Just wanted to let you know that my dive safari to southern Oman in the halaniyat islands was an amazing trip. We were the only boat/divers in the area so had all the dive sites to ourselves and the food onboard was delicious and so was the free beer. The diving far exceeded my expectations and I saw lots of different species I had not seen before some unique only to Oman. Highlights were giant honeycomb morays, large octopus, cuttlefish, dragon morays, turtles, dolphins, Jawfish, leopard shark, huge honeycomb stingrays, a night dive with 2.5 meter bow mouth guitar shark, huge schools of fish, safety stops surrounded by jelly fish and big schools of fusiliers, swim throughs and much much more. Great trip and great memories. Thank you to you and everyone at scuba travel for your part in making my dive holiday totally awesome.

Well looked after one of the best liveaboard I have been on. It is the first time I have had a toilet and shower that have been separate. The sleeping area was large. Some of the best food I have had on a live a board. When I booked the trip I had no idea what to expect.You will not get big reef walls or drop offs or large amounts of soft corals. Fish life lotsof them from big rays to the small ones, there is a lot of nudibranchs of different sizes if you like them your in for a treat. This is a new dive area so some of the sites are not well known so a bit of an adventure.I would go to Oman again maybe the north this time to see how different it is.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable trip, great boat, crew was amazing, incredibly helpful, thoughtful, fun and good expertise from the dive guides. Particularly great cruise director and Naomi spotted amazing small stuff everywhere. Equipment was in great condition too, looked almost new. Saw a lot but some of the highlights are toad fish (a type you only get in Oman apparently), frog fish, leopard sharks, various rays, big green turtles, many octopi (think I got that right), slipper lobsters, a million morays, lots of other delights like snorkeling with baby whale shark, spotting humpback whales from the boat, and ended up swimming with a dolphin pod in one bay!! Much more. Enormous amount of fish life in general, lots of shoals, like swimming in an aquarium. Less coral but that is not my thing anyway. And so much food!!
