The Nemo Dive Shop that runs this tour is the best. During the good snorkeling season, we go every 2-3 weeks. Nemo always takes us on a wonderful trip. We are experienced snorkelers. But there are new snorkelers on the trips. They take excellent care of everyone. They make sure even weak swimmers have a great snorkel! We have been on 12-15 times over the last 3+ years. Always great!

Excellent place for diving in the UAE. Professional and welcoming instructors, diverse aquatic life, clear water with great visibility. Don’t hesitate to try diving here♥️

The Nemo crew is excellent. They are what makes it such a great trip. Very mindful of safety, but always making sure even inexperienced snorkelers have a good time!
