DM`s, Mola-Mola and Seahorse.

The water temperature has dropped faster than expected. Well, we were caught literally with our pants down due to diving in board shorts and rash vests one week and having to break out the 5.5mm wetsuits the week after. There is a plus to this however as it does bring a prehistoric species back. L-R:…

Winter is Coming #notthegot

Indeed we took the title of the blog from a well-known series! The days are mild out in the Musandam and the water temperature is the same as bath water.   October greeted us the same as getting into the ring with Chuck Norris and yelling obscenities about his mother – a great big smack…

Pelagic Soup

We hope you are all surviving Ramadan and this leads us into the new blog. April and May saw some incredible diving in our tiny piece of paradise. The water stayed quite cool well into May but delivered some amazing encounters. We were greeted by large pods of Dolphins on every trip out and a…

A New Year, A New Look

Ok, ok, we know it’s already half way through January, but we wanted to take the record for the most delayed New Years greeting ever. So, now we have explained ourselves, we`d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and prosperous 2017. Hopefully we will see lots more of you all…

Full to the Brim and then some….

We thought the June sharing Dhow would be a little quiet, what with most people clearing out for the summer and all that.  Contrary to popular opinion however, it seems that our clients are very sensible people, very sensible indeed, choosing to escape the Sandpit for the majestic Musandam!  So, with a full boat (so full that yours…

Celebrations and Explorations

With the usual mob on board we expected the demands for top world class diving to be fast and furious.  And they were!  As one by one, two by two they cleared the border post, clarifications as to the plan for the weekend started before we had even left the office, never mind the dhow…

The Week From Hell or From Heaven?

Wow – what a week it has been.  For those of us not used to hard work it has been a baptism of fire and then some. The week started off last Sunday morning already with a busy agenda.  With 7 dhows,  scheduled to go out over the weekend, the week was spent prepping.  With 54…

Mutiny On The Dhow!

As the Blonde Goddess stepped aboard we anticipated a relaxing, refined weekend of diving, sunbathing and chit chat.  However, we forgot that closely following behind would be her lesser half, The Mola-Mola Whisperer.  So much for relaxing.  With the Whisperer on board we would be flogged to death, getting up before (never mind at) the…

The Hunt For Mola-Mola

With one thing in particular on everyone’s mind we were all looking forward to a great weekend ahead. A relaxing few days away from the hubble and bubble of Dubai; no phone signal; no internet coverage; good company; amazing diving, etc., etc. You get the idea. The main topic of conversation on Thursday evening and…
