After early pickup from your Dubai hotel, journey by climate-controlled vehicle into the Hajar Mountains that frame the border between the UAE and Oman.
Cross the border into Oman’s Musandam Peninsula and continue traveling on the road to the town of Dibba, tucked into a stunning mountain-ringed bay.
Here, settle aboard your traditional-style Omani dhow, a wooden double-decker boat with shaded and open decks. Then, drink in the scenery as you cruise along the Musandam shoreline, dubbed the “Norway of Arabia” for its fjord-like inlets, cliffs, and peaks.
Watch for dolphins and relax on deck as you pass beautiful Zighy Bay and the abandoned village of Haffa. Plus, make two stops to swim and snorkel, and refuel with a tasty onboard buffet lunch of Arabic dishes. Unlimited sodas and refreshments are available throughout.
Finally, return ashore in Dibba before your experience finishes at your Dubai hotel.
