Our Expert Says
We had chosen a tour on a traditional dhow boat, where you take off your shoes on entry and lounge in comfort on carpets and cushions. Our two young Omani sailors took us through spectacular scenery before they slowed the dhow and started looking over the side...dolphins! They must have kept us company for almost ten minutes, so plenty of pictures were snapped. This was THE best moment of a fabulous holiday, no contest. 
We stopped further on to let everyone have the chance to have a swim and snorkel, with towels and after-swim refreshments provided. On our way back, our Flipper friends returned for a brief encore. Show-offs!

Handy tip - take your swimming gear if you go on this trip! But there's a bit of walking/getting on and off boats, so is not recommended for anyone with limited mobility.
