Diving in Bahrain

Explore diving in Bahrain

Bahrain is Arabic for "two seas", referring to the fresh water springs that can be found within the salty sea surrounding it. This phenomenon is believed to be responsible for the unusual lustre of Bahraini pearls – over 400 sq miles of oyster beds offer a unique dive experience.

Other than reef diving in Bahrain, there are a variety of wreck dives, including ships, planes, tugs and barges. Caisson wreck is located 20 miles off the coast of Bahrain. This concrete and steel structure is home to numerous fishes.

Indo Pacific species including clown fish, trigger fish, surgeon fish, lion fish, grouper, snapper and even whalesharks can be spotted; tuna, trevally and barracuda cruise above. Dugong (sea cows) feed on sea grass in southern Bahrain during cooler months.
