We are pleased to announce that we are now working with SeaOman who run the Oman Sail dive centre at the Millennium Resort Mussanah Hotel, Muscat. The dive centre offers PADI courses, as well as boat diving, allowing divers to discover the many spectacular and unspoiled dive sites of the Daymaniyat Islands.
Muscat is a great base from which to explore Oman and offers a variety of diving opportunities both out of the city itself, and from the resorts which are located further down the coast to the south of the capital. The diving here is characteristic of Omani waters: plankton-rich, which attracts large fish stocks and pelagics, but means visibility is usually around 10m. Stunning coral-covered walls and a general lack of current means plenty of time to spot marine life including lots of turtles, rays, various shark species and the occasional whale shark.
Oman Sail dive centre offers boat diving to a range of dive sites. The proximity of the centre to the famous sites at the Daymaniyat Islands, make this an ideal base for exploring these sites. The Damaniyat Islands’ large unspoiled reefs host a wealth of sea life unparalleled in the region. On average, the exotic waters around Oman offer a wonderful visibility of 20 to 30 metres.
Shallow coral reefs teem with around 1,300 - 1,500 different species; leatherback sea turtles paddle just beneath the surface, and you may even be lucky enough to observe the magnificent whale shark. Considered to be ‘the’ Damaniyat Islands dive specialists, SeaOman's PADI certified instructors and dive masters have in-depth knowledge of each one of its 29 dive sites, ensuring that each trip into Oman’s underwater paradise feels like the adventure of a lifetime.
Day boats depart around 9.00am and return at around 3.00pm with travelling time to the Daymaniyat Islands around 1 hour. FREE nitrox is available.
