Pas assez d'espace à l'ombre. Quelques canettes de bière auraient été les bienvenues.....

We took an authentic looking old boat out into the beautiful fjords of Musandam, and it is truly beautiful. It was easy to spot dolphins, and we managed to get them to ride alongside the boat. I got the impression it's pretty easy to spot dolphins here, we saw them on at least four different occasions. The staff on the boat was extremely friendly and attentive, and there was always tea and coffee, as well as fruits and snacks available. There was also a meal around midday which was also very good. The guide spoke both English and German well. The only thing I need to warn about (and this is not a negative thing, just something to be aware of), is that we took this trip from Dubai, and this is quite a long drive, more than three and a half hours each way. Still worth it in my opinion, but just so people know.
There were only 4 people in the minibus to Oman. We had a very experienced driver who explained us a lot and guided us through the border formalities. We were 12 passengers on the Dau - a maximum of 18 passengers. There is enough space for everyone on the pillows to enjoy a relaxing boat tour. The captain and his crew member were super friendly. There was a map and explanations of all places on the fjord. Cold drinks and tea / coffee were plentiful throughout the trip. The oriental lunch buffet was delicious. The boat tour started at 10 a.m. and lasted until 4 p.m. We were impressed by the landscape in the fjord, enjoyed snorkeling in the warm water between the colorful schools of fish and watched dolphins extensively. It was a super relaxing day in beautiful surroundings.
The experienced driver who helped us with the border formalities. The very warm welcome on the dhow. The extremely careful three-man crew, which made you feel welcome at all times and took care of everything. The trip to the fjord was great. Dolphins, sharks, sea urchins and a ray offered a good program for the wonderful landscape. The guide also explained the situation of the residents in the very small coastal villages and distributed a map for orientation. The supply of food and drink, especially the tea on board, was very positive.
Don't miss this tour if you intend to visit northern Oman. The crew were fantastic and the landscape barren and beautiful. Service was top notch and swimming great. Lots of dolphins performing alongside the boat.
The trip was well organized and I liked the fact that everything was included, especially the visa and exit fees.
