Iran’s IRNA news quotes director general for Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization in Qeshm Free Zone Abdol Javad Kamali saying that the first Iranian travelers departed Qeshm Island for Khasab Port in Oman by cruise ship on Saturday.
Memorandum of Understanding to launch shipping line between Qeshm Island and Khasab Port in Oman was signed in February 2016 in order to boost trade and tourism.
Oman is 60 kilometers south of Qeshm Island and the ferry service takes 80 minutes to cruise.
The first 66 Omani tourists used the ferry service to come to Qeshm Island on Thursday, Kamali said.
