I've dived Daymaniyat Islands several times but the most enjoyable time was with Omanta. The dive guides and the boat captain were all so chilled and professional. They have an advantage with their proximity to the Daymaniyat islands. Their rates are also reasonable. I will definitely dive with Omanta again anywhere in Oman. I only hope that they facilitate the... More

This is my third trip to Muscat, Oman. I always go to dive there and I have always used Omanta as dive operator. They are friendly, professional and well priced New boats, nice crew, and good food. Worth the 5 Star ranking

Always great diving with Nasser. Try to dive with Omanta as much as possible as its professional yet relaxed and extremely reasonable rates for scuba divers and snorkelers alike. If you like either of those activities then Omanta is the place to book with....... Not to mention encounters with whale sharks !!!!

We went out with Nasser and Omanta Scuba Diving Academy today. As usual, wonderful company, care and fun. To make things even more perfect, we saw 5-8 young whale-sharks just outside of the marina, as we left. We spent the better part of an hour cruising and snorkeling with them until it really was time to head to the Daymaniyats... More

All in all, I would say that Omanta is a fantastic dive company which strives to allow people to dive somewhat affordably. This is the cheapest company that I could find in Oman during Ramadan and they give you a day of incredible dives and we were very lucky to have the privilege of seeing whale sharks on our way...

Instructor is very helpful and friendly, the club is very well equiped and the dive spots are awsome. However, a lot still need to be done on the safety side. The club staff must be more attentive and watchful towards the divers during the dives, especially at night dives. The instructor is also very environmental friendly

I was part of a group visiting Oman for scuba diving, prior to our arrival we scheduled all dives with Nasser the owner of Omanta, a nice and funny person. Dives were awesome, especially the Aquarium location where you can spot leopard shark a mid depth. My personal concerns were on another shallow dive that kept us going up and... More
