What you’re going to do

Take a traditional dhow out in the glistening waters to enjoy and comntemplate the spectacular views of your surroundings. Spend great times as you go back in time an imagine the fuctions these dhows once served.

As soon as you have reached your destination, we will dock the dhow to allow you to beat the heat by taking a refreshing dip into the blue waters of the island.

You will also explore the Qatari legacy on the sea that my ancestors have counted on for several generations, and even listen to some of the popular Qatari folklore of the sea.

I am an avid fan of the sea with more than decades of experience and more than 5 boats to my name. My family history is in pearl diving, so I stayed close to the sea to retain that legacy. I have taken many experience seekers on overnight trips out to sea, taken many to visit and explore natural islands around Qatar, and taken many to go out to sea for swimming, diving, and other water activities.
