What??? Enother Dive?

Hi All,

We thought that it will be a good idea to have one more dive before the trip to Salalah, so if you are interested grab your seat.
This time we are planning to visit Khasab in Oman. We will be diving on the side of the Oman golf which is open to the Indian Ocean.
The plan is to drive to the harbor of Khasab and all meet at he diving center Musandam Discovery Diving center. From there we will take the speed boat for a 40 minutes drive to our first dive site.
The schedule will be as typically 2x I hour dive with one hour brake in between.
Meeting time 8:00 AM
Departure time 9:00 Am
Return 15:30
Cost PP including equipment 450AED
Cost not including equipment (air tanks and weights will be provided) 350AED
Location : 26.200583, 56.244436
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Musan ... 56.2442004


Water and fruits will be provided on the boat from the center but will be limited, so make sure you make the necessary arrangements for power snacks between dives.

The driving time to our destination is approximately 2H:30min. Please ensure that you obtain your Oman Visa.

NOTE: For the People that are going to participate on the Salalah Trip most likely the issuance of the one visa should be enough to cover both trips.



Last but not least is the confirmation of the date. We propose two different dates for the trip July 28th Saturday and August 4th Saturday. Lets vote and see which day out of the two will be the most popular.

1. Giorgio ( Available for both dates)


P.S additional information will be provided as we get closer to the rip date. Stay tuned.
