Many species of dolphins are present off the shores of the UAE basically due to their known habitat preferences. The humid, sandy shallows of the Arabian Gulf are in strong distinction to the East Coast atmosphere, and host some species adapted for shallow water life, such as the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin. The deep underwater canyons and cliffs on the edge of the continental shelf off UAE’s east coast is where most species can be found, including deepwater cetaceans like the Risso’s dolphin.
It is possible to view dolphins in the UAE’s waters most of the year. Conditions are perfect in the UAE from late March to July, when the sea-surface is cool, the moisture and warmth in May and June can be problematic. Though, dolphin watching can be pleasing at nearly any time. Only the winter winds of north are expected to produce viewing troubles. Early mornings and evenings are usually the best times to search for cetaceans, as the sea is often soother and the light is good. They can be found at any place offshore, the greater parts of finding dolphins are somewhat near to shore, as compare to whales that are mostly found well offshore. It is promising to watch some cetaceans from the land, including both whales and dolphins. If you venture slowly out to sea by boat and wait, watch and listen for splashes then you can hear the blow of a whale from rather a distance, even before you can see it.
Mountain Trekking is another attraction that temp adventurous tourist to visit Oman to get the thrill that is one of its kind. Hajar mountain range with its uneven landscape is a great place to take pleasure in a trekking holiday; with its peak slope in the north leaning directly in to the sea. The southern part of the area has been formed from sedimentary and igneous rocks, and is a focus for geology students as well. The sight of sand hills giving a rust color territory and the calm desert landscape with its persistently shifting views is also a key appeal for the trekkers. All visitors in UAE admit it as one of the world’s most awesome sight.

Spices and many herbs are used to prepare perfumes, cosmetics, air fresheners etc. It is part of the Gulf’s region’s heritage and a mark of hospitality; festivals events like weddings, Eid and births celebrations are incomplete without burning them.
