The scuba diving and snorkeling are great - but the best part is that you actually depart from the Le Meridien Hotel if you are a guest. Just wake up, have breakfast and walk to the beach where Al Boom will be waiting for you to take you on an excursion. I highly suggest booking a room at the Le... More

First thing that blew my mind was we needed to pre-pay to ensure a spot, never had to do this with any other dive centre in UAE or Oman. And after you provide the credit card details, they don't pre-authorize, but charge your card! We had the dive master Paul. He was stressing hard in the beginning when we got... More

The dive master is there to look after your safety and depending on the sea conditions and visibility he will have to implement different procedures in order to carry out a safe dive and because it is...

The Al Boom team all did us proud when my children and I undertook a PADI open water course. They were all extremely patient especially with my daughter who, as a child, obviously needed a little bit more "hand holding". All the team were good, but I would like to single out Chris, one of the trainers who really went... More

Was a bit of a last minute.com type booking, which was made through the sales rep who visited us, whilst sunbathing in The Royal Meridian Hotel Beach & Spa Hotel. To be honest, I had a open mind as to what to expect, as through much experience of these type holiday bookings, I was a little precocious as to what... More

I did the final dive for my Open Water certification in Fujairah and it was a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Transport was arranged by Al Boom, and all the formalities like picking up the equipment were taken care of fast and we were on board of the boat heading towards the dive site very quickly. The dive sites weren't spectacular,... More

I am not a very confident diver and I have made them aware of this in advance. The email communication wasn't that great-I asked about the option of having a private instructor and they didn’t even react to that. They simply sent me standard forms to fill in. Not the customer service you would expect from a dive centre attached... More

After two cancellations due to weather it is important to note that of you are going on a holiday to Fujairah anyhow, thats OK, but if travelling from Dubai, the late decision timing of go no-go advice by Al Boom is a real issue. First time it was allegedly the CoastGuard who prevented boats going out. (Moderate breeze but flat... More

Honey at Al Boom Diving did an outstanding job of coordinating, follow-up, & register me for the shark dive at Dubai Mall. Dive in aquarium was incredible. Lots of sharks & large sea creatures. Totally different diving than open water. Not cheap, but very well worth it. Highly recommended.
