Deep & Shallow: Inchcape-Sharm Rock- Snoopy Island

Almost divers’ time to have another dive trip.
This time we are diving with Nemo divers a well-established diving center operating in UAE since 2014 with branches in Dubai (Jumeirah) and Fujairah (Dibba).

As we all know the dive sites are pretty limited in UAE so finding new destinations for diving was not as fruitful as I would like. This is on top of the challenging fact that our group consists from divers of all different levels which translate into restriction of diving sites (base on depth).
Having all the above in mind I propose the below trip:

We report to the diving center (day to be agreed from the participants preferably second week of October) at 8:15 am and conclude the trip at 2:30pm.
As a result of the mixed divers that we have in the group, this trip could be a 3 stop arrangement and provide 2 dives for advanced divers and 2 dives for the level below.

1st stop Inchcape 1: This is a wreck dive. The wreck boat was sunk in 2001 by Inchcape Shipping and rests amid occasional strong currents. The wreck is below 30 meters which means divers have an average of 20 minutes of bottom time.
In this stop only advance open water level and above will be able to dive. Open water divers will remain on the boat or do some snorkeling / swimming.

2nd stop Sharm Rocks : four small outcrops of rock just breaking the surface. These rocks are covered in soft corals and provide a haven for all kinds of marine life. This dive is on 15-18 m and all levels are welcome to enjoy.

3rd stop Snoopy Island: This is a shallow dive 8-12 m depends on the tide. It is a perfect location for snorkeling. In this dive the open water divers will have their second tank dive while the advance divers (since they are already had 2 dives) can remain on the boat and relax all swim/snorkel around.

The trip inclusions:
• Unlimited soft drinks, water, juice.
• Live BBQ lunch at the end of the trip on board.
• Certified Dive master / instructor.
• Sound system available to be used with AUX cable / USB.
• Toilet / Shower available.
• Sundeck and sunbed for tanning.
• Snorkeling equipment available.

Rates:
• 2 Dives with tanks & weights AED350.
• 2 Dives with full equipment AED400.

General notes: Deep dives provide less bottom time (20 min) so if our advance and above level members are not interested in such dive then we can arrange out trip to be a 2 stop dive and perform only dives in the Sharm Rock and Snoopy Island.

Good morning fellow divers :)

Thanks @giorgio for your effort, highly appreciate it.

The advanced certificate is on my agenda, but I probably will not be able to get it until October. But count me in for the open water level dives in love

I have a friend who might be interested to join (level assistant diving instructor). So is this trip only for Almost members? And is there any min/max number of people?

We are not having a private boat for out dives so i do not see a problem for your friend to join the dive. Upon finalizing further details you can inform your friend to join.
