Diving in Dubai

Explore diving in Dubai

Dubai being a seaport is littered with self-contained ecosystems in the wrecks of the Persian Gulf. Some are depths that only technical divers are qualified for but, for the most part, a portion of the wreck, the MV Dara is accessible to advanced divers.

In the Gulf of Oman, Fujairah is a favorite site featuring warm water, bleached sand and tropical fish. Sharm rock and Martini rock are pinnacles in the area that are a natural aquarium for marine species. The pinnacles are adorned with pink and purple corals.

When to dive in Dubai

Water temperature varies from 75°F (22°C) in the winter months to 91°F (33°C) in the summer months when a wetsuit is definitely optional.
