Reach underwater world in Musandam

Crociera molto sportiva (3 immersioni al giorno - alle 7, 11 e 15 più l'eventuale notturna alle 19). Paesaggio ricco di scogliere - deserto roccioso - a picco sul mare, fondali ricchi di flora e tantissimi pesci. Ottimo e abbondantissimo cibo, servizio impeccabile. Cabine piuttosto sacrificate e scomode (unica nota negativa).

Great experience in Oman

Great food, excellent service, perfect weather. Best night dives in my life! Remote trip with no other dive boats around. The only problem was visibility in the water.

Great peaceful week on the water

I had a great week on the Brown Dhow (well, technically it was the Blue Dhow in the end). Awesome crew, stunning views of the landscape from the boat, and first-rate diving in a part of the world where fishing only appears to be small-scale... I have seen things underwater that I haven't seen anywhere else yet! Warmly recommended!
