Itinerary

Suggested itinerary: Pick up from the port Visit to the fishing village Visit to Khasab Fort Visit to neighboring village of Qadah Drive back to the port When does my tour start? - This tour start time will be set to fit your ship's arrival/departure timings. When do I return to port after my tour/excursion? The tour is 3 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure. All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

This tour has a maximum of 22 passengers.

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air-conditioned transportation ready to commence your tour.

Khasab is a city in an exclave of Oman bordering the United Arab Emirates. It is the local capital of the Musandam peninsula and is also known as the " Norway Of Arabia" due to its extensive Fjords-like landscape and coastline. The city itself is a peaceful fishing village which overlooks the gulf of Arabia and the straits of Hurmuz, but it is also considered an important historical landmark in Oman.

Khasab was strategically founded by the Portuguese in the 17th century, as to take control over the Strait of Hormuz, which divides the country from Iran. The Portuguese built the Khasab fort for military use and as a defense against the threats coming from the Omanis. However, The Omanis were military more organised and defeated the Portuguese in 1624. The fort passed then to their hands, who firstly used the castle for military use then as a city prison. Now a museum, this fort features an exhibition about the history of the Musandam peninsula with many rooms displaying jewellery, clothes, weapons, wedding decorations and kitchen equipment. You will have the opportunity to view this on your 3 hours tour.

You will also pass by the neighbouring village of Qadah to view the fascinating prehistoric rock carvings located near the portuguese fort. In here you will find the amazing rock craving that will lead you to the art of ancient times, with the unique opportunity to discover the history behind the "petroglyphs", prehistoric rock carvings, depicting camels, ships and warriors in the village of Qadah.

At the end of the tour you will be taken back to the port in plenty of time for your ship departure.
