Boat Rides

Boating in Al Sawadi

Although there is no jetty or harbour as such, the point at which the two beaches join has become an ad hoc launching point for boat rides organised by local fishermen. Prices are variable, but it costs around OR20 to charter a boat (with driver) for as long as it takes to amble around the islands for a snorkel.

Boats can hold a maximum of five passengers. Offers to take you to the Damaniyat Islands, however, should be treated with caution as boats seldom come with life vests.
