 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Dibba Rock is a great training site – but that does not limit it to new divers. Experienced divers can practice buoyancy in water 3 or 4 metres deep. It is a great way to keep your skills sharp.

Possible to see Arabian Angelfish, Sea Turtel, Butterflyfishn and many different kinds of fish as well as the odd black tip reef shark that cruise the reefs.

Turtles often sleep in the area, but don't try to wake them. It is dangerous for the turtle. Look out for "jawfish" (goby) with their big eyes, heads and mouths – they are not exactly pretty. And the clownfish are fun to watch, but very protective and like to bash your mask as a warning to stay away.
