Kayak, Snorkel, Trek, Yoga: Weekend in Kumzar


MultiSport: Snorkel and Kayak, Hike the remote village mountain of Kumzar!

The northernmost tip of the Mussandam peninsula can only be reached by boat for 3 hours on the high seas. No other dhow will take you this far, this comfortably. We have a ginormous dhow that is and very stable and will fit all of our KAYAKS on the top for us to explore the dolphin populated seas in the fjords on Friday while we motor on up to the tip.

We will also snorkel in another spot while we make our way up the coast, leaving the points where the other dhow cruises stop. We will sleep on the boat OR on the beach, and wake up at sunrise the next morning for our hike through the wadi.If you choose not to hike, you can get on the kayak againin another peninsula.

We will also have YOGA sessions with our expert Yoga teacher planned around our activities, one, while we are moving, another while we are stopped, and another at SUNRISE on Saturday.
 

Itinerary:

This is our new itinerary based on the feedback and experience from the previous groups. This will also have the effect of being able to reduce the price per person, making it more accessible for all.

You'll join carpools and leave at by 7 pm from your city. You will arrive to Khasab border and it will be empty making an easy pass of it around 11 pm. No need to get your car over the border, the bus will be waiting for you at 1030 pm on the OMAN SIDE. 

Exhausted, you will get your stuff on the boat around midnight. We will sleep on the boat on Thurdsay night, in port.

Don't worry, there is no early wake up time! The boat will start moving at 730, well before other boats leave port. But our boat will be ready to go. You will be sleeping comfortably with the hum and slight rock of the boat, until the boat reaches Kumzar around 10 am. 

Hike the challenging steep hill up over the mountain.  Or, skip the hike altogether and kayak and snorkel in another secluded and untouched bay nearby. Hiking on Friday will give us time to be more relaxed and slower on this hike as we do not have time pressure.

After our hike, we will return to our big boat, drive over to Mussandam Island and spend the night in this pristine island 30km from Iran (you can even see the lights of Iran) for our BBQ dinner on the beach before sleeping either on the boat or the beach. Sunset Yoga session on the beach.

Day 2: Sunrise Yoga. Wake up at leisure, kayak and snorkel. At 11 am, we will move back to a remote island for a snorkel session of another remote island before reaching port at 3 pm and returning back to the city.
