From trips out to see the dolphins that play off the coast of Muscat and diving explorations of the magnificent coral, to deep sea fishing, barbecues and boat trips to secluded bays, there is something for everyone in Oman.
With the seas around Oman abundant in sea life big game fishing has really taken off and is where all the fun is. The yellow fin tuna start swimming along the coast between November and February and this is the perfect time to get that 'big catch'. Trips can last for four hours or up to eight hours depending on the enthusiast. We cannot guarantee that you will get that big catch but we can guarantee you will have a great time trying! Water and soft drinks are available on the boat.
It has been said by many of our clients that Oman has the best diving sites they have ever seen. With so many coral reefs scattered along its coast Oman offers the diving enthusiast a variety of diving opportunities. Our local agent, with their qualified Divemasters and Instructors, offer Padi recognised courses and with their local knowledge they can offer you the best locations to explore.
Dolphin and Coastal tour
Embark on a truly memorable experience. Lines are cast early morning and the boat heads out of the marina in search of the numerous pods of the spinner and bottlenose dolphins that frequent the Omani coast. With the experience of the local skipper you could be surrounded by hundreds of these magnificent specimens within minutes of leaving the marina. They like to give a show to the people watching so it is not uncommon to see them somersaulting out of the water near the boat. It also gives you an opportunity to see how the local fisherman fish today, in their small boats and with handlines, often pulling in tuna which any professional would be proud of. After this remarkable sight the skipper shows the main sights along the coast, including Al Alam Palace, Jilali and Mirani forts, the famous Al Bustan Palace hotel and the Shangri La resort before heading to a secluded bay in Bander Khayran for some snorkeling and sun bathing. These tours can be for four hours or eight hours and include water and soft drinks.
Sunset and Dinner Cruises
Imagine you are sat on the bathing platform of a 50ft luxury motor cruiser anchored off a secluded bay where you have just been snorkelling in, enjoying a nice glass of chilled white wine as the sun sets behind the mountains whilst your own private chef and assistant prepare a magnificent 3 course meal for you to enjoy. It is no longer a dream, we can make it a reality. The boat is air-conditioned with LCD TV screens, 1 x Master cabin ensuite and 2 x twin cabins with seperate bathroom. It is professionally maintained by its local captain who used to work for the Sultans Royal Yacht Squadron, so you are in good hands.

It holds a maximum of 16 passengers and can be chartered for corporate events or just for the individual to have a great platform to see the coast of Oman from.
The Al Nabba used to be a royal boat until she was replaced. She has been fully refurbished and is back to her former glory.
