Blissful dhow ride through the fjords of Musandam, Oman May 03, 2010
If you like nature and spending time relaxing in beautiful weather, admiring beautiful landscapes, snorkling and may be picking up a sea urchin or two (they dont bite!) then this trip will be amazing.. and the highlight... go in the right season and you'll see a large number of dolphins following your dhow and showing off!!

the dhow are large wooden structures very quiet so don't ruin the calm experience... they stop every so often and allow people to swim in the crystal clear waters. it's very calm as its sheltered so there's nothing to worry about.

It is by far one of the best day trips I took while in Dubai.

You have a choice of either a 1/2 day or full day ride on the dhow, and at a cost of £30ish for a full day (2007) including lunch and drinks I'd choose nothing else.

Thanks for your response! Well, I think besides seeing some dolhpins it will be a great experience anyway right? And I need to have an excuse to go to Oman, so this would be great! Thanks for the info!

Yea I did... Long winding drive (u may get car sick!) but easily doable in a day even with e full day cruise nothing to do in kassab except this so pointless staying over. Also no other way to get there but to drive. October onwards is dolphin season but call up the dhow company n double check cuz I may b wrong!

Hi, this sounds really great! Is it doable to go back on forth from Dubai in one day? I would definately love to do this! Could you advise me on what is the best way to travel from Dubai to Khasab? Is december the right season to see the dolphins?
