Just 80 miles from Dubai on a modern highway is Oman’s little-known Musandam Peninsula – an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Dramatic vertical cliffs in meandering bays plunge into the azure seas below, giving Musandam the affectionate nickname, ‘the fjords of the Gulf’. Below water the drama continues with dynamic underwater topography and an incredible array of exotic marine species.
Deep waters and cool upwelling water provide a rich plankton soup, making the coral gardens and drops-offs a rich feeding ground attracting a huge variety of marine life; whale shark, sun fish, pilot whales, lobsters, hawksbill, green turtles, huge schools of snapper, barracuda and jacks. Critters galore are also in abundance including nudibranchs, seahorses, mantis shrimp, cuttlefish and frogfish making Musandam a macro-photographer’s delight.
A fully equipped on-board diving room will cater to your needs. The Musandam is a pristine new destination, the deep drop-offs and cool water upwelling provides an abundance of plankton making this area a rich feeding ground for a large and colorful variety of marine life. Turtles, Reef sharks, Dolphins, Whale sharks, plus all the reef fish and corals of the Indian Ocean are usually spotted, and Hammerheads, Minke Whales & Sunfish have been seen.
The air temperatures here vary according to seasons. The lowest day temperature in Jan - Feb may reach 14°C and the highest is commonly 40°C in summer with 100% humidity. Not to worry our vessels are fully air-conditioned. The water temperature ranges from 20°C - 32°C. The milky visibility is due purely to the rich plankton, without which Oman’s incredible marine biodiversity wouldn’t be as rich nor as pleasurable.
