Scuba Diving is the only excuse left for humans to play around in
gigantic puddles, practice breath-holding techniques and put on super skimpy
We offer different dive trips to suit all levels of divers. The coast
around Dubai is filled with spectacular wrecks, some of which were
intentionally sunk to create new habitats for marine life. Some of the wrecks
date back to the 1960s and all make for very interesting insights in to the
nautical history of the area.
The East Coast provides some of the best diving available in
the U.A.E. Natural coral reefs flourish at coastal dive sites, supporting ample
marine life, not only in variety but also numbers. Musandam offers some of the most spectacular diving around the Arabian

What does SCUBA stand for?
SCUBA is an acronym for Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus.
Is diving safe?
Modern dive training uses methods and techniques that have been
developed over decades to make sure the educational systems produce safe
recreational divers. Because of this, scuba diving is one of the safer
recreational activities in which you can participate. The equipment, training,
and instructors all work together to make sure diving is as safe as possible,
and diving’s safety record shows they’ve done their homework well.
What happens if there is an emergency?
In the unlikely event of a dive or medical emergency, students are in
good hands. Every certified dive instructor is required to be current in CPR
and first-aid techniques. Many instructors have had advanced training in dive
medicine and know how to handle events in an emergency. Dive instructors carry
first aid kits during open-water dives and can conduct ship-to-shore
communications if aboard a boat.
How old do I have to be to dive?
A student must be at least 15 years old to qualify for a full, adult
certification card (C-card). Youngsters between 12-14 can be certified as
Junior Open-Water divers, which means they must dive with a certified adult
diver. There is no upper age limit.
What about sharks?
They’ve been called nature’s under-water garbage disposal, but from the
sharks’ perspective, there are a lot of smaller creatures that are easier to
catch and consume, so humans don’t look that appetizing. And besides, sometimes
sharks are even hard to find, and when you do, they must be provoked before
they’ll bother divers.
How well do I have to swim?
Students have to know how to swim, and feel comfortable in the water,
but expert swimming skills are not required.
Are there any medical problems that will keep me from diving?
Some of the more serious conditions include: epilepsy, chronic ear
infections, diabetes, active asthma, emphysema, heart disease, hemophilia,
claustrophobia, depression, and addictive drug or alcohol abuse.
There are other conditions which preclude scuba diving, and some
temporary conditions that could delay dive training. For more information
contact your physician in order to avoid disappointments.
Can I dive wearing contact lenses?
I would not recommend any water sports with hard lenses. Soft contact
lenses contain their own percentage of salt water (same concentration as blood,
which is much lower than seawater), so a flooded mask is much less of a
problem. My advice is to dive with disposable soft contacts (not permanent ones)
because, in the unlikely event of losing one, they're cheap to replace.
