A mere half an hour away from Oman Dive Center, Al Munasir was sunk by the Royal Navy of Oman in 2003 and is slowly developing into a beautiful dive site. This 3000 ton vessel -originally built in England- is 84 meters long and 14.5 meters wide. Still in one piece, the ship sits upright on the sandy bottom rising up from 26 / 30 meters to 6 meters below the surface. The site is a favorite for large schools of snapper and schooling goat fish. You do need to have an Advanced Open Water certification card if you are planning to dive this wreck.

Diving al year around, closest city Musqat. Awesome wreck of a troop transportation wessel sunk on purpose, 100m long with very nice penetration possibilities. Lots of fish,rays,nudis,seahorses,softcoral and more. Highly recommended dive.
A nice wreck, but the visibility is limited. See the attached video for more information on the Al Munassir wreck, Oman.
I am the diver in the yellow & black wetsuit in the photograph. I am diving with my buddy Ziad. This wreck is a 'MUST-SEE' dive site. You need at least 3-4 dives to properly explore the wreck, and then you need to penetrate and explore further. Absolutely wonderful wreck to dive.
