View the rugged coast of Muscat through the eyes of ancient mariners as you embark on a sunset dhow cruise. Your twilight trip will take you out into the Indian Ocean casting anchor at a natural cove.
You’ll be transferred from your hotel to the marina where the traditional wooden vessel awaits you. Catch the breeze in its distinctive sails and venture out into warm waters rich with sealife from dolphin to turtle. Don’t forget your camera to capture the twilight view of Muscat’s Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in silhouette. Watch the colours of the shimmering sea as you stop for refreshments including dates at a picturesque bay.
Your sunset cruise will give you a taste of why Omanis were drawn to the sea as fishermen, traders and shipbuilders. According to Middle Eastern mythology Sinbad the Sailor was born in Oman and it was from Sohar, the ancient capital and maritime port in the north, that he set sail on his seven fantastical voyages. A tale which is sure to enthral the children in your party.
