Sailing in Kuwait bay

Sailing in Kuwait bay

Kuwait Panorama from sea
Another fantastic Friday by the beach! Me along with my other three friends, (ManojSandeepKiran) hired a boat to travel through the Kuwait bay. It was an amazing 5-hour trip back and forth. The journey started from Sharq port bay at 3:30 AM. The climate was little windy creating  majestic waves that will definitely catch anyone's attention.

It was a bumpy ride for us, but we still decided to go ahead as this trip has been planned for weeks and apparently it always gets cancelled due to the weather (yes, i'm talking about the sand storms who loves visiting Kuwait mostly in weekends.)

Out from the city....

First fishing spot

The trip was aimed in two subjects: 1. Photography (of course!) and 2. Fishing

However, apart from the above, this sea ride had given us other different experiences that we never had before! It was an amazing day for everyone and it is indeed a very fulfilling trip.
After an hour of ride through the waves, the boat was anchored for fishing. Unluckily, i guess the fishes on this part of the sea are smart enough to escape our baits :P. Eventually, we end up using half of our baits wasted (not a single fish was caught!).  

Finally we left the area, decided to go further and had a chance to see an island named Umm al Namil, (location Coordinate) located near Doha-Kuwait. The group decided to visit the island and dock our boat in the closest possible location. (Special thanks to our boat guy! He is really a cool guy and very friendly.) We then started walking on the Island shore while sharing our stories and thoughts about other places we have visited in Kuwait.

We were informed earlier that on a very low tide day, an access to this island is possible (located opposite the Doha Power plant), by walking or through a modified jeep. We originally planned visiting the Island through that passage, but we end up going by a sea ride and went in the opposite way.  

The island will be a good place to build and create a tourists spot or an amusement park, changing its current state right now which is comparable to a scrap yard. We left the island with a good hope that the government will do something in the future to promote and develop this area as one of the must-visit place in Kuwait.

We went back to the same fishing spot again, and this time we caught some fishes for our lunch! (We are smarter than them now :P )
