What to expect

Start your day with a pick-up from your hotel in Muscat and move to Marina Bandar to board your traditional wooden dhow. These handcrafted vessels have been used to trade around the Arabian Peninsula for centuries. When you move forward you will see Oman’s Hajar Mountains and rugged coastline, where cliffs open to secluded bays and tiny fishing villages. You will pass through Muscat Yacht Club and the picturesque village of Sidab, where colorful fishing boats speckle the beach. Take photos of Cemetery Bay, home to the graves of British servicemen, and cruise into old Muscat harbor. See the cliff paintings depicting the ships and gaze at the 16th-century forts of Jalali and Mirani, both gurading over the Al Alam Palace: the residence of the Sultan of Oman. Afterwards, sail into Muttrah harbor and enjoy the views over the glittering, whitewashed Corniche set against the barren mountains. Then, as the sun sets and casts everywhere in a golden glow, drift by the Al Bustan Palace, one of Oman’s luxurious hotels. This magnificent building stands alone on a mountain-ringed bay. After two hours on the water, you will sail back to the marina and be transferred back to your hotel.
