About
Head out to sea in search of playful dolphins on this 2.5-hour cruise from Muscat! Cruise by comfortable fiberglass boat, and keep a look out for the fun-loving spinner, bottlenose and common dolphins that frequent the Arabian Sea against the backdrop of Oman’s mountainous coast. Watch as these playful marine mammals skim and dive in the waves, often riding the surf around your boat and leaping high in the air. If you’re lucky, you may also spot humpback whales too! Unlimited bottled water and sodas are provided on board during your cruise.

Cancellation policy
  • For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
What to expect
  • Following pickup from your hotel in central Muscat, you’re transferred to Marina Bandar Al-Rowdha. Here, take a seat aboard a fiberglass vessel designed to provide panoramic views over the shimmering Arabian Sea.  Although sightings aren’t guaranteed, your morning dolphin-watching quest offers a good chance to observe these playful marine mammals, which often frolic alongside the boat. Glide past the mountainous coastline of Oman and search the waters for spinner, bottlenose and common dolphins that frequently ride the surf around the bow and leap from the water to spin several feet into the air! Hear commentary about the dolphins’ feeding habits and about other marine life, including humpback whales and even rare false killer whales that thrive in the pristine waters (depending on the season; best between October and May). After your dolphin cruise, you'll head back to the marina for a convenient transfer to your hotel.

Was a nice excursion. Unfortunately didn’t see dolphins. Although the captain took us for a tour round the different things to see. We did see many tropical fish. We were told seeing dolphins is not guaranteed so wasn’t too disappointed. Overall really good trip.

We completely understand that seeing dolphins is not guaranteed; wildlife don’t always oblige. However, no effort was made to provide any commentary whatsoever during the trip. Zero guiding. Zero pointing out locations. No communication at all after captain Jasim was introduced. Blasting along straight into the gulf with the wind hitting us wasn’t very enjoyable and we noticed 5 of the 14 on our boat napping so we weren’t alone in our relative boredom. Not worthwhile. At these prices provide some guiding or don’t bother.

Great morning out. Saw spinner dolphins swimming about around us and jumping out the water. Fantastic experience! On the way back to the marina saw some amazing rocky coastline too. Don’t forget to bring sun block, hat and glasses and plenty of water. It’s hot out there and the sun is very powerful!
