Feature by Ahmad Al-Rubaie MUSCAT, Jan 30 (KUNA) -- The Geographic location of the Sultanate of Oman has been always of great importance with overlooking three shores including the Arabian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean. Geographical diversity helped to create a marine life with many food chains needed by marine organisms including mammals, especially dolphins. Omani coastlines, which extend for more than 3,165 kilometers, attract more than 20 species of whales and dolphins, which has contributed to the revitalization of tourism traffic on coastal areas. Lately, tourism companies started to provide tours to discover the sights of Muscat along the coastline, starting from Bandr Al-Rawdha anchorage in the Omani capital The tours, whether private or public, include some site seeing for the most well known castles of Oman like Al Jalali, Al-Mirani, and Qasr AlAlam, in addition to dolphins shows, swimming, diving and water games. In this regard, Kuwait News Agency interviewed Salem Al-Medelwie, Owner of a tourism company, who said tourists can see the blue whale, the largest creature on earth, and also can see the spinner whale, most common species of Whales living in the waters near Muscat, he added.(end) ahr.nhq
