Meet the Mohammeds

This is Mohammed on the left, skipper and dhow owner, with his crewman - also called Mohammed!

Mohammed's dhow is definitely the best dhow to get onto if you ever go to Khasab in Oman, and take a full day dhow tour into Khor Ash Shamm - a fjord that would not look out of place in Norway.

You get delicious food, awesome scenery, a swim or snorkel at Telegraph Island, plus a gracious host in Mohammed. We've been out with him four times now.

While the other dhow owners play more traditional Arabic music, Mohammed cruises and sings along to Bob Marley. What an idyllic way to spend a day - but take your suntan lotion!
