I did 6 dives over 2 days and was pretty happy about seeing a leopard shark and a massive 2m stingray. I chose Octopus because they are the closest centre to Dimaniyat Islands and they go there everyday. Some other centers advertise they go but when you check with them, they don’t offer trips there. Though Octopus can be quite far from Muscat, it ends up pretty good cos you don’t spend too much time on the boat and they can go further north of the islands to explore more sites. Ibrahim is also responsive on WhatsApp so you can communicate easily.

We did a two-tank dive in the Dimaniyat islands. The good: Ibrahim and Ahmed were great! Friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and professional. The equipment was of high quality and in great condition (better than most other rentals we've seen). The snacks and sandwiches were also better than usual. The dive sites were excellent; there was a recent plankton bloom which cut visibility somewhat but meant that there were tons of fish at the site, and a great variety of them too. We saw dozens of species, including cuttlefish and huge eels. The not so good: Kind of expensive for a two-tank dive (it's about the same as other places in Oman, so I guess Oman is just an expensive place for scuba). Also, there was a scheduling snafu and we had to wait a couple of hours for high tide before we could get started. Not a big deal for us because we didn't have other plans that day, but it would be better to be informed about it ahead of time.

We had a great experience at Octopus. Ibrahim and his lovely team gave us a warm welcome, having the impression of beeing part of the familly very quickly. Equipment is in very good condition and prices are competitives compared to the other dive centers in Oman. The Dimaniyat islands are about 20-40 min by speed boat and as known, offers a huge variety of species. I strongly recommend Octopus! Thanks!
