Dive into adventure with Al Boom Diving, the leading diving and watersports specialist in the U.A.E. Al Boom Diving was established in 1995 and has become a household name with a reputation for excellent service. Discover our five star operations in pristine diving locations from the stunning reefs in the Indian Ocean in Al Aqah, Fujairah, to the majestic fjords of the Musandam. We also offer diving in the spectacular Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. What makes us unique is undoubtedly our team of friendly, talented and professional people from all over the world. Our multi-lingual instructors ensure that diving is fun and safe. Our staff have a down to earth warmth which has earned them a reputation for being authentic, and as many guests tell us, “soul”. In fact, going the extra mile is the hallmark at Al Boom Diving. Divers really appreciate that all equipment is carried on board our dive boats and help is at hand for assembling equipment at all times for hassle-free diving. Our fleet of dive boats are comfortable, with shading and refreshments for maximum enjoyment. We have a specialist in-house maintenance team who are constantly checking boats and equipment to ensure the smooth running of operations. We are proud of our exemplary safety record. At Al Boom Diving, safety is sacrosanct. We never compromise on safety. We have a state of the art workshop where all equipment is serviced to the highest standards. Al Boom Diving also provides the maximum level of insurance cover so our guests can relax, knowing they are taken care of. Al Boom Diving offers unparalleled diving in the best locations in the U.A.E. and Oman every day of the year. For certified divers, we offer boat dives off the stunning reefs in Al Aqah where divers will see teeming marine life including spectacular reef fish, turtles and with a little luck, reef sharks and whale sharks. Al Aqah is our most popular dive destination with reefs including the Martini Rock, Snoopy Island and Dibba Rock as well as two fantastic wrecks. Our commitment to conservation led us to create an artificial reef with our unique Reef Balls Project, which is a valuable ecosystem and a source of scientific research for schools. Guests can also enjoy a 25% discount at the Gonu Bar which is a great place to sit back and relax, right on the beach. Form our more energetic guests, we offer exhilarating watersports and parasailing. Day trips to Al Aqah are great days out. We regularly have dhow trips on the Musandam, which is probably the best diving in the region. Guests love the experience of a traditional dhow, with all the added comfort of ensuite cabins with air conditioning. The on-board hospitality is legendary. For certified divers seeking real adventure, we can offer the thrill of diving with sharks in the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. Get up close and personal with shark species including Sand Tiger and Nurse sharks. Don’t worry, they are perfectly safe! Seeing these magnificent creatures at close range is breath taking. It really is the experience of a life time and creates an understanding of why protecting these ultimate predators is so important. Take the plunge and come face to face with 700 pounds of lean muscle, 300 razor sharp teeth and 100 million years’ worth of evolution. These sharks are waiting for you. It’s perfectly safe, and it’s definitely breath taking. There aren’t many dives around the world that will guarantee you sightings of over 300 sharks and rays all at once. But the Dubai Aquarium can. For those seeking to take the plunge and learn to dive, Al Boom Diving certifies more PADI divers annually than any other school in the G.C.C. taught by the largest team of PADI professionals in the UAE. Teaching is conducted at our purpose built Aqua Center on Al Wasl Road, Jumeriah, in climate controlled pools for added comfort. Open Water dives take place in Dubai and off the stunning reefs in Fujairah. We are renowned for teaching everyone from complete novices to instructors. We also provide transport on our fleet of dedicated buses. Booking diving trips with Al boom Diving couldn’t be easier. We have a dedicated call center which is open 365 days of the year where our friendly team will help you find the perfect diving or snorkeling experience.
