Where to Learn Scuba Diving in Dubai

Always wondered what lies deep down beneath the ocean’s surface? With a handy PADI scuba diving license, you can explore the waters all across the world! From encountering rare marine life (like a bioluminescent octopus!) to exploring shipwreck sites under the sea, you won’t regret it! Here’s where you can learn scuba diving in Dubai…

Al Boom Diving

Via Facebook | @AlBoomDiving

One of Dubai’s longest-running diving centres, Al Boom Diving lets you get your PADI scuba diving license in just 4 days. The scuba diving centre also has further courses for experienced divers. And once you’ve got your license, you can join Al Boom Diving on their regular diving trips to Fujairah!

Lost Chambers Aquarium

Yep, you can actually go scuba diving in the Atlantis’ Lost Chambers Aquarium! They’ve got scuba diving options for all levels, including a Discovery Dive for beginners, and a Predator Dive (with sharks and rays!) for the advanced divers.

Divers Down UAE

Divers Down UAE is another great place to obtain your scuba diving license, after which you can join them on their diving trips around the Middle East!
