Marina Bandar Al Rowdha

Oman offers fantastic scuba diving conditions through the year and dive sites populated by an vibrant abundance of marine life making the Marina Bandar Al Rowdha a great base to explore the surrounding area. The marina Bandar Al Rowdha is one of the recent dive centers managed by Euro-Divers in Oman .

The marina Bandar Al Rowdha opened in 1996, it is surrounded by an emerald blue sea and and flanked by steep mountains near Al Bustan, Muscat. A fantastic getaway destination for a scuba diving holiday.

Euro-Divers Bandar Al Rowdha

Although visibility can be the tricky element when diving in Oman, we can honestly say that the average visibility in the Sultanate is around 12 to 15 meters, reaching sometimes as far as 25 meters.

These plankton rich waters attract an array of marine life incomparable to other diving destinations, a true mix of fauna and flora of the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.

The best time of the year with regards to visibility is during the summer months, April to September, although these are also the hottest months concerning air temperature.

You can expect water temperature as low as 22C during the winter, October to March, and as high as 29C during the summer (April to September), with some thermoclines from time to time and in some dive sites more than others.

Almost all of our dive sites are accessible for snorkelers and non-divers are welcome on board to discover what the Oman Gulf has to offer above and below water.

Diving trips

Here are all the diving activities from the Euro-Divers dive shop in Muscat: The dive shop at the Marina Bandar Al Rhowda is open from Wednesday to Sunday (during EID holidays or special public holidays the diving center will remain open as well on Mondays and Tuesdays)! We do 2 dives from 9am till 2pm, meeting time at 8:30am at the dive center. That should be enough time for you to sign up & get your equipments ready.

Bander Khairan

We usually go to the Bandar Khairan area in the south of Muscat, where there are lots of fantastic dive sites & you can see lots of beautiful marine life such as lovely reef fishes, morays, sting rays sometimes, lion fish, cuttlefishes & perhaps some turtles. There is a nice wreck called the Al Munassir which lies at 30 meters down where schools of fish can be found on the decks.

Fahal Island

Sometimes we go to the Fahal Islands at the north part of Muscat which is equally great. The Island is situated around 4km from the mainland and ca. 40 min. by boat from the Marina Bandar Al Rhowda. The reefs offer some of the most beautiful reefs and abundant diverse coral coverage to be found in Oman. Of the 39 genera of corals that have been found in the Muscat area, almost all occur at Fahal Island, on three nearby rock pinnacles which range in depth from 17 to 35 m.

Throughout the year, our dive centers offer special activities, diving courses and excursions.Please contact your preferred dive center for more information about any of these activities as some fees can apply.
