Fujairah Diving Trips
Fujairah Dive Tour Overview
The depths of the UAE opens the door to an amazing underwater hotspot teeming with rich marine life. Our diving trip in Fujairah gives you the privilege of spending the day discovering untouched reefs and exploring mysterious wrecks.
If you’re a certified diver, you can secure your spot on our boat and we will take you on an exciting trip with nature as the perfect backdrop. We’ll sail alongside breathtaking mountains and the finest bays of Fujairah as we visit two different but equally exciting dive sites. We only take small groups to make sure that our clients benefit from personalized attention.
We begin the dive trip at 8:30 am by starting off with an onboard briefing and breakfast as we head towards our first dive location. After that, we’ll give you time to replenish your energy by enjoying a nice lunch as we head to the second dive site.
You have to be a certified diver and in good physical health to join this trip.
What to bring with you
You must bring your scuba diving license and valid original passport or Emirates ID for this trip. We suggest that you bring a change of clothes and a towel as well.
Where are the diving spots?
We’ll take you to two amazing locations in Fujairah which may change each day so expect our instructor to get in touch with you before the diving trip to confirm the final sites. We go to all diving locations including the following:
Dibba Rock is a marine protected area on the UAE’s east coast located half a kilometer away from the shore. It is surrounded by incredible corals on all sides. On the west side of the rock, the sea is shallow while on the east side, it can drop to around 14 m in depth.
Sharm Rock, also known as “The Three Sisters” or “Three Pinnacles” lies fairly close to shore and has three small outcrops of rocks that peak above the surface and the soft corals that surround them attract different kinds of marine creatures. The western side is shallow with an average depth of 3 to 5 m while the eastern side is deeper with a maximum depth of 12 m. There is a fourth rock but can only be visited by more experienced certified divers.
Martini Rock got its name from the shape of its rocky pinnacles found under the surface which appears like a martini glass on its side. The pinnacles are clad in soft and hard corals which serve as shelter for a variety of marine life. It reaches a depth of 22 meters with visibility varying from 5 to 25 m.
Hole in the Wall is located near the Martini Rock site so don’t be surprised if you see similar marine life. The exciting thing about going to this dive site is finding the hole which is just large enough for a diver to swim through. Good buoyancy control will come in handy when you maneuver into the hole which is around 15 m in length and 3 m wide by 1.5 m high.
Inchcape 1 is the remains of a boat originally called Gray Swift 2. This boat was used by Inchcape Shipping Services to carry crew and supplies for ships, oil platforms, and rigs in Dubai and Fujairah. When the vessel was decommissioned, it was purposely sank to create an artificial reef which lies 30 m under the sea.
Inchcape 2 is another vessel purposely sunk by Inchcape Shipping in 2002. The wreck lies of 22 m beneath the surface and is covered by yellow, pink, and purple corals. Divers can expect an exciting and challenging exploration because of its different terrain and amazing wildlife.
What you can expect to see
Dibba Rock is known for its green turtles, devil rays, blacktip reef sharks, and a variety of reef fish such as parrotfish, porcupinefish, lionfish, and pufferfish. Small morays may be spotted hiding in the coral bed while schools of bannerfish, damselfish and butterfly fish hover around the rocks and corals. If you have a good eye, you might find pipefish and seahorses at the site.
The outcrops of rocks at Shamrock are a haven for snappers, jacks, fusiliers, and largemouth mackerel; some of which are irresistible to large tuna that hunt in this area. Other interesting marine creature sightings are lionfish, boxfish, batfish, shrimps, moray eels, turtles, stingrays, and blacktip reef sharks. The whale sharks are sometimes spotted in these waters during the warmer months of the year.
Martini Rock is noted for its orange, deep purple, and bright yellow soft corals. Turtles that love to feed on the corals are frequently spotted in this area. This site is also home to scorpionfish, pufferfish, lionfish, burrfish, broomtail wrasse, fusiliers, sergeant majors, and bannerfish. In deeper waters, there are possible sightings of colorful hawkfish, Arabian angelfish, and cornetfish. You may also see starfish, sea urchins, seahorses, nudibranchs, barracuda, cuttlefish, and moray eels.
The marine life found in the Hole in the Wall is similar to Martini Rock because of their close proximity.
When you go wreck diving at Inchcape 1, you may spot yellow jacks, pufferfish, pennant fish, soldierfish, snappers, boxfish, red big eyes, moray eels, and barracuda.
When you venture into Inchcape 2, take a close look at the railings and ropes for signs of crabs which may be concealed by the growth of their shells. You might also encounter moray eels, scorpionfish, little boxfish, and small creatures like the nudibranchs.
