Scuba Diving in Musandam

Brian spent 3 days on a Dhow boat scuba diving and taking his Advanced Open Water Diver exams in Musandam, Oman back in May. He's now certified to dive to depths of 30 meters (100 feet).

He booked the trip through Al Marsa out of Dibba, Oman and found them to be a really great dive company. The trip began with a 3 hour drive from Abu Dhabi to Dibba on a Thursday night. Once everyone was on board the boat and settled into their bunks, the boat left port and started heading north towards the Strait of Hormuz. By morning, they were in Musandam at the first dive site and in the water by 7 AM. The first day consisted of 4 dives, with the final dive of the day being a night dive. Saturday and Sunday consisted of 6 more dives, with plenty of time in between for swimming and socializing on board. 

Apparently it was good fun because he's already booked another dive trip in October, but plans to have a proper underwater camera next time to capture all the wondrous aquatic life.
