Scott Johnson, renowned photojournalist, recently joined the Oman Aggressor for a diving adventure like no other. Sroll down to find out what he had to say about this amazing dive destination and to be blown away by some of the pictures from his trip:
“The Sultanate of Oman, which is bordered to the west by the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, respectively, and elsewhere by the Gulf of Oman to the northeast and the Arabian Sea to the southeast, is the new diving frontier. From endemic marine species, such as Oman anemonefish and two-faced toadfish, to previously unexplored dive sites, including wrecks with unknown names and histories, Oman offers ‘off the beaten path’ experiences day and night. Recreational diving and general tourism, for that matter, are relatively new concepts for the Omani people. The country has much to offer to adventure-hungry tourists looking for something other than cookie cutter, run-of-the-mill tours.
Dives during my recent stay aboard the Oman Aggressor had me seeing spots throughout the charter. Enormous, free-swimming honeycomb morays basically rule the Omani underwater world while graceful eagle rays cruise overhead. Tiny, juvenile yellow boxfish hide within the spines of urchins and photogenic leopard sharks (also known as zebra sharks) lounge in sandy channels. Each and every dive off Oman represents an opportunity to discover something new, something breathtaking.” – Scott Johnson.
