Details of Dhow Cruises
Joanne, who manages the bookings, gives these details about the cruises:

Minimum 10 people, maximum 20 people.

7-11 am
12-4 pm
5-9 pm

Regular dhow cruises go for approximately four hours.

There is flexibility but a basic cruise would explore the coast from the Fujairah Corniche to Khor Fakkan, Dibba and back to the Fujairah International Marine Club Marina.

+ Drinks are included (water, juice, coffee, and tea).
+ TV and stereo inside.
+ One bathroom onboard and small kitchen. You can bring your own food.

The dhow cruise is a great idea for birthday parties, work parties, fishing trips or occasions of any type. Cruises can be tailored according to your specific needs.

Hi there,

I have to comment on the Barracuda Diving Centre. We booked with them trip at 4 pm and their boat came 4.30 pm, not fueled up and with no equipment on board. We were really disappointed and wanted to cancel the trip. The company does not bother to refund the trip by not providing any service after we canceled it due to all these serious defects.
Just a warning for people about unreliable services of Barracuda
