Shared “Fun In The Musandam” Dhow Cruise
Board Sheesa’s double deck dhow at 11:45 at Dibba Oman port - you may choose to sit back on the traditional Arabic cushions or head up to the top deck to laze on a sun bed. Enjoy juice or traditional Arabic tea as we depart and meander north along the coast. At first you will observe the modern buildings of Dibba Bayaa’s fishing village dotted along the white sandy beach, then slowly civilization will fade away into the distance and you will start to get a sense that your heading into an ancient world, far removed from the bustling city. Rugged stark mountains plunge deep into the sea, fisherman speed by with their daily catch and birds circle ahead hunting for fish.
During the cruise we will anchor in a picturesque location for you to enjoy swimming, beach combing, relaxing and snorkelling amongst the fish life and coral. We’ll serve you a delicious buffet lunch for you to enjoy amongst this stunning peaceful scenery.
As we head back towards civilization the captain will head out to his favourite fishing location and invite you to try your luck at traditional hand-line fishing.
We’ll return to Dibba port between 17:00 – 17:30 - if you have time, the fish market will be in full swing and it is well worth a visit before you leave the port.
Included in this cruise is a tasty buffet lunch, tea and biscuits, water, juice and fresh fruit selection, as well as complimentary use of snorkeling equipment, fishing hand-lines and towels.

Private Speedboat Charters
If you don’t have time for an overnight dhow cruise but want to explore the more remote areas of the Musandam Peninsula not accessible on a day dhow cruise, then a speedboat charter is the perfect choice for you! On a speedboat charter, you’ll encounter stunning remote scenery and if snorkelling is for you, you’ll be blown away by the beautiful coral reefs and variety of marine life in the far-north of the peninsula.
There is also amazing fishing to be enjoyed in these isolated areas and you are more than likely to see dolphins at play, they’re residents in some of the secluded bays!
Looking for a private diving trip? We also offer this option and have some unique dive sites just waiting for you to explore.
