First, the dive Center is actually in Khor Fakkan, which is on the opposite side of the peninsula from Dubai. We made reservations in advance, and included in what they set up was a driver and car to come to our hotel in Dubai to pick us up, and take us to the dive center, then back at the end of the day. It's about a 2 hour trip each way. Two days before our scheduled day, there was a huge sand storm, and they couldn't dive that day or the next. They were afraid the Coast Guard would not let them dive on our day. However, the afternoon before, they got approval. Maria at the dive center kept us informed at every turn. The diving itself is very nice. It's not Cozumel or French Polynesia, but there is a good amount of sea life. The entire staff was very good, and quite attentive. We had our own gear, but the rental gear others had looked to be in good shape. Again the five star rating was earned by the entire staff, both shore staff, and those on the boat. Maria De Luna in particular could not have been better about making sure everything went as planned, even when circumstances tried to interfere. Finally some of the older reviews refer to dives in Dubai itself. I learned the company used to have operations in bothDubai, and Khor Fakkan. They've since split into two companies. Everything about the Khor Fakkan operation seems very good. The older reviews, that were less favorable, seem to center on the Dubai experiences.
