Khasab – Oman

Sunday March 27th

Arrived at 8am and by 8:30am we were off on a dhow trip for a scenic cruise though some of the deepest fjords on the Musandam Peninsula.

We also stopped at Telegraph Island where we saw the ruins of a 19th century British cable base for the 1250 mile cable from India to Iran. Some guests swam off the dhow or went snorkeling – I stayed onboard.

The man who is always complaining about people being late for trips and holding up the tour…was late himself today, so late in fact that he forgot his swimmers so he went overboard in his shorts -  no names but you know who I mean Paul!!

On the way back we were raced by playful dolphins… at times there were three of them swimming alongside the boat, jumping out of the water and seeming to want to play – it was wonderful.
