Excellent diving with Antonio! Will be back. Relaxed pace and plenty of great underwater life!
Lunch was good too and plenty of drinks provided. Great day out with the family.

Hi, just came back from a week end diving with the guys of Nomad Ocean.

ORGANISATION: Very good standards, clear communication, pricing structure well exposed and confirmed during the stay. There is even a driver service in case you come from Dubai and on request (at extra cost)

ACCOMODATION: Simple but very functional rooms, with a good, strong Air Conditioning for those hot nights........

MEALS: Excellent and very varied every night. The Chef is very good and quantities are plentiful

DIVING SITES: quite long boat rides to ensure that the best diving sites are reached, reefs are nice, but do not expected the visibility of Southern Red Sea

DIVING AND RENTAL EQUIPMENT SAFETY: nothing is left to the chance here. Accurate log in information available for all the used AIr and Nitrox tanks. Very strict checking in and checking out of the equipment. The guys here know their staff

STAFF FRIENDLINESS: Great people who keep smiling notwithstanding the heat and the repeated dives.

I will be back there, a big hello to Rose, Shannon, Matt, the Chef, my friend from Sri Lanka end Captain Ahmed,

We had a great week together with Nomad Ocean Adventures. We stayed for a week in the accomodation of the dive center and it was just lovely. The room was nice and clean, the home cooked food was delicious and every meal we could choose from a variety of plates, even the lunch in between the dives was very special and so good!
The diving was good. We went in November, at some dive sites the visibility was limited to 5-7meters but still we saw a lot of big fish, like jacks, trevelli, tuna but also sharks (Leopard and white tip reef sharks). We heard of whale shark sightings but we missed them.
We were lucky to expierence the Pirate party at the dive center. Everybody dressed up, we had a lot of fun! The staff at Nomad Ocean Adventures is very motivated and wants to make the best of your dive trip! So let them take care of you!

I stayed with Nomad Ocean Adventures in January 2014 and loved it! Great people, great diving, great accommodation (pool side villas), very laid back atmosphere, (mostly) friendly guests from all over the world (U.K., Malaysia, France, Germany & The Netherlands), excellent food.
The dive sites are unspoiled and teeming with life. I imagine this is what the Red Sea used to look like before mass tourism kicked in? I had never been to Oman before and wasn't expecting a lot, to be frank. As diving locations go Dibba is still relatively "new". So no big boulevards with loud & drunk tourist or McDonald's on every corner. No need for it either (and I hope Dibba never becomes like that!) because you have everything in the comfort of your own little compound.
I stayed in one of the pool side villa and felt like royalty.
If you are thinking of booking this trip in January you should remember to bring a jacket for on the boat. The boat is very fast, but the 45 minute boat ride to the dive sites (and back) will get a bit chilly without a jacket that time of year. Even on the boat the food was terrific. Nomad are very lucky to have such a great chef.
I found the staff to be professional and, very important: unobtrusive. They seem to be a great judge of character and will give you your space if you need it. If you'd like to have a good laugh, then pull up a chair!
I'll be back!!!!
