Musandam (Part Three)

Thursday was our final day in Musandam, Oman. The two families packed up our tents and headed to the port to catch our dhow tour that we had reserved the previous day. We got there in plenty of time only to realize that we inadvertently booked the full-day tour. We had just missed the half-day tour boat but the tour company kindly offered to take us in a motor boat to try to catch the boat we had just missed.
That worked out well for us because not only did we get a slow cruise thought the fjords for some dolphin watching, we got to take a speed-boat there. Just as we got to the boat we saw some dolphins swimming in our wake.
After we switched to the more traditional dhow, we were taken on a slow cruise. We reached a point where we stopped and could do some snorkeling. There wasn't really that much wildlife to see, but it was nice to go for a swim.
We even saw a group of kayaks on a tour of the canyon.
Once we got back we exchanged contact details and said our goodbyes to our camping buddies. From there, the rest of the trip was farily uneventful. Now that we know we can reach the border in three hours, going to Musandam seems like something that we could do over a long weekend; just not when everyone else has off of work.


  1. The tour company we booked the Dhow tour with was "Musandam Sea Adventure Travel & Tourism." They offer full-day and half-day tours. When we accidentally booked a full-day tour, the charge was 500 dirhams for two adults and one child (our 5-year-old daughter was free). The half-day charge was 375 dirhams.
