Sea turtles and jumping dolphins

Muscat is also known for its colourful underwater world. While snorkelling in the lovely warm waters there is a big chance you’ll spot sea turtles and large schools of tropical fish. From the water you can also enjoy stunning views of the coastline of Muscat and its pristine beaches. If you’d rather be on the water than in it, we recommend taking a dolphin cruise during which you’ll see dolphins leaping from the sea!
