The entire crew were extremely professional and kind, from the moment we got picked up all the way to the drop off in the evening. The dhow is clean and equiped with everything that is needed for the short trip. They provide towels, if needed. There is a small shower too. The food was very nice. And the trip itself absolutely astonishing. Excellent snorkeling, in blue and cool waters.

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.
