Description

The islands have been protected as a nature reserve since 1996 and provide an important nesting site for hawksbill and green turtles, as well as a wide range of migratory birds including the increasingly rare sooty falcon, one of the few migratory raptors which actually nests and breeds in the region. Given their protected status, access to the Daymaniyats is restricted, and you’re not allowed to land on the islands from the beginning of May until the end of October Daymaniyat Islands, often called the “ Jewel of the Middle East” offers great dive sites for visitors to enjoy. With most dive sites located along the islands, Daymaniyat Islands offers great dive sites to all level divers, beginners to advanced. Snorkelers will be taken to 2 different snorkeling sites. Departure & Return Location: Seeb Port, Muscat (Google Map) Departure time: 8:30 am (20 min before boats leave) What to expect: -Throughout the year you will see 3 different species of turtles who come since centuries to the islands. -A huge diversity of hard & soft corals. -Common encounters will be honeycomb Murray Eel, sting rays, schools of fish, sometimes black tip sharks. -For those coming during summer our good friend the Whale Shark will definitely be around.
