Hey maneke! We are from

Hey maneke!
We are from Brussels in Iran going to Nepal through India ;-)
We gonna go to UAE by ferry to get a flight from Sharjeh to Goa because we could find any information about ferry to India.
We heard about ferry from Oman to India when we were in Tabriz, but we think it's more a fantasy than reality... unfortunately!
The guy who told about this is from the tourist information center in Tabriz (I send you his email & phone by private).

(Hey small world! We met Geoffroy and Elodie in Turkey and again in Iran.)
We were looking for a boat from Oman to India too. Another Warmshowers member told us of a Canadian couple who cycled the world and used freighters instead of planes. They used this company:

However, when we contacted the company, we were told "embarkations/disembarkations in India are not possible due to the local authorities who are not cooperating with shipping companies."
The company does have some routes to other countries in the far east, but it is not cheap. We were quoted prices like 85-110 euros per person per day.
Hope some of this is helpful.
