Motor out of Muscat's port and attempt to spot some of the 21 species of whales and dolphins that have been identified off the Omani coast. Keep your eyes peeled for frolicking dolphins as your boat carves through the waves and perhaps even glimpse a blue whale, a rare sight.
With an early start you're soon leaving the city's harbor behind and heading out to the Arabian Sea, twinkling in the morning sunshine. The waters off the coast contain a diverse ecosystem with a rich variety of life. Some of the world's most endearing sea mammals are regularly spotted here.
With some luck, marvel at the spinner or bottlenose, common dolphins that often dance around the boat. Remember to cast your eyes back to shore as the idyllic Omani coastline takes on new beauty from a shifted perspective.
The sea here is also inhabited by larger creatures. At the right time of year, you might spot the majestic humpback whales and—rarer still—the magnificent blue whale. With an expert on board ready to share fascinating information about marine life, no detail goes unnoticed and you return to shore smarter than you left.
