Muscat (Port Qaboos), Oman-port

Muscat is the capital of Oman, a sovereign country. Muscat has been important since the 6th century BC, when Persians controlled the port. It was under Portuguese domination from 1508 to 1650, and subsequently the Iranians gained control of the city. Muscat became the capital of independent Muscat and Oman in 1741- the country’s name was changed to just Oman in 1970. Muscat offers a number of exciting excursions including dolphin watching and off-road desert adventures.

    Join us for a wonderful sightseeing experience during this exclusive dhow boat cruise in the waters along Muscat.

    Dhow boats are built in the town of Sur, and crafted with traditional Omani techniques that have been passed on for centuries from generation to generation; modern features and safety aspects are then added in Muscat.

    Depart from the pier for the transfer to Marina Bander Al Rowdha, where you will board your dhow boat and embark on a private, 1.5-hour dhow cruise. The route you will be taking has been carefully mapped out along the waters of Muscat's Old Town. You will be served soft drinks and water along the way, and take in scenic vistas reflecting Oman's history, from Portuguese architecture at the Corniche to the modern wonders of the Al Alam Palace.

    Please note: The dhow cruise is subject to weather conditions. There are no restroom stops on this tour. Participants will have to walk a few minutes from the Marina entrance to the dhow boat, and negotiate six steps in order to board it.
