional costs and returned on time to the ship. Very hospitable.

Hello everyone, it was a great tour. The local people put a lot of effort into it. The hospitality with fresh fruit and drinks was excellent, of course no alcohol, but water and juices. Everyone was very keen that we could see dolphins, which we actually did by attracting the boaters. I can recommend the tour to everyone

Very nice boat trip. There were free soft drinks, tea, coffee and fruit on the boat. A simple toilet, a fresh water shower and towels were also available. Dolphins could be observed for a relatively long time. The crew was very nice and helpful. This excursion was an absolute highlight for us!

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

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