Oman Dive Center

Oman Dive Center      If you love snorkelling or scuba-diving, this is the place for you!  Located out of town between Bandar Beach and Al Bustan Palace and the Shangri-La, the area is gorgeous.  In fact, it’s one place that I frequently take people out to see due to the incredible views.dive areas  This a nice dive-site map found at the Dive Center giving you an idea of what the coast is like near Muscat.mountains around dive center  Check out those cute Barasti (traditional Omani) style huts (35 available) situated on the beach at the Center.  Instead of getting a hotel somewhere else and making the trip everyday for diving, I strongly suggest those coming to Oman to rent a place here if you want to get a scuba-diving license.muscat seaside  Check out the informative Oman Dive Center website at www.omandivecenter.com .  They have info in English, German, Italian and French! (as well as other languages)rock and sea  They have a restaurant (named “Odyssey”) at the center and a bar (open noon-11:30pm) which is known as the best beach bar in Muscat.cliffs along muscat's sea  One thing to warn you about if you come out simply to hang out at the Center: they charge you for parking unless you are there for only 20 minutes or less.clear water near muscat  Just look at the color of that water!!!  Be sure to check out their website and consider the scuba-diving courses if you’re working/living here in Oman.

The rooms available at the Oman Dive Center are charming little huts and they go for around 30 rials. The problem is that they can be booked for weeks without any vacancy so you got to plan ahead…
