Oversikt

Oman is not really one of those places you hear about as a diving destination, but nevertheless, the diving scene in this beautiful country is alive and kicking. Oman is very beautiful above and below the water, with lush green oasis', mountains, wadis and a very long coastline that offers a lot of interesting topography and abundant marine and coral life. Unlike many other places with decent diving - Oman is not over run with tourists/divers.
