Whether you live in Oman or are looking to come here on holiday, taking to the sea is essential for truly experiencing the wonder of this most beautiful of nations. We make it our mission to facilitate this for as many people as possible with a wide range of watersport activities to suit all tastes, budgets and abilities.
Whether your aim is to experience the thrill of learning new skills closer to shore, explore the breathtaking island scenery, or discover an underwater paradise, there is something for everyone.
We offer six key activities and services:
Oman has some of the most perfect conditions in the world for learning to sail. The azure tropical waters of the Oman Sea are warm and clear, the winds light and steady, and the sun shines all year round.
An extensive range of sailing courses is offered by Oman Sail at three uniquely different sailing school venues at Marina Bandar Al Rowdha, Musannah and The Wave – Muscat.
A team of highly qualified Omani dinghy instructors teach in both English and Arabic. All tuition follows a special sailing syllabus created and launched by Oman Sail and recognised by the world's governing body for sailing, the International Sailing Federation (ISAF).
We can offer private tuition, corporate packages and powerboat tuition.
Exploring Oman under sail offers a fresh perspective from the usual tourist trail. Largely undiscovered, the dramatic, 1,100-mile coastline with its secluded coves, beautiful sandy beaches, enchanting desert islands and extraordinarily rich marine life is undoubtedly best explored by sea.
As the premier charter company in Oman and the only company to offer bareboat as well as skippered charters, Oman Sail Yacht Charter is renowned for delivering a personalised and professional service.
An extensive range of bespoke sailing trips, day and overnight cruises are available, with a choice of three different types of charter boat.
Oman is one of the best dive destinations on the planet with a spectacularly beautiful underwater world teeming with life. Oman Sail is proud to offer a full spectrum of internationally certified dive courses in this extraordinary marine environment. Oman boasts an abundance of live coral, a rich and astonishing variety of marine life, including an array of turtles, dolphins, whales, sharks and mesmerising annual migrations of fish. It is yours to discover from sheltered mainland and island anchorages, beautiful secluded bays and sandy beaches, mangrove inlets and stunning rocky outcrops.
The Oman Sail Dive Centre is based in Mussanah at the prestigious new Mussanah Millenium Hotel and Watersports resort, just an hour from the best dive sites in Oman. Foremost among these is the Unesco recognised Damaniyat Islands Marine Nature Reserve and Kharãbah Island’s aptly named “Acquarium”.
The Dive Centre is run by a team of highly experienced dive professionals certified by the internationally recognised Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). There are nine different courses available, ranging from 'Discover Scuba Diving' to 'PADI Dive Master Course'.
