OMAN Liveaboards holidays

Al Marsa Dhow

LUXURY LIVEABOARD HOLIDAYS TO OMAN

Just 80 miles from Dubai on a modern highway is Oman’s little-known Musandam Peninsula – an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Dramatic vertical cliffs in meandering bays plunge into the azure seas below, giving Musandam the affectionate nickname, ‘the fjords of the Gulf’. Below water the drama continues with dynamic underwater topography and an incredible array of exotic marine species.

Deep waters and cool upwelling water provide a rich plankton soup, making the coral gardens and drops-offs a rich feeding ground attracting a huge variety of marine life; whale shark, sun fish, pilot whales, lobsters, hawksbill, green turtles, huge schools of snapper, barracuda and jacks. Critters galore are also in abundance including nudibranchs, seahorses, mantis shrimp, cuttlefish and frogfish making Musandam a macro-photographer’s delight.

The milky visibility is due purely to the rich plankton, without which Oman’s incredible marine biodiversity wouldn’t be as rich nor as pleasurable.

 

Al Marsa Musandam operates several purpose-built liveaboards. All were commissioned with the genuine looks of a traditional Dhow, yet each one is a fully equipped yacht with modern facilities. They include electronic navigation, air-conditioned cabins and saloon, home theatre, spacious sundecks, deck bar, diving platform, kayaks and full catering facilities. All are accompanied by a speedboat. Snorkelling options are truly excellent.
