Khasab ferry port in Oman connects you with Shinas in Oman with a choice of up to 2 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Khasab to Shinas crossing is from 3 hours and the crossing is operated by National Ferries Company.
Found right on the northern coast of Oman, Khasab Port is located around 300 miles away from the capital city of Oman. The fjord-like craggy inlets and desolate mountains have provoked Khasab to be dubbed the ‘Norway of Arabia’ although the rugged coastline and warm climate provide more of a middle eastern touch. For many years the port was the central point for transport; the city was isolated from the rest of the region due to its distance from the other cities and the lack of infrastructure for cars and trains. Recently, however, the city has realised the necessity to make itself more accessible, slowly becoming more tourism focused.
The city still holds strong religious traditions, so the restaurants and cafes around the port area will only serve authentic local cuisine and will usually only be occupied my single men. After the hectic lifestyle belonging to Muscat and Dubai, Khasab offers the opportunity for a peaceful break around the shoreline. The port only offers ferry routes to other ports around Oman, including crossings to Muscat, Shinas and Dibba. The sailings are fairly infrequent and can vary from season to season, so it is advisable to check for live updates.
