Oman has some excellent and - relatively - unspoilt diving along long stretches of its coastline, and there are sure to be new dive sites discovered in the coming years.
Oman offers a genuine alternative to the often overcrowded waters of the Red Sea and is just as easily accessible. The visibility may not be as good but the fish life and the fact that there is no-one for miles around more than makes up for it. There are several top quality hotels and if you if you want something really special, what about joining one of our private, tailor-made desert and diving safaris?
From Muscat, the best diving is around the Daymaniyat Islands, just to the west of the capital. The islands are uninhabited, with a bird sanctuary and sea waters surrounding the islands, they are rich in sea life ranging from dolphins to turtles.
