Scuba Diving

The clear blue oceans of Oman are ideal for scuba diving where crystal clear waters make it easy to take in the beauty that lies beneath. Take an Open Water Dive Course to become a certified scuba diver or take one of the beginner introduction courses for an overview of the sport, starting at OMR35.

Kite Boarding

If you’re a fan of extreme sports then make the trip down to Masirah island this summer for kiteboarding, an activity that uses the power of the wind as harnessed by a large kite, to help propel you across the waves. You can either do a full eight-hour course, divided over two days for OMR169, after which you will be issued a certificate, or you can simply test the waters with a one to two hour session for OMR36
