Arrive at Al Mouj marina at 9am, where you will be met by one of our team for a short introduction and safety briefing. You will leave the marina at 9.30am, beginning a leisurely 3-hour sail to the Daymaniyat Islands nature reserve. Arriving at around midday you will have plenty of time to swim, snorkel and explore the stunning set of islands and its abundance of marine life. In the evening you will anchor for the night in one of the many secluded bays and relax underneath the clear night sky, before enjoying a delicious 3-course meal onboard or a BBQ dinner on the beach.
Departing the Daymaniyat islands after breakfast, you will sail further along the coastline towards the capital, Muscat, with a short break for lunch at Al Fahal Island along the way. This fossil limestone formation is a great place to anchor and snorkel. The afternoon will feature a sail past the Corniche at Muttrah, the Royal Palace and Cemetery Bay. Situated just along the coast from Port Sultan Qaboos, Bandar Jissah bay is wonderfully secluded and features rocks at the foot of the cliffs that are great for exploring when the tide is out. We will berth here overnight and enjoy a buffet dinner at the world famous Shangri La resort.
Enjoy breakfast on board before sailing south towards Bander Al Khayran. This stunning fjord boasts stunning coral reefs, which naturally attract a host of marine life. Anchor in your choice of one of the many coves and beaches and explore the area’s inlets by dinghy or paddleboard. Those who are feeling adventurous can step ashore to climb the rocky terrain and take in the breathtaking views. The evening in Bander Al Khayran offers an excellent opportunity to enjoy a beach BBQ in breathtaking surroundings.
Wake up to the most amazing sunrise, as you take breakfast on board the yacht. Relax and enjoy the view of the unspoilt beaches and terrain as you sail an hour North to reach the Muscat Hills Resort. One of the newest beach resorts, Muscat Hills Resort is home to a swimming pool, restaurants, shisha and bar facilities, alongside the watersports and dive facilities, which will be made available. After a day of activities or relaxing on the beach, the yacht will anchor just outside the bay for you to enjoy the clear view of the starry sky, and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.
Leave your anchorage just after breakfast, relax onboard and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the old town of Muttrah, whilst making your way back to Al Mouj Marina. If you are lucky you may even get to spot the dolphins as you cruise. The yacht will arrive back at the marina around 12pm for you to disembark at your leisure.
