United Arab Emirates diving
Yesterday I went diving with my friends Imad and Sunil in Fujairah, one of the 7 emirates in the UAE. We went to Khor Fakkan and dived the Inch Cape 2 and Dibba Rok.
Batfish, locally named Imad!
The Inch Cape 2 is a small but very nice wreck with a max depth of around 20 meters, ideal for what we were planning, Sunil’s final wreck dive for the Wreck dive Instructor specialty.
Inside the Inch Cape 2
The wreck can be penetrated through the bow and there’s plenty of fish on and around the wreck, including various Moray Eels.
During the trip over to the wreck dive site, we spotted at least 4 turtles on the surface.
The second dive of the day was at Dibba Rock, which had a very strong current when we dived it so we had a lovely drift dive. A turtle, moray eels and some big lobsters were seen. Sometimes this is a also a good location to spot black tip reef sharks, but we didn’t encounter any yesterday.
A great seafood lunch was enjoyed after the dives. With thanks at Alla at Blue Planet Diving for providing the facilities.
