Dubai Snorkeling

The United Arab Emirates may not be the first place you think of when you’re looking for a snorkeling destination, but the Persian Gulf coast is an ideal spot for a snorkeling adventure. East of Dubai, in the Gulf of Oman, you’ll find clear, calm waters and expansive coral reefs teeming with colorful tropical fish and a wide variety of unique and interesting sea life. Along the east coast, small rock islands like Snoopy Island and Martini Island are popular with snorkelers and divers who come to see tropical fish native to the region like the Yellow Marked Butterfly Fish and Rabbit Fish. Intrepid snorkeling enthusiasts can explore underwater sites off the coast of towns like Fujairah unfettered by crowds. For organized tours, most snorkel outfitters run operations out of Dubai. The best tours in the Emirates offer trips from Dubai to the Sultanate of Oman, where the fjords of Musandam offer incredible snorkeling adventures with clear, placid waters and beautiful natural sights.
