In company with about 8 others we enjoyed the beautiful views, the birds, the sunset and the delicious "bitings" offered to us by the very happy and welcoming crew - not to mention the exotic cocktails! A really lovely experience.

My husband and I had a lovely, unique evening sailing on a dhow on Mida Creek. The service was very good, the evening snacks varied and ample. It was a different experience and one we would recommend most highly.
