Explore aquatic treasures with a few handy lessons

Diving with Al Boom

The wonders of Dubai’s marine scene, from its sea-life to its aquariums, is not something that can be easily missed on a family day out. While it’s fascinating watching a huge stingray glide past you in The Dubai Mall, the clear glass in between doesn’t give you that proper “up close
and personal experience”, so how about jumping in with them instead?

With Al Boom Diving, families can learn how to swim with the fish-ies (in the lighter sense of the phrase) with their scubadiving programme. Whether you’re a young guppy who’s only learning the ropes or a veteran of the ocean looking for your PADI divemaster certificate, this dive shop
and school will sort you out.

While the establishment is the one behind the terrifying – but truly amazing – shark diving experience at Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, it’s the diving trips that take place day and night that will give you a taste of what lurks beneath the ocean. From schools of fish to strange critters of the sea, these trips, usually taking place in Fujairah, are a must-try for divers.

Taking on Dubai’s lengthy list of seafood venues isn’t the only way to explore the fruits of the ocean.
