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 heading to Black Tip Reef! Getting ready for the dive…We were down for a total of 48 minutes at a bottom depth of 26 meters. (Apart from the 1st 2 pics of this post, all photo credits go to Denise Boyd! Amazing job as always, Denise!) Here’s a video I put together from different clips I filmed during this dive:
Whether it’s for snorkeling or diving, anyone living in or visiting Oman should try to make it to the Damaniyat Islands at least once. Gorgeous!
