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. 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 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
