At Al Marsa Musandam we cater for our local guests coming from Oman and the United Arab Emirates as well as for the international clients who are looking for something unique without traveling all the way to the far east. Musandam is located 1.5 hours away from Dubai International Airport and we have our own transport options at our disposal.
We have a strong and knowledgeable crew on our board, from dive masters and instructors, to captains and cooks, and we are pushing the boundaries to become the best option when it comes to a liveaboard diving experience in Musandam. We have a large fleet of 19 vessels, excellent reputation and safety track record. Safety and convenience are our top priorities.

Our traditional Omani dhows and well equipped speed boats depart from Dibba Port and sail high-up along the Musandam peninsula, where the vast mountains meet the endless sea. During the trips we visit different dive sites in the area where our guests get the chance to explore the beautiful underwater world Musandam has to offer: a great variety of marine life and with an abundance of colorful fish.
Al Marsa Musandam is the only liveaboard operator in the area, which means the marine life is less disturbed by divers and there is higher chance to see spectacular underwater life.
Some dive sites can have mild currents which is preferred by large fish like barracuda, tuna, king fish and even black tip reef sharks. Various rays, green turtles, lobsters and even juvenile whale sharks are also often sighted. Our dive guides ensure the safety of our divers and provide the best possible underwater experience.
Whether you are looking for a day trip, a weekend get-away or a multi-day scuba-safari, we offer the perfect comfort and exceptional facilities on all of our traditional Omani dhows.
