Oman has some of the best scuba diving in the Gulf, with intact coral and plenty of big fish . . .
Oman is a country in southwest Asia, on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders the UAE on the northwest, Saudi Arabia on the west, and Yemen on the southwest. The coast is formed by the Arabian Sea on the south and east, and the Gulf of Oman on the northeast. A very pleasant country with friendly people.
Dolphins can be seen in their hundreds following tuna and you can also see whales and whale sharks depending on the season. There are many wrecks and opportunities for drift and other specialised dives.

When we saw varun sharma’s ‘inside luxury travel’ show on CNBC, we decided to change our upcoming plans for our brief twice yearly middle east layover to Muscat, Oman instead of Dubai… Our only reason to visit Muscat was to dive.
We did not stay at the Oman Dive Center but...

We went to Oman with a friend, especially for diving. Before going there, Chris answered my many e-mail questions very quickly and nicely.
Once there, everything was perfect, the divemaster respected all the rules, including sufficient time between dives, therefore giving us time to chill and snorkle.
Great equipement, great people,...
