What Our Customers Say

I have been diving with Neil Murphy for the past 10 years in the Musandam. Together we explored new dive sites along the coast and into the straight of Hormuz. From whale sharks, sharks, rays, large schools of fish to the little creatures of the sea like squids, turtles lobsters or seahorses, there is never a dive short of surprises. But moreover Neil is not just an ordinary dive buddy – he listens and watches his surroundings, suavely navigating the waters of the Musandam. He is one of those buddies I want to have with me if a dive gets turbulent !

Neil is, without question, the deity of diving in the UAE! A calm, confident and conscientious guide and instructor, who is also friendly and makes diving fun. 

He is great with people of all levels – from beginners to seasoned pros – enabling you to push your own personal boundaries, without compromising on safety. 

So, whether you’re a novice or a natural, you NEED to try diving with Neil; we wouldn’t dive with anyone else.

Coral Reef Conservation Course

Thank you Freestyle Divers and in particular their Marine Biologist James Campbell for the excellent course!👌🏻 Designing and building the structure, placing it on the bottom of the sea, collecting coral fragments and finally planting them on the nursery, it was all a very rewarding experience and let this be the first of many more to come! I can highly recommend engaging with Freestyle Divers if you want to contribute to the marine biodiversity and conservation around Dibba! #TeamEco
