The waters off Fujairah are not the clearest, but there is plenty of marine life if you have the patience to look closely. We spent some hours on one of the Inchcape wrecks in 23 metres and encountered plenty of fish, a banded sea-snake, several morays, a turtle, and a number of small shrimp. Visibility was only three to four meters. The wreck, deliberately sunk as an artificial reef, is accumulating quite profuse sponge and soft coral growth. We took a private charter aboard the Lejaine from Arabian Diver and Aqua Marine Tours. We'd been on the boat several times previously over the past few years, the crews have changed over time, but the seamanship has always been first class and the service has been consistently high quality and, most importantly, warm and friendly. For scuba divers, it can be a bit challenging to re-board the dhow in choppy water. The stern diving platform sits above water level so it requires a few steps up open-rung ladders to climb up out of the water. No issue in calm water, but with the stern pitching up and down in choppy seas it does require care. Overall, though Adel, and now Valentina, have the dhow well set up. It's extremely comfortable, plenty of shade, room to spread out on deck,lounge around, and relax. For a private charter it's magic, but even with larger groups of people on board, there's still plenty of comfortable privacy available. The meals, freshly prepared on board and served at the dining table under shade, on deck, are tasty, filling, and well presented. All in all, a great way to spend time at sea off the Arabian shore.

I attended an event that was in collaboration with Arabian Divers and the whole day was absolutely perfect. Arabian Divers were very professional, well organized and ran the event smoothly. The team of expert divers made everyone feel comfortable and safe and added to a very memorable experience. I would highly recommend Arabian Divers for anyone in need of diving expertise, whether personal or professional.

Everything about this yacht cruise was excellent from the service to the yacht itself, to the comfort of the love beds in the stern. Absolutely great day out when you visit Dubai. I have zero complaints or criticisms - thank you for an excellent stay! Captain Riyaz was brilliant. very helpful with the kids. Loved to teach the children about the boat. Even let them steer. Albert was great with taking care of every need. The buffet lunch was really great. Healthy, light, clean. we were impressed. Great Value for Money. can't wait to return

We took a yacht cruise in Recently with Arabian diver. From the beginning we knew this was gonna be great. The yacht itself is so beautul. Plenty of space . Some people were lounging, some were fishing. We set sail to a island of the coast of Dubai. Along the way we saw the whole Dubai skyline. Once at the island we listened to a safety briefing then went out on a snorkel. I was surprised with the large amount of fish life. The kids really enjoyed it. The crew on board were so friendly. From the host to the captain. They went out of there way to make sure every guest was satisfied. The captain Adel even let our kids steer the boat. My son had such a great time, a big thank you. We will definetly recommend this trip. Can't wait to come back next month.
