For the smooth sailing of your adventure, we need a copy of your passport and visa page at least one week before the trip date. Keep in mind that on the day of the trip, your original passport is the key to crossing the border.
Tourists, we've got you covered too! Passport copies are a must, submitted three days before the trip. And don't forget to bring the original passport on the day of the tour to make those border crossings a breeze.
Good news for our tiny travelers! Children below 3 years old get to join the Musandam Dibba Tour for free. However, they still need the same documents as the adults for permit processing.
Since the entire tour of Musandam is completely an outdoor experience, we would suggest you visit this place during the winter season in the Middle east. Ideally, the right time to visit Musandam is between the months of October and March since these are the winter months in this part of the world. Between April and September, you will find the weather to be quite hot. The water bodies will be warm and not comfortable enough for diving. In January and February, Musandam gets a bout of showers which makes the place the two coolest months to visit Oman. However, if you are affable to warm weather and like to travel to places when they are less crowded, then March would be the ideal time to visit Musandam. You will also find cheaper deals on hotels during the month of March.
We sent a message to this tour company at the last moment to check if there is a half-day private dhow cruise tour available in the Oman Fjords. Their representative was fast with his response & he accommodated us immediately! When we came at the cruise terminal, he was there to even receive us.
Everything during the tour was pretty smooth! I loved the views, and the tour guide who was with us throughout the exploration was very supportive. The views of the tall mountains were spectacular. Our highlight of this trip was honestly the dolphin spottings.
Aside from the wonderful tour experience that I had, I loved how friendly and caring their staff was towards us. Their tour guide was also quite knowledgeable about this area. I would highly recommend this company for booking your Musandam khasab and Musandam Dibba tours.
