Full description

Discover one of the jewels of Oman, the Dimaniyat Islands, on a boat tour from Muscat. Snorkel in a beautiful, UNESCO-protected nature reserve and admire the abundant sea life.

Begin your day with pickup anywhere in Muscat before the Al Seeb area and transfer to the marina for the 70-kilometer (43.5-mile) journey northwest to the Dimaniyat Islands. On board, enjoy the scenic views of Muscat and the coastline, as well as unlimited soft drinks and water.

Once at the Dimaniyat Islands, explore the nature reserve and stop in two different places for snorkelling. Keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles, corals, and, if you’re lucky, sharks, eels, and dolphins. Have the chance to find Nemos (clownfish) and see other different species of coloured fish, too.
