Overview

Keep your camera poised at spinner, bottlenose and common dolphins on this Muscat cruise. As your fiberglass boat plies the waters of the Arabian Sea, search for these delightful marine mammals that often ride the surf and leap over the waves. During migration season, look for humpback whales that skim past Oman’s rugged coast. Enjoy complimentary bottled water and soda plus convenient round-trip pickup from selected Muscat hotels.
  • 2.5-hour dolphin-watching cruise from Muscat
  • Look for dolphins and enjoy views over Oman’s rugged coastline as you cruise the shimmering Arabian Sea
  • Watch for the playful spinner, bottlenose and common dolphins that frolic in the waves
  • Keep a lookout for the humpback whales often sighted in the local waters
  • Enjoy complimentary bottled water and unlimited soda during your cruise
  • Relax with a hotel pickup and drop-off from central Muscat
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 2.5-hour 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.

This was such a great tour! We were able to see a ton of dolphins on this particular afternoon -- I was in awe! The company picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off by the boat. The company offered some water and snacks which was extremely helpful. We were on a relatively small boat which was nice and felt a bit more intimate. I was thrilled to see so many dolphins in that space. I'm so glad that I booked this tour, which was a last minute decision -- I would highly recommend it to my networks!

It was awesome. We saw several pods of dolphins. Coastline of Oman also worth every penny. Very professional company.

Boat ride was fantastic, weather at its best, but no dolphins in sight unfortunately. Captain did his best to find a dolphin in the majestic sea. Will try again in next visit to Muscat.

Hundreds of dolphins seen, all doing their best to show why they are called spinner dolphins! We were then taken along the coast and shown several historical sites and places of interest. Only six of us on the boat so lots of space to move around and get into position to take photos.

The trip was nice, but only a few dolphins to be seen on the day. Still it was good to get out on the water.

The trip was very poorly organised. We called many times to confirm but no answer. We were then told that the number was incorrect and were given a new number. We just bounced around on the water for two hours with no commentary or anything and saw nothing. A waste of time and money

Saw dolphins for almost an hour!

Well organised - small, clean boat, small group of people, friendly local sailor

Was collected from hotel at exact agreed pick up time and returned safely

Really enjoyed it :-
