"Oman Musandam Fjord Tour" Khasab by Slooper
Khasab Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 97 photos
Arranged though Oman's Khasab Travel & Tours (with an office in Dubai) we spent a very long, but delightful day, driving northeast of Dubai to enter a northern part of Oman for a special visit to the “Norway of Arabia” or "Arabian fjords." We would enjoy some swimming in the warm fjord and with a small group of other dhows, we would play with dolphins. We entered this non-contiguous portion of the Sultanate of Oman for a cruise on on old motorized dhow - the tour described by the travel company as follows:
"The Khor Sham is a sheltered, 17 km long Fjord. The water is crystal clear and calm, very inviting for snorkeling or swimming. The mountains rise out of the sea and reflect back on the water. There are almost always dolphins playing and following the boats as they cruise around the villages."
On our way to Oman from Dubai City, we passed through the smaller Emirates of Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Qaiwain and Ras Al Khaimah.
For 2 photo albums from this Arabic fjord cruise, I invite you to check out our WheelerFolk.org travel pages from our 2005 Middle East visit.
