Fishing Trip

Duration: Half Day

fishing trip

The Sultanate of Oman has established itself throughout history as a major seafaring nation in the Middle East. Since ancient times, ocean trade routes have crossed the Arabian Sea to Africa, India and Southeast Asia. Sailors historically crossed these waters on a Dhow, which is one of Oman’s most important trading symbols. These traditional wooden sailing boats have been used for centuries across the Arabian Sea, travelling from ancient ports such as Muscat and Sur. Today, the dhow is also used for trade, as well as tourism and fishing along Oman’s beautiful coastline.

Fishing is a traditional way of life in Oman, and has long been an important source of income for Omani fishermen. As tourism has developed, holiday makers have been able to get an insight into the local fishermen’s lives through fishing tours. Experience life on the open seas first hand during this exciting fishing adventure, where you can feel the sun on your face and the fresh ocean breeze as you sail out into Omani waters, which range from deep blue to turquoise.

Oman is surrounded by the Arabian Sea on the south and east, and the Gulf of Oman on the northeast. Its waters also occupy a small, isolated part of the Indian Ocean. The Tropic of Cancer passes through Oman just south of the capital Muscat, so most of the country’s waters actually lie within the tropics. These overlapping seas explain why Oman’s waters host such an abundance of rich and diverse marine life.

Oman is now one of the most exciting deep sea fishing destinations in the world. Compared to other countries, it is also a much cheaper holiday activity. Your friendly, experienced crew will take you to the best fishing spots in the area, pointing out various marine species on the way and answering any questions you may have. Oman’s waters are rich with many different fish species, including Barracuda, Black Marlin, Swordfish, Dorado, Sailfish and Yellow Fin Tuna. They are also a haven for bait fish such as sardines, mackerel, shrimps and crayfish. So, get your fishing line ready and see what you can catch on the other end!

Fishing trips can either be organized on a private basis or as ordinary fishing tours, where you be accompanied by other fishing enthusiasts. Relax and enjoy the boat ride, taking in Oman’s stunning coastline and the native wildlife on the way. You may even be able to spot spinner and common dolphins and several species of whales on your trip. This exhilarating adventure provides plenty of exciting drama and action on Oman’s open seas.
