Musandam, Oman Photos - Tour through the Gulf of Oman

The second day of our vacation in Musandam, Oman, we had a 4-hour tour through the Gulf of Oman. Here are some pictures.
In Shinas. Waiting for departure.

The food we were served. The first time around, the rice/chicken wasn't great, and the bread was a LOT but barely any hummus; the second time, the chicken/rice was amazing, but there was lots of hummus and hardly any bread.

Musandam is known especially for these mountains in the middle of the sea/gulf.

We've just arrived in Musandam.

Another ferry across from ours.

Our backyard. Kindly note the little river across the fence.

Our hotel pool. I swam every chance I had in here.

How the pool connects to the river

And begins day 2 in Musandam with our tour through the gulf

And dolphins decided to join us!

They swam with us for a good while!

What a marvelous sight!

We stopped here to snorkel and swim around and all.

A view of our hotel - during our return to the beginning.

Still our hotel. It's huge and gorgeous, mashaAllah.

Day three. Leaving Musandam! What a sad, sad day!

Our driver stopped by this mosque to break his fast and pray.
