Two Bedroom Beachfront Retreat at Six Senses Zighy Bay Oman

Scuba Diving in Oman

The unique underwater ecosystem of the Gulf of Oman is becoming an increasingly important destination for the diving community.

Six Senses Zighy Bay offers first class facilities for beginners and experts alike, as well as guided excursions to the best dive sites in the area. Some of the best sites in the region are 45 to 60 minutes north of Zighy Bay by speedboat, around Lima, where the plankton-rich waters and mix of hard and soft corals attract an incredible variety of marine life.

The new dive centre, run by Extra Divers Worldwide, offers guided dives and diving courses (SSI, CMAS and PADI) in English, German and French.

If you’re staying in Muscat, you don’t need to venture far. The Daymaniyat Islands are roughly 45 minutes from Muscat’s coast by speedboat, this group of nine tiny islands comprises Oman’s first marine reserve and offers divers and snorkellers the opportunity to take in colourful coral reefs, clear waters and schools of snapper and other fish. If you’re staying at the Chedi or the Shangri la, it is possible to organise an excursion, which offers two dives a day.
