Global Scuba Conducts Oman Reef Clean-up
 
Global Scuba is the only NAUI dive center in the Sultanate of Oman and specializes in diving at the Daymaniyat Islands. The Daymaniyat Islands are a nature reserve encompassing nine uninhabited islands and have been under the protection of the Oman Ministry of Environment and Climate affairs for the past 14 years. As part of their commitment to the environment sites Global Scuba arranged with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs to conduct a reef-cleaning project.
 
Led by NAUI instructors Abdulla Khalfan and Yousuf R. Al Hossni, the diving staff of Global Scuba, along with two divers from the ministry, took part in the exercise and spent about four hours at the Aquarium—a very popular site in the Eastern Daymaniyat Islands—recovering old fish traps and nets.
 
Monique Borlée and Keith Holt, directors and co-owners of Global Scuba said that they were very pleased at the results of the exercise and plan to carry out similar clean-ups at different sites at the Daymaniyat Islands on a regular basis in the future.
 
The regular cleaning exercises will enhance the attractions of the Daymaniyat Islands, which are rapidly becoming more and more famous in the diving community. They feel it their duty to dedicate resources to the maintenance of the dive sites not only for the protection of the environment but also to make the diving more enjoyable for their clients.
 
Since becoming NAUI Instructors Abdullah and Yousuf have seen the demand for NAUI courses is increasing very well, particularly as the diving is virtually always done within the reserve.
