Description

After you will board your traditional Omani dhow, the cruise will take you towards Musandam's longest and most spectacular fjord, which is often referred to as “Norway of Arabia”. Here calm, turquoise waters contrast with the creamy white limestone cliffs. Along the way you will pass small fishing villages. Dolphin are often spotted swimming alongside the dhows while you will be cruising inside the fjords. The dhow will then cruise to The Telegraph Island, here the British laid the first telegraph cable in 1864, it ran from India to Basra, Iraq and the island was manned for some 5 years. The dhow will anchor in the vicinity of Telegraph Island, allowing you to take a swim or just sit back and enjoy the place while admiring breathtaking views of mountains rising in the distance to over 2,000 feet. You will then leave the anchorage and conclude this wonderful experience with a leisurely cruise back to the pier.
