Diving – Muscat
The waters of Oman represent an underwater paradise for diving & snorkelling with its wide variety of marine flora and fauna. Huge table corals, beautiful black coral, colourful whip and teddy bear corals abound while the fish ranging from the little cleaner wrasse to the enormous whale shark jostle for attention. The Gulf of Oman provides for excellent tropical Coral Sea diving and is home to 85 genera of hard and soft corals and 900 species of fish. In fact, so numerous and varied is the fish population here that new species are still being discovered and identified! At Gulf Leisure Diving we offer safe, comfortable and professional diving. Your safety and enjoyment is our guarantee. Our highly trained and professional staff are committed to providing the highest quality of service and standards of reliability on all of our diving trips.
