Full description
Your full-day excursion to Dibba begins with a pick-up at your hotel and continues with a drive along the new highway as you take in the imposing Hajar Mountain, beautiful golden sands, and Dibba Bay, on the way to the fishing harbor.

At 10:00, depending on the traffic at the border, you’ll head out on a cruise on board a traditional Arabian dhow, enjoying Arabic tea and coffee as welcome drinks. The double-decker dhow features traditional Omani interiors including rugs and pillows for your comfort.

Enjoy your time lazing and sunbathing and admiring the beauty of the salty white mountains. You’ll pass by naturally carved caves, Haffa beaches, and Ziggy Bay.

Stop to snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean before enjoying a lunch with the real taste of Arabia. Refreshments include soft drinks, mineral water, and fruits, available throughout the cruise.

After lunch you’ll have more time for swimming, snorkeling, or relaxing and admiring the amazing landscapes. There’s a possibility that you’ll see dolphins during the cruise!

Between 15:30 and 16:30 you’ll head back to the harbor, depending on the sea conditions, and afterwards you'll be transferred back to your hotel.

A bit of a long comfortable charter style bus ride to the Omani coast. For me, that was normal, but for those not used to road trips, be aware of it. Beautiful mountainous scenery. Beautiful peaceful boat ride. Very interesting and lovely sea cave we took a small (fast) boat ride to. Snorkeling and swimming near the cliffs. Delicious lunch. Kind, attentive, and helpful staff.

The pick up from our hotel in Dubai worked perfectly. During the trip you could see the beautiful landscape of the rest of the Emirates. The boat trip was our highlight because the team was extremely attentive, the food was delicious and of course the whole trip was a great experience. We could swim, snorkel or even take a small boat to the beach during the break. We also have a look at the cave. All in all, we can recommend the trip. Far from the hustle and bustle of the city in Dubai, we could just relax.
