Dibba Al Fujairah Night Dive Overview
There’s an undeniable thrill about descending below the surface of the sea at night. Even if you have explored a site repeatedly in the past, diving in the same location just when the light fades and your surroundings get covered in darkness is a whole new experience.
The Fujairah night diving trip begins at 6:30PM with a boat ride into the sunset where you’ll get to witness the sky change into vivid colors as the night sets in. Twilight is an ideal time to slowly descend in the waters so you could observe the amazing shift take place as daytime creatures bid good night and nocturnal animals wake up from their slumber to reclaim their territory.

Dive spots and what you can expect to see
The Fujairah artificial reef is known for its concrete reef balls with holes on the top and sides, with some weighing as much as two tons. These man-made reef spheres have been instrumental in helping the coral reefs grow and lure back different species of fish including bannerfish, pufferfish, emperor angelfish, lionfish, broomtail wrasse, lionfish, and shoals of yellowtail. There is also possible sightings of stingrays, squid, cuttlefish, and barracuda.
Dibba Rock, on the other hand, is a protected marine reserve which is ideal for all advanced divers as the dive site has visibility ranging anywhere from 5 to 20 meters and depths varying from 4 to 16 meters depending on the tide. It’s a great site for night diving because it’s easy to navigate and has an interesting marine life. Get a chance to see rays cruising in the waters and sharks actively hunting for food. You might also spot a cuttlefish and an octopus chasing prey but be a little more observant because they might be on camouflage mode. Watch out for lobsters too as they come out of their hiding places.
Another neat thing about diving in Dibba Al Fujairah at night is witnessing the underwater glow in the dark nature show. If you’re lucky, you might witness the phosphorescence appearance of bioluminescent plankton that magically glimmers like fireflies in the water.
