    Thank you for sharing. We did some dives from Salalah in December 2016, had a nice time and even dived in the Kelp.

    Thanks for sharing @MarkH

    Nice large seahare at 8:39. Did you spot any nudibranchs?

    Which dive centre did you use for air etc.?

    I did see a small nudibranch, but I didn't get any video of it since it was tiny and white so in the video it would have just looked like an overexposed dot. I went with ABT (Arabian Beach Tourism) Divers. I think they were the only dive operation that I could find in Salalah.

    Thanks Mark.

    I've visited Salalah several times but never dived there.

    How were ABT as a dive centre?

    They were fine. I had no complaints. I'm not picky. They made us follow a guide around as is common in many countries.
