Diving

You can Dive in Oman all year around. Not only is there some good diving but you very often see Dolphins on the way to the Dive sites and the cruise along the coast is always spectacular. Of course the best diving is in the Damaniyat islands and we have now teamed up with our Diving partners to offer a two day trip to the Damaniyats with 5 dives and an overnight camp

Description

DIVING WITH NOMADS

Although the best diving is undoubtedly  the Damaniyat Islands there are the some very good Dive sites which are much closer to Muscat and thus not so weather dependant.

So if you have booked for the Damaniyats  and the weather blows up it is often possible to still dive at Fahal Island or Dive sites around Bandar Kyran

The dive centre is at the Marina Bandar Al Rhowda is open daily from 0800 hrs to 1700 hrs

Note We do not recommend live aboard Dive boats as there are very few sheltered anchorage spots so it can be uncomfortable

DIVING THE DAMANIYAT ISLANDS

 Note a diving adventure to the Damaniyats is weather dependent so please try to allow flexibility with your schedule

We will try and organise at least 2 trips to the Damaniyats a week usually at the weekend Friday & Saturday. But we must have at least 6 divers on board 

Meeting time is at 0730 hrs at the dive centre after 3 dives we will return around 1700 hrs

 

OTHER DIVE LOCATIONS

 For Dives other than the Damaniyats we normally do two Dives a day from 0830 hrs to 1400 hrs

Other Dive Spots are around Fahal Island which is clearly visible from Muscat and around Bander Kyran which is south of Muscat

Also near Bander Kyran there is a nice wreck called the Al Munassir which lies at 30 meters. This is an Old Mine Sweeper which was sunk deliberately to attract shoals of fish foe us divers to enjoy
