Dolphin Watching

A few local companies offer dolphin-watching tours, which take travelers on short morning trips out into the sea, where wild dolphins roam free and sometimes present themselves to curious visitors. Some companies also offer fishing and/or snorkeling tours. Sidab Sea Tours P.O. Box 131, PC 114

Do & See

Muscat's geographical positioning in close proximity to the sea, desert and mountains provides visitors with an endless list of possible activities. With natural beauty, beach resorts, an emerging cultural scene (facilitated much by the recently constructed Royal Opera House) and historical relics, the nation's capital is guaranteed to keep travelers busy both on land (mosques, forts and souqs) and at sea (dolphin-watching tours and snorkeling, to name a few).
