Fahal Island or Shark Island is a large island 4 km offshore from Muscat's popular tourist beach. It is a 20 minute boat ride from the dive center. Smaller in area than Bander Khairan it boasts equally excellent diving, with bays containing many varieties of hard and soft corals. For the more adventurous there is a cave swim-through, a wreck at 30m and deep reefs down to 40m, where schools of barracuda can be found. Sharks can be often be seen basking on the sand banks, giant eagle rays gliding effortlessly into the distance, schools of fish in their thousands and if you're lucky you may get to see a friendly whale shark or a traveling orca. At Fahal, you expect the unexpected.
