Whilst many confuse Dubai to be the capital of the UAE, it is actually Abu Dhabi that is the financial, cultural and political capital! Ideally built along the Persian Gulf, Abu Dhabi has a plethora of things to see and do during your visit here. Keen to learn more about snorkelling in Abu Dhabi?
1). What the Water Is Like
The Persian Gulf has and will continue to attract tourists because of the clarity of the surrounding waters! There’s also little to no current movements, so it’s safe. While you’re sightseeing Abu Dhabi, if you’re looking for accommodation there are a plethora of options like Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara for instance.
2). Marine Life in The Waters
There’s plenty of life in the sea thanks to the numerous coral reefs which encourage it! Expect to see eels, seahorses, turtles, starfish and also, perhaps one of 2,500 dugongs who call the area home!
3). How to Get Snorkelling
There are plenty of facilities and resorts which provide snorkelling amongst various other amenities! Many of these will provide boat services to the closest designated region.
4). Things to Bear in Mind
If you forget your snorkelling gear, fret not! Most facilities provide excellent gear! Bear in mind that you’re in a Muslim country and while there is no enforced dress code, respect local culture and dress accordingly.
