Hi there,
will move next month to Dubai. Been doing scuba for some few years, but never had the opportunity to dive in that area of the world.
Any recommendation for a good scuba club in Dubai?

According to a friend if you do a course at Jumeirah Beach Hotel you get use of the facilities. There is also Al Boom on Al Wasl Road-I think I've posted about this before and left numbers etc.

Al Boom Diving - Aqua Centre P.O. Box 30439 Dubai, United Arab Emirates Tel: (971) 4 3422993 Fax: (971) 4 3422995 E-mail: abdiving@emirates.net.ae

I've also heard there is good diving on the east coast (Fujairah) if you are here for a while and can make the trip.

I have some uncertainty about Dubai. Been there few times for work... but I know very few people there. :?

On the other hand, my new job there is great, but... :lol:

just broke up with girl... and will move there alone and a bit down... :cry:

Will see how it works... :shock:

.....mmmhh..... most important tough, will stop complaining right now...!

Anyone really into scuba, let me know and we can plan something together... have no partner now and in scuba it's a must!

Dear all

Scuba is the one thing I'm so much looking forward to in Dubai besides Dune bashing :P

Heard a lot about scuba diving in that region and can't wait to experience it myself, after some years of mainly diving in the cold and dark waters of Switzerland :wink:

I'm pretty sure, we will enjoy it!

Have a great day
Nic
