Scuba Diving the Daymaniyat Islands, Oman
Dive Site: The Aquarium
Location: Daymaniyat Islands, Oman
Description: Subsea reef
Depth: 11 - 30 metres (33 - 100 feet)
Visibility: 5 - 10 metres (15 - 30 feet)
An 'umarked site' in the Daymaniyat Islands marine reserve insofaras it is not one of the islands but an open water site and as such prone to fairly wicked currents.
Huge quantities of reef fish (snapper, trigger etc) but what made the dives superb was the 'unusual' rare sightings. We had sting rays (5 free swimming), turtles (several), a leopard shark, a seahorse and numerous nudibranch over two dives. Fantastic.
