Unforgettable experience. Swiming with the turtles was amazing. We were luck to see 20 or more. And luck also to see whale sharks. The captains were amazing, very professional and caring. They gives us as a gift a water bottle and provide a very good snack. The sites were amazing, clear beaches to swim with all kind of fishes. I would do It again, and recommemd anyone to to it with this amazing team.

My husband and I had an unforgettable experience today on our tour! Swimming with turtles was just brilliant. The beaches and the water were so peaceful and the islands are truly beautiful. Farhad was a knowledgable, courteous and charming guide. The company are organised, professional and environmentally conscious and we wouldn’t hesitate to go back. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great day out from Muscat.

We had a gorgeous morning on the boat with expert Leah. It was so comfortable and relaxing. The two snorkelling sites were great. We thoroughly enjoyed the variety of sea life we saw. Turtles and a ray being the absolute highlight. Leah provided us with unexpected snacks and lunch and lovely water bottles which we are delighted to have as a keepsake. We will definitely take another tour with this company the next time we are in Muscat.

This was an amazing tour - snorkeling with wild turtles was just incredible! I'll remember this my whole life! It is wonderful that Captain Fahad truly cares about nature and the turtles. We even got a real metallic bottle to take home (a wonderful souvenir) to avoid the use of plastic bottles.

From booking right through to post trip communication, we were so impressed with the professionalism of this company. Captain Fahd did a fantastic job of providing an exciting day, with safety in mind and thought for the sea creatures at the same time. We were lucky enough to swim alongside whale sharks and turtles and it will certainly be a day my four year old will treasure for a long time. I cannot recommend this Muscat experience enough.
