DAY ONE (Saturday May 28th): Our trip will start Saturday morning at 3 am where we will leave Dubai in cars and head to Muscat.

Our local Omani guide will meet us there and pick us up around 9 a.m
Then we will head to Qalhat for a small stroll in the wadi and dip in the fresh water of Qalhat.

Then we will get on the cars and head for a lunch along the way (not included).

The drive will be around 2 to 3 hours until we reach a remote beach in Ras Al Hadd where we will set camp. There we will have Barbeque dinner. After dinner, we head to Ras Al Jinz Turtle Natural Reserve where you will meet a marine Guide who will escort us to the beach in Ras Al Jinz and explain the whole process of turtles egg laying, nesting and hatching and we will be guaranteed to witness this natural process with grand sized turtles. You will get to see many turtles coming over to lay eggs and might see small turtles getting hatched and going to the water. You have to use the red light only of your head lamp and no flash photography.

You may think that summer in Oman will be too hot, but as a matter of fact, in our beach Ras Al Hadd beach, it is really fresh even in the middle of summer.

Day Two: wake up at sunrise and breakfast at the beach . We leave the camp at 09:00 then head to a pier to take a boat to a remote beach where we will swim and snorkel with the turtles and might see some dolphins. Then we head to the traditional Dhow factory and have lunch along the way. Then Dubai bound.
