Home to pristine corals, wrecks and whales, the Hallaniyat Islands offer untouched dive sites, and new ones are being discovered all the time.
This small archipelago is located off the south eastern coast of Oman the two main islands being Al Hallaniyah and Al Sawda. Relatively untouched and undiscovered, the rugged and barren islands rise from the deep and are home to some small fishing communities.
Tourism in the area is relatively new and the islands are only visited by liveaboard, giving you the chance to be one of the first to explore this untouched area. Diving highlights are undoubtedly the opportunity to be in the water with the resident population of humpback whales but also include encounters with manta rays and sperm whales. The islands boast a healthy marine life and you’ll see huge schools of fish at most dive sites. Huge pods of dolphin are often seen as are green turtles. There are also opportunities to explore some wrecks. The diving in the area is exploratory and suited to experienced divers.
