Snorkelling is great fun, easy to learn and an ideal way to build up confidence in the water. It is accessible to anyone – young or old – and is an enjoyable way to get the whole family involved.
For younger members of the family, snorkelling is also a great introduction to underwater sports and can be their first step towards learning to dive.
Oman with its 1700 Km coastline is renowned for its rich underwater beauty, with hundreds of safe and awe-inspiring dive sites to choose from. There are many superb dive sites around the capital area, including Cemetery Bay, Fahal Island and Daymaniyat Islands. The other dive sites are Bandar Khairan.
The sea-life is abundant with a variety of hard and soft corals present and shoals of fish. Night dives are popular and divers are often astounded by the amount of phosphorescence found in Oman’s night-time waters.
