Musandam Overnight Dive Trip Overview
If a single day trip doesn’t seem enough to satisfy your appetite for diving, you can book an overnight trip in Musandam on our custom-built Omani boat. Join us on an exciting trip to some of the best dive sites in terms of marine life sightings and visibility. Here's the diving itinerary:
Our divemasters will meet you at 10:30 PM at the border of Musandam and take you to the harbor to board our Omani boat. Once onboard, we will conduct a quick boat and trip program briefing followed by some paperwork to be done with our guides. You can then relax under the stars or sleep in sleeping bags on the upper deck while we gently cruise to Musandam, Oman.
Enjoy the fresh morning breeze as we serve a sumptuous breakfast. You'll need all the calories as the day is filled with exciting activities. First, we’ll take you to White Rock for your first dive and then to Umm Al Fayarin Island for your second dive. After having a hearty meal and, we’ll then head off to Ras Lima for your third stop and there you can do snorkeling or you can explore the waters as the sun goes down if you signed up for night diving (only for Advanced Open Water divers or higher).
We’ll begin the day with a hearty breakfast to give you energy for the two separate dives. We’ll go to Octopus Rock for your first dive and then Lima Rock for your second dive, followed by a delicious lunch. After a rewarding dive experience, we will take you back to the port at around 6PM and call it a day.

Dive locations may depend on the level of your diving certification. Open Water divers can enjoy four dives while Advanced Divers may enjoy four dives at the following locations:
At Umm Al Fayarin, you can expect to see fusiliers, angelfish, giant trevally, manta rays, stingrays, batfish, and turtles in these waters.
Octopus Rock is home to different kinds of reef fish, trevally, tuna, barracuda, and occasional leopard sharks. Keep your eyes open for tiny marine creatures like fan worms and feather stars that live in the corals. Check out the sandy bottom for a chance to spot resting stingrays.
At Ras Sanot, you will see a variety of hard corals, orange and pink soft corals, and large shoals of reef fish. If you dive deeper than 20 m, you will find yellow, green, black, and purple coral. You are likely to encounter different types of rays, leopard sharks, white tip sharks, and yellow-mouth moray eels. You can also find colorful nudibranchs on the northern side of the island.
Lima Rock is marked by a limestone rock that measures about 300 meters long by 200 meters wide and has very rough sides. On the southern side of the island, you are likely to spot jacks, tuna, and devil rays and if you’re likely you might even come across a sunfish. There’s also a chance to see yellow-mouthed morays, marble rays, and torpedo rays.
