Agreed by email many times before arriving in Dubai that we would need picking up from our hotel, assured it would be no problem, booked a trip and then sat around as they failed to pick us up.

Before my trip to UAE I heard that Al Boom is the best diving center in the area. I hope that is not true, as I was not impressed. Here is why: -No pickup service was offered even after I asked for it via email when I booked my trips. I took my equipment to the Al Wasl road center... More

Almost completed my PADI openwater here, just one more session to go- Super excited. Good dive shop and Friendly front and back office staff. However, some of the dive instructors need to be a bit more patient with some of the divers who take a bit more time to get into the groove. Also, it would be great if Al... More

My very first dive with Al Boom was in 2006 and when I returned to UAE full time, I did not consider diving with any other company. We've had a few interesting dive masters over the years, but it seems they've tightened up their crew. Just dove this weekend and had a fantastic experience. I've made the mistake of diving... More

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.
