Generally speaking the dives are drift dives, the boat picks up the divers at the end of every dive. Most dive sites are gentle slopes located around islands or headlands where the best diving can be found. Usually you can find hard corals within the first 10 meters, it then gradually fades to soft corals. In the Musandam you can find purple and blue whip corals, which are endemic to the region. For photographers the blue, purple and the emerald water of the Musandam provides an interesting contrast of colors, which can result in unique pictures that stand out from the regular diving photos.
