Our boats are all custom built, beautiful and comfortable traditional Dhows. These boats offer both a shaded area as well as an equally comfortable, pillow strewn 'sunbathing' area, allowing you to experience and appreciate the beauty of the Mafian coast as well as making it to the dive site in good time. The boats always set off with emergency oxygen, comprehensive first Aid kits, life jackets and mobile phones. Each boat is also equipped with an easy access ladder. All our captains have extensive experience on Mafian waters and are more than competent to deal with any issues that arise. We always offer water, tea and coffee on the boats as well as a few small snacks.
You will find top quality, well serviced and maintained rental gear here.
We offer Mares Vector and Scubapro T-One BCD's and Scubapro MK2 regulators.
There is a wide selection of 3mm wetsuits, both long and short of H20, Subgear and Seacsub brands.
