hiring taxi for a day in Fujairah

by globetrotter1996 Online Now Nov 23, 2011 at 7:53 PM

Is it easy and cheap to hire a taxi for 5h in Fujairah? We are planning to do a loop from Fujairah port to Dibba and then to oldest mosque and back.
Is it worth snorkeling at Snoopy Island? I was told that oil spill in that area recently.
Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hi from Dubai :-)

    I'm not sure about your question about taxi hire in Fujeirah.

    With regards to Oil "spills" around Snoopy Island, this happens frequently and it's not a "spill": it's irresponsible oil tanker captains washing-out their empty tanks offshore when passing Fujeirah. This is illegal and damaging to the environment, but it happens quite often. I've been to Snoopy Island various times and it's basically a question of luck and timing whether there's oil in the water or not...

    TIP: if you do get oil on your feet, shoes, hair, skin, etc. the best way to remove it is with plain cooking/vegetable oil.
