Musandam Khasab Day Trip and Dhow Cruise from Dubai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Escape to Oman’s stunning Musandam Peninsula for a dhow cruise on this full-day trip from Dubai. Traveling by air-conditioned minivan, head to Khasab in the Musandam region, and board a ‘dhow’ (Arabian wooden boat). Admire the spectacular fjords, coves and mountains that give the coastline its nickname, 'Norway of Arabia,' and stop off rocky Telegraph Island to swim and snorkel in the aquamarine seas. Your cruise includes a buffet lunch, unlimited non-alcoholic drinks and use of snorkeling equipment.
  • Drive and cruise along Oman’s Musandam coast in a day from Dubai
  • Visit neighboring Oman and enjoy a dhow trip along Musandam's rocky shores
  • Pass cliffs and bays, look for dolphins, and stop to swim and snorkel
  • Seamless and easy: onboard lunch, drinks, entry visa, and transport included
What to Expect
Board an air-conditioned minivan at your Dubai hotel and trace the UAE coast to Musandam. This stunning peninsula area is part of neighboring Oman and is composed of craggy mountains and tiny villages.
Once across the Omani border, drive to the picturesque port of Khasab, and settle on your dhow (traditional Arabian boat) to cruise along the shoreline, known as the “Norway of Arabia” for its cliffs, inlets, and aquamarine water.
Admire the scenery from the open or shaded decks, and watch for dolphins around the boat. Drop anchor off Telegraph Island, home to a British telegraph station in the 1800s, and enjoy a swim or snorkel (equipment supplied) in the cool, clear water.
Then, savor an Arabic-style buffet lunch on deck, before making a second swim stop and finishing your cruise at Khasab. Your tour ends with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.
