Habibi has no set itineraries, as we depend on weather and tidal conditions. Depending on the day conditions, we will use the best locations available. The skipper’s decision on locations is final, and any change of tour location is based on the safety of our guests and the best experience we can give you on any given day.

We recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings, road closures, flooding, and other natural disasters—especially during the wet season—which may cause them to miss their trip.
