The trip starts in the fishing village of Quriyat. The harbor is absolutely spectacular and yet completely rural! Here a short photo stop will be made. From Quriyat proceed by the part off road dirt track and part tarmac roads to see the Bimah Sinkhole, a spectacular limestone crater that had been created many years ago by a collapsing mountain. The hole is large and filled with blue-green sea water. Then drive on to the white beaches of Finns for a photo-stop and/or a swim (1/2 hour). Drive on to Wadi Shab and Wadi Tiwi. A short halt will be made here in order to enjoy the pre-packed picnic lunch which can be savored in the serene surroundings of the beautiful Oasis. Finally drive on to Sur. In Sur visit the fishermen’s harbor and witness the fishermen in action.

Proceed on to the Dhow building yard. Dhows are traditional Omani wooden fisher boats that are even today, built by hand. Check-in to the hotel (Carapace, Sur Plaza, Sur Beach or Ras Al Hadd). After a refreshing shower and dinner assemble in the main lobby of the Carapace research center around 21:00 hrs. where the rangers will divide you into groups of 10-15 people. Proceed on a 15 min walk to the place where the green turtles nest on the calm beaches of Ras Al Jinz. The turtles can be seen late at night (21hrs to 23hrs) and then again early in the morning (about 04 am). Enjoy this natural phenomenon - an experience that is guaranteed to stay in your memory for a long time. Breakfast and check out. Drive to Wahiba Sands for a short round of Dune Bashing, lunch at a local restaurant and return to MCT via the tarmac road.
