Please note that the Grand Mosque visit is not possible on Fridays and certain public holidays. This modern architectural masterpiece, completed in 2001, seamlessly combines modern design with traditional craftsmanship. As you explore, be sure to capture the mosque's beauty, from the intricate handmade carpets to the grand chandeliers and the stunning ceiling of the main prayer room. To enter, ladies should ensure they are fully covered and have a headscarf, while men should wear trousers.
The journey continues along the picturesque waterfront Corniche, where we'll make a stop at the vibrant Muttrah Souq, a bustling and colourful marketplace filled with local treasures and handicrafts. Don't forget to haggle for some souvenirs. We'll then proceed for a photo stop at the magnificent Al Alam Palace, the official residence of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos. It is flanked by the historic 16th-century Portuguese forts, Mirani and Jalali, adding to the grandeur of the scene.

Day 3: Dolphin Watching - A Maritime Adventure
Today, we'll take you from your Muscat hotel to the Marina for an exciting escapade. Our destination? The open sea, where we'll set off on a boat in search of Dolphins and Whales. Watching these incredible marine creatures in their natural habitat is a truly exhilarating way to kickstart your day.
