Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Dubai combines excitement for advanced divers with safety for beginners. P.A.D.I. (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) and B.S.A.C. (British Sub Aqua Club) approved instruction available at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels.

May to October is so warm that no wetsuits are needed, 3mm suits are comfortable for the Rest of the year.

Many submerged wrecks attract startling array of vivid tropical fish and make for fascinating diving.
