Scuba Diving in Sparkling Waters of the Emirates

 
There is abundant tropical fish life and turtles are commonly sighted. During winter months grey reef sharks are often seen. The diving gets steadily more demanding and more varied as the coast runs northwards. From the ancient town of Dibba it is possible to reach a wealth of deeper dive sites within half an hour’s boat ride. Mountains that plunge directly into the ocean are covered in soft corals to depths of 40m and a cave system offers exciting diving for experienced and suitably qualified divers. Nurse and leopard sharks are regularly seen and whale shark sightings are not unknown during the cooler months.
Diving in the Emirates

The waters of UAE offer a range of diving and snorkelling facilities to suit all levels of experience. The reefs and spectacular wrecks along the Abu Dhabi/Dubai coasts have relatively little tidal movement and currents are few in the shallow Gulf waters. Diving on the East Coast is different with upwelling from the Indian Ocean encouraging a greater diversity of marine life. Off the coast of Khor Fakkan there are more than ten dive sites within just a few minutes boat ride from the shore. Typically some of the best sites are submerged rocks that have been colonised by soft corals.
