(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Muriya Oman's leading tourism development company has launched a dive centre at Jebel Sifah as an array of exciting leisure activities at the destination continue to grow. Located within walking distance of the Sifawy Boutique Hotel Extra Divers is operated by German dive tour operators Extra Divers Worldwide and will offer guests and visitors unforgettable dives to nearby sites such as the Munassir wreck and Fahal Islands as well as the reefs at Ras Abu Daoud.

'The new dive centre at Jebel Sifah offers residents guests and visitors a host of exciting underwater adventures for both  novice and experienced and the opportunity to take part in water sports as part of their stay at the destination. We are committed to developing Jebel Sifah into a fully-integrated town by introducing new facilities that combine the natural beauty of the coastline with an ever-expanding variety of attractions. The dive centre will bring new visitors to Jebel Sifah and enhance Oman's reputation as one of the most popular diving destinations in the region' said Bahaa Hefzallah marketing director of Muriya.

Yaqoob al Wahibi general manager of Extra Divers Oman said 'Extra Divers Sifah is an important addition to our portfolio of locations in Oman. We offer guests the chance to learn from experienced male and female instructors who are fluent in Arabic English and German while swimming amongst large schools of fish turtles stingrays leopard sharks moray eels and nudibranchs that thrive beneath the surface in the Gulf of Oman. Departing from Jebel Sifah's first inland marina we organise daily dive sessions where guests can visit a variety of dive sites each day as part of their stay at the destination.'

Extra Divers Sifah operates in line with Scuba Schools International (SSI) and Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) standards with all required equipment available to rent on-site and also offers kayaking snorkelling and jet skiing. The centre allows guests to be inspired by spectacular scenery and explore the unique underwater ecosystem before returning to spend the evening in the relaxing ambiance of Jebel Sifah complete with dining options and retail outlets.
