Sunset Dhow Cruise from Muscat
As you drift northward, admire Oman’s Hajar Mountains and rugged coastline, where cliffs open to secluded bays and tiny fishing villages. Pass Muscat Yacht Club and the picturesque hamlet of Sidab, where colorful fishing boats speckle the beach. Take photos of Cemetery Bay, home to the graves of British World War I servicemen, and keep your camera handy as you cruise into old Muscat harbor. See the cliff paintings depicting the ships that have docked here through the ages and gaze at the 16th-century forts of Jalali and Mirani, both standing guard over the Al Alam Palace: the glittering residence of the Sultan of Oman.
Next, sail into Muttrah harbor and absorb 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 most exclusive hotels. This magnificent building stands alone on a mountain-ringed bay and cries out to be captured on camera.
After two hours on the water, sail back to the marina, where your experience ends and you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Good, I would change location of where the boat stopped for the sunset. Was nice, a bit over crowed.
I was picked up from my hotel and enjoyed the tour. HOwever when speaking To others on the tour I realised that I had paid much more than people who had booked through other tour companies. Also, it was difficult to make phone confirmation 24 hours before pick up when I was still travelling. Altogether, pleasant but over priced.
This is a very good trip,well worth doing. Hotel pick up and drop off is included. Comfortable on board facilities and English speaking,very good humoured crew. The skipper will even let you take the wheel! Soft drinks,water,a few dates and nuts inc.
Lovely sunset cruise from Marina Bandar al Rowdha. Plied with coffee, dates, snacks all the way. Nice relaxing end to the day.
This trip was excellent. A very good view of Muscat from the water. Very comfortable Dow and the driver even returned us to our hotel after we had dinner at the marina. Excellent service and a very good cruise. I can highly recommend this.
We were collected on time and the trip was very pleasant. The Dhow was comfortable and the crew friendly. Plenty of soft drinks and nibbles as described in the brochure. We enjoyed the scenery and the relaxed approach. The sun set was lovely. After the sunset the trip home was quite slow.
