LEARN ABOUT ABT DIVERS.

Who are ABT Divers.

We are part of the Salalah based company Arabian Beach Tourism, which has many activities within tourism. The diving branch has operated in Salalah since 2008. We are currently located in the Crown Plaza hotel since 2014 and from Hilton Resort since 2006. ABT Divers have two boats for diving and watersports activities. From Salalah, we go boat diving in the area between Donkeys Head and Fazayah beach.  Besides boat adventure, we offer shore diving and snorkeling. Driving through desert landscape and off-road trails to the pristine beaches in Mirbat.       

We are a PADI dive-center and offer all courses from Bubble Maker for the young ones (8-10 years) up to the first professional Dive Master level. Our multi-lingual instructors have a wide varity of experiences in guiding and teaching. Among our basic courses we also offer many specialties.

Experienced local guides are available to take you on one of our many watersports activities. ABT offers fishing trips from near our base hotel in Salalah to Mirbat and Taqah for individuals to groups.

What to expect when visiting Salalah.

The nature in this region is just as spectacular as anywhere in Oman. The beaches are white sand and secluded, and the water is warm and filled with life. The diving and snorkeling season begins end of September to middle of May. Water temperature shifts with the months so expect around 21 to 25 C+ in end September, from 28 C to 38 C, so be prepared for warm nice days with high possibility for sun bathing.

The underwater world changes with the seasons. From September to December there will be possibilities to experience Kelp-forest in many of the dive-sites.  During the summer months, June, July and August, the region is under the monsoon influence and the sea is not for swimming or diving.
