OUR MEMBERS CREATE VIDEOS' OF THIER DIVES AND LOG THEM FOR THE WEEKLY DIVE REPORT
The scuba diving is what we are here for and most weekends, weather permitting, we organise dive trips which includes as a rule two dives on a Friday. We dive mainly shipwrecks in the Arabian Gulf, some of which sank 50 years and others only a few months ago. Our dive boats are launched from various locations depending on the dive site.
The exception is the Energy Determination lying in 80m of water. At the time of it's sinking it was the largest constructive total loss ever underwritten by Lloyd's of London. The top of the wreck can be reached by experienced divers but you need technical equipment and training to get to the bottom.
If you prefer coral reefs, we also make trips over to the East Coast where coral reefs are much more prevalent and are home to a huge variety of fish life.
Most of these sites have the advantage of being close to shore. If we want to go further, we organise Dhow trips along the Musandam Peninsular with its wonderful scenery and spectacular diving.
