Liveaboard Diving Oman

Divers are spoilt for choice in Oman, with liveaboards plying two main destinations: the Hallaniyat Islands and the Daymaniyat Islands.

While the Daymaniyat Islands can be accessed on a day trip from Muscat, to fully immerse yourself (sorry) into the surrounding waters we recommend exploring this part of Oman by liveaboard. Some of the key highlights include the aptly named Aquarium, where fish gather in their thousands alongside turtles, leopard sharks, rays and even, if you're very lucky, whale sharks; Three Sisters for its beautiful array of soft corals and Garden of Eden, which features a fascinating topography of giant blocks against delicate citrus-coloured soft corals.

Located off the south eastern coast of Salalah, the Hallaniyat Islands are a relatively new destination for liveaboard divers, wherein lies the charm. Cruise the archipelago, diving in a fish soup of reef species alongside honeycomb moray eels, dragon morays, giant groupers, sea turtles and - if you visit between January and March - humpback whales. All without another soul in sight.

While both regions can be covered in-depth individually, there is also the option when liveaboard diving in Oman to cover both destinations which, combined with diving in the Musandam Peninsula, completes the full spectrum of experiences.
