The email communication was great, and we were told to show up at a dock at a certain time. Once there, it took a little bit of wandering around to find our dive boat (in that I had forgotten which dive company we were with). Other than this initial glitch, the dive was great.

Did a day of fun diving on my trip to Muscat, and Stan and Garth from Omanta were very nice. I felt safe and taken care of, the boat was packed on the day I went so it was a bit cramped, but I guess that just means business is good. Water temp was a bit colder than I expected... More

Dive shop facilities are really good although stocks had some temporary shortages. During dives, dive and boat briefs etc. staff was very safety orientated, had proper briefs and acted... More
