Khasab City Tour
Glimpse of Omani History

The current form of the castle is rebuilt in the late 20th century by the Omanis. Restored Portuguese fort, building itself is interesting. Best part is that there are several rooms which give good information and insight into local crafts, way of life, history, even geology, includes a small museum. Afterwards we move to the neighboring village of Qadah to view the petroglyphs – prehistoric rock carvings – depicting camels, ships and warriors. The Bukha Fort is end of the tour; you’ll take an exquisite scenic drive through the peninsula’s rugged coastal road, towards the seaside town of Bukha. This place is home to another sea-facing fort.

What Client Say
Great Day to See Dolphins
“We booked this by email has we were arriving on a cruise. we were met with a name board at the port and everything worked excellent. Water, Tea, Coffee and soft drinks along with snacks and fruit were freely available. The Dhows were comfortable and staff friendly. we set off and very shortly we slowed in a sheltered bay and within minutes we were surrounded by a pod of around 15 dolphins. we stayed here for approx 20 mins and then moved off through the fjord.to a small Island called Telegraph island. it’s name because the British 1st laid telegraph lines from here to Iraq and India. here the dhow was anchored and we could swim or snorkel. Towels were supplied and although the place to change was just the engine room the staff made sure of privacy.we then headed back with another viewing of dolphins on route back to port.”
Great Trip from Dubai
“It’s pretty well organized, with several other companies all doing the same trip (we saw many dhows on the water). Nice relaxing day on the boat, with good views, decent food, etc. Very glad we did it, and we did get to see several dolphins, which was a bonus. It was pretty cold, so we didn’t snorkel, but plenty of people did. From what we could tell, the coral and sealife wasn’t really great compared to other places we’ve snorkeled. The only thing I’d caution – we stayed on the west side of Dubai (around the Marina), which meant we were both the first pickup and last drop off. Not much you can do about that, but it ended up being 8 hours in the car, and only 6 on the boat. Still probably worth it, but we were jealous of the folks who spent 90 minutes less in that van than us, simply because they stayed further east.”
Half Day Dhow Tour - Plenty of Dolphins and Good Service
We did a half day dhow tour in the fjords. It was a nice size group (some 10 people). Good service, including soft drinks and fresh fruit. Plenty of dolphins in sight as close as 1 foot from the boat. We enjoyed it thoroughly and recommend Dolphin Khasab Tours.
