Oman April 13-22, 2018: NOUKHADA FISHING CHARTER

For our trip this time, we opt to get services from Noukhada Fishing Charter Oman.  From browsing, we found the

After few correspondents with Owner Mr Ali Dashti and Noukhada Management Mr Hamad Al Roumi, , a date April 13-22, 2018 was agreed.  I also was introduced to a wonderful Captain Swabir Adi Shee of Noukhada.

7 Angler Garage crews includes myself, Eidi, Master MO, Syakri, Pak Tam, Aidil and youngest Master Love Uddin-san gathered at KLIA ~ 5pm.  Our journey starts from KLIA Friday 13th April 2018 flight QR849 Qatar Airways with duration 7h 45m to Doha, Qatar.  We reached Hamd International Airport, Doha at 11.05pm local time and have connection time of 3 hours for Flight QR1142 3.00am bound for Salalah International Airport, Salalah, Oman.  Doha's Hamad International Airport is a world class airport.  Good food and many smoking rooms :).

We landed at 6.35am in Salalah.  After a hassle free immigration and customs, we were greeted by Captain Swabir and Captain Jamil of Noukhada.  Since we arrived too early and Lulu Supermarket open at 9.00am, I just gave Capt Swabir a shopping list of food and extra groceries for him to buy at Lulu eg. breaded Chicken Drumstick, Redbull Energy drinks.  Very short list since everything else about food & drink is ready for us at Noukhada Lodge in Shuwameyah.

We took the 12 seater van for travelling to Ash Shuwaymiyyah while our baggages handle by Swabir 4x4 Toyota.  Journey of 282km to Ash Shuwaymiyyah will take ~ 3.5 hours via beautiful coastal road of Mirbat, Sadah and Hasik.  After few stops for breakfast and scenic photography, we reached Noukhada Fishing Charter Oman lodge.
