I had a great time diving with Al Boom. I chose them to do my training for Advanced Open Water. I completed my tune-up/navigation dive from Jumeirah beach in Dubai and went to Fujairah for buoyancy/photgraphy/deep and wreck. The shop was fully stocked and had a sale going on so I got there early and looked around the shop to... More

The dive was ok.... we paid about 40gbp for the video which they gave us on a ship but this ship was empty so i asked for a reimboursement which they accepted to give me in June. Ever since, they have been ignoring my emails and of course, no refund has been done.

The dive site was very good (lots of fish, 2 sea turtles, lobster, lots of coral). Adrian, our dive guide was great. HE DESERVES A RAISE. Try to get him, if you can.

Weather was rough, the waves were strong and the dive wasn't great but thats not their fault. My fiance and I both got sea sick and the "Captian" of the boat, a filipino man whose name starts with an A (perhaps Adrian) was extremely unhelpful. He was lazy, unmotivated and didn't feel like doing anything. When I asked him for... More

This was my second time diving here with Al Boom. We got really good visibility for both dives, the instructors were really cool, one of our group jumped in the sea after we finished our dives and lost her glasses. Our instructor Adrian dived down and got them back, true legend. :) Thanks guys. This was our experience https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMvKwgnzbJ4
