The seas of the Sultanate of Oman occupy an isolated corner of the Indian Ocean, where some of the world's most varied and biologically productive waters are found. In the Gulf of Oman and Arabian Sea, vast open-ocean plains, canyons and trenches of extreme depth abruptly meet the coastline forming underwater cliffs several kilometers high.

This contrasts with the gently sloping continental shelf of the Arabian Gulf and northern Gulf of Oman and has resulted in a great diversity of marine habitats. For scuba divers, the deep drop off and cool water up welling provides an abundance of plankton, making this area a rich feeding ground for a large variety of marine life.

The diving in Fujairah is considered the best in the whole of the UAE and with a reef trailing 55 miles off the coast, most spots are no more than a few hundred feet from the shore. Fujairah is the only Emirate to face the Indian Ocean and which gives you a chance to sample its blood warm waters. The diving is as varied and as interesting as that found in the Red Sea, but is certainly less busy.

The Musandam Peninsula is the northernmost part of Oman jutting out into the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf. Musandam is separated from the rest of Oman by several of the United Arab Emirates - Ras al Khaimah and Fujairah. Musandam more or less begins where the mountains rise from the plains of Ras al Khaimah.
