Bander Khairan is located twenty minutes to the south east of Muscat by boat. The area is a small system of coves and creeks. There are a variety of different dive sites, from 30m drop-offs to shallow coral reefs or swim-throughs beneath huge boulders. There is an excellent wreck dive here, on the Al Munnassir, a 84m landing craft, starting at 8m, lying on the bottom at 30m. It is a fantastic dive and is always brimming with fish, whilst giant honeycomb moray eels roam the gangways.

Sandy beaches and calm waters inside the main area make this an ideal site for picnics or a break between dives. When diving here, you can expect to see spectacular soft and hard corals, turtles resting amongst the reef, giant honeycombed moray eels entangled through the reef, large sting rays lying covered in sand, lobsters lurking from beneath rocks and at the right time of the year, a curious whale shark may just come and say hello.
