The drive to/from Musandam was uneventful. The driver never spoke to the guests regarding the area. I found out the next day that we had driven through other emirates. Once we got on the boat, the crew was awesome. The experience was lovely.

Great fun and good service, but a lot of unnecessary driving and not much adventure. The tour isn't really to the Fjords, but to the Omani coast on the Indian Ocean.

You don't really get to see any of Oman, but it's a cool day out.

This tour was good but it could've been great. The driver picked us up on time. The drive from Dubai to the port in Dibba however was in a van. The middle seat in the back is incredibly uncomfortable and the vehicle isn't suited for travelling such long distances with an adult in that seat. Once we got to Dibba the cruise was amazing. A fantastic day out and well worth the pain getting there. All of the staff from the driver to the boat crew were friendly and polite. There could have been a little more instruction on how things operated though but we worked it out in the end. When we were taken ashore we weren't told how to contact the boat to get a ride back. We didn't realise this would be a problem until we realised we were the first of many boats to land in this spot. We also weren't told timings which meant we returned to the boat over an hour before we set off to return again so we could've had more time on the beach. Minor issues really. Plenty to drink on board. Tea, coffee, juices and water. Lunch was very ordinary and clearly catered for the predominately Indian participants. I would recommend this trip for the scenery, a day out on and in the water and the chance to get away from Dubai to a country that still retains its authenticity. This trip has sparked a desire in me to return to visit Oman.

An enjoyable day overall. Upside is seeing the landscape change from Dubai to Oman. Cruising in the dhow with an excellent buffet lunch, plenty of cold water and fruit was very pleasant. The loud American hip hop music in that serene setting was ridiculous. I asked them to turn it down after I had heard a particular track 3 times and they did oblige. We were dropped at a small beach to swim which had a very friendly dog and some goats wandering about. The snorkelling is a waste of time as the water is not clear. My daughter went on the banana ride behind the speed boat and was hurt quite badly. The driver was determined to shake everybody off and she is a very slight build. The drive to and from was uneventful but slightly too warm. I think the vehicle could be a bit more up to date.
This particular trip was a lot less expensive than some others we had looked at so you get what you pay for.

I cant give this a five mainly because there was no mention that the drive was 3 hrs to the boat from the Palm. There was also no mention that it wasnt really a cruise but more of a ride. Now I recommend it because once we got to the boat it was fun doing the activities. FYI, you likely will not see fish when snorkel so just think of it as more swim time. The banana boat was a blast though and quite possibly saved the tour. Tour probably is the wrong word, it was more like an activity. The driver doesnt talk to you during the drive to the boat, the boat crew dont talk to you during the boat ride either. They really just instruct you what is about to happen. The food was quite good though, i enjoyed that and i think everyone else did as well because everyone was sleep on my van during the return ride which was around 530pm.
