Mystical Dhow Cruise


Hand made wooden dhows still made today by local craftsmen bear testament to Oman's tradition as a great seafaring nation.

They used to plough the sea routes between Oman, Iran, the Arab Emirates, India and other neighboring countries laden with exotic goods and merchandise.

Sinbad the Sailor sailed in them from the coastal town of Sur where they are still being built today.

A short drive away from the port of Mina Qaboos will bring you to the Marina where dhows are moored.

Board your dhow for two hours cruise along Oman's coast for a unique experience. Seated on the upper open air deck enjoy the views and the Omani sun while sipping refreshments and sampling Arabic sweets served by waiters clad in traditional Omani costumes
