Boating Around the Musandam Khors

A dhow trip around the khors (inlets) of Musandam, flanked by dolphins, is a must and well worth the expense. Trail a fishing line from the back of the boat, and your skipper will cook your catch for lunch. So remote are some of these khors that people still have their water delivered by boat and speak a dialect almost unrecognisable to Arabic speakers from Muscat. Note that you'll need a permit (which can be arranged by pre-booking with a tour company) to enter any village in the Musandam khors.
