Oman / Extra Divers Sifah

Nestled in the Haja Mountains is one of the most beautiful Extra Divers dive centers. The center in oriental boutique style is under German management. Incredibly large fish wealth, beautiful coral reefs, rocky cliffs and two beautifully overgrown wrecks with stationary seahorses nearby make Sifah so attraktive for diving.
And you never know who comes around the corner. Huge feather-tailed rays, green turtles and, in fall, also whalesharks. It is also a paradise for macro diving. Different types of snails and shrimps surprise our guides again and again. The mix does it. Direct access to the boat dock makes logistics easy for customers. With the boat the dive sites are reached within 15 to 30 minutes.
The beautiful area is not crowded. You surely will find peace after the dives and no overflowing beach. The food is excellent and between barbecue buffet or al la carte you have the opportunity to enjoy fresh snacks on the beach. In the evening, divers sit comfortably together in the hotel bar "Taucherbar" for Happy Hour beer.
