historic shipwrecks that dot the sea bed
Buckelwale und andere Meerestiere haben die Gewässer um die Hallaniyat-Inseln zu ihrem Lebensraum gemacht. Zusammen mit mehreren historischen Schiffswracks, die auf dem Meeresgrund liegen, machen sie diese Gegend zum perfekten Tauchrevier.
The Hallaniyat Islands offer untouched dive sites, and new ones are being discovered all the time.
Tourism in the area is relatively new and the islands are only visited by liveaboard, giving you the chance to be one of the first to explore this untouched area. The reefs are covered with hard and soft corals with colourful residents including plenty of macro life. The seascapes include walls, spur and groove and some overhangs with a lot of fish life. Diving highlights are undoubtedly the opportunity to be in the water with the resident population of humpback whales but may also include encounters with manta rays and other whales. Anything is possible here.
The islands boast a healthy marine life and you’ll see huge schools of fish at most dive sites. Huge pods of dolphin are often seen as are honeycomb morays and green turtles. There are also opportunities to explore some wrecks. The diving in the area is exploratory and suited to experienced divers.
