Fjords scenery was amazingly beautiful. Dolphins came to play with the Dhow. You can also do a bit snorkeling, if you like but not very interesting fish to see. Few ships and people, very quiet and simply beautiful. Half day for a cruise, highly recommended!

We stopped at the port for a couple of days and read on trip adviser that this was a must do trip. I fully agree. The dhows are fairly big and stable. Best place is on the top deck for the best views. The trip lasted about 4hrs. Soft drinks are supplied throughout the trip. The views of the mountains... More

You can read the other reviews to get an idea of the scenery, but few will tell you that it's wiser to wear a bathing suit underneath your clothes if you plan to swim (towels are offered on board), sandals or waterproof shoes (not your best sneakers/trainers) which you have to slip off to walk and sit on the carpet-covered...

We were very fortunate in that it was a beautiful sunny day for this trip on a Dhow. We shared with a family of four so there was lots of space. The only criticism was the guide, who spoke good English but obviously had some throat problem as he was very uncomfortable to listen to!

Great scenery albeit of a rugged nature, not much greenery. A wonderful way to spend a few hours floating along in the sunshine. We were lucky enough to see Dolphins, sharks, stingrays, loads of colourful fish and even a Falcon. Oh and some goats with excellent mountaineering skills. Drinks and fresh fruit were available on our tour and Dhow was... More

We had taken a cruise from Dubai and Khasab was one of the stops. Its a quaint little town.Two things of note: The fort and the Fjords. We took a tour with musandam tours (an excellent tour operator). We were a little late to take the dhow so they took us with a speedboat amongst the fjords (to the dhow).... More

The Fjords are a nice ride on a boat that take you through an area full of Fjords. You can see Dolphins and some sea life. We took a swim but the water is TO MURCKY to really appreciate any snorkeling. It was relaxing and sceneries where beautiful
