Dhow Cruise

Daily dhow cruise to the near marine villages is one of the main attractions of Khasab.

Our traditionally decorated Omani dhows will take you to the fjords of Musandam.

During the trip you can discover different fishing villages; Nadifi, Qanah, Maqlab, only reachable by boat. The old stone houses of Qanah blend in the cliffs.

The dhow anchores at the famous Telegraph Island where you can swim and snorkel in the clear waters.

The place was a station along the telegraph cable that linked London to Iraq’s southern city of Basra and onwards to Mumbai, India in 1864.

On the way you can watch a school of dolphins, follow your dhow.

Mountain Safari

Using 4WD vehicles join us on a panoramic journey into the barren interior.

We can drive to Jebal Harim, 2087M above sea level. It is the highest mountain in the region.

This tour will give you an opportunity to see the dramatic steep ramps and the scenery of Musandam’s mountains, speckled with fossils dating back several million years.

On our return trip we get down off the ramps onto wadi Khasab and drive for 15 minutes leftwards of the main unpaved road to Khawr A’ Najid coastal area.

The mountains there preserve you with a stunning view overlooking to Oman Gulf.
