Oman / Extra Divers Qantab

Just outside Muscat, along the rocky cliffs, you can find one of the rare beaches of this area: That’s exactly the place you will find us, in Shangri-la Resort.
Our Centre organizes daily dive trips in Bandar Al Khayran area and Fahal Island: With more than 20 different dive sites, you can spot a full variety of fishes, lots of rays, nudibranches, small and giant moray eels, barracudas, colorful reef fishes and hawksbill turtles.
And in lucky days the sharks can be spotted too.
The best thing in diving here is simply being surrounded by clouds of fishes - as divers often can only dream – and, apart from the reef, it worth a visit to the Al Munassir wreck (84 m length vessel) , as it is house of large number of many different marine creatures.

Diving/Dive spots

The Extra Divers Dive Center is located in the Marina of Barr Al Jissah resort:
By our speedboats we can reach Fahal Island in 30 minutes , Bandar al Khayran in 15 minutes and Daymanyiat islands in 90 minutes.
Dive sites varies from shallow coral gardens to rocky slopes and walls: marine life is abundant, and surprising encounters can be just behind the corner, although the visibility can be from 5 to 15-20 meters maximum.
We generally organize SMALL groups: each guide is leading maximum 4-5 divers (depending by divers’ level/experience): that’s perfect for accurate supervision, safety, ‘cozyness’ and last but not least: FUN!

Team & Education

The dive center is managed by Barbara and Damiano, plus a great diving Team is waiting for you!
It is a real ‘meltin’ pot’: omani, german, french, italian…
One guests’ quote that we’ve really appreciated, as it’s well describing our Centre : “german organization and italian friendly staff”;
The focus is on safety – from the check-in time with an accurate control of divers’ certifications and levels (in order to organize dive groups at best!) and medical certs, to the offer of refresh dives and courses to improve divers’ skills; safety is improved by the several detailed briefings (that our Staff give to guests BEFORE EACH DIVE: Boat instructions and safety procedures in case of emergencies) and the equipment on board; for the same reason, at our Centre is compulsory the use of a dive computer for each participant, and if the guest hasn’t got one we provide it!
The fun and friendly part then is also the Team!! Imagine to mix omani hospitality with french professionalism and german efficiency but all with a funny italian accent - plus finally add all individual personalities: that’s explosive!! Most of the team have more than 10 year experience in diving!

Courses available in German, English, Italian, French and Arabic. SSI standards and PADI materials as well. Contact : (+968) 96 31 90 81
