Black Tip Reef, The Damaniyat Islands

clear water of damaniyats  The Damaniyat Islands consist of 9 islands and there are a total of 12 recognized dive-sites to explore there.  Our first dive (which is my 19th dive to date) on Thursday, April 13th, was to Black Tip Reef; so named because of the black tip reef sharks which are often observed there. (Not on this dive, thank God! 😉 ) We were with Faisal, Muneer and the gang from Omanta Scuba.  It was a beautiful day for diving!our motley crew  Our motley crew heading to Black Tip Reef!ready to submerge  Getting ready for the dive…We were down for a total of 48 minutes at a bottom depth of 26 meters.
