Nikki from Living in Dubai  | Scuba Diver

From England but living/working in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Dive every weekend in the Musandam, Arabian Peninsular territory in the Indian Ocean or in the more northern oceans of the Gulf, Straight of Hormuz... Amazing for Leopard Sharks, Whale Sharks, Turtles and amazing fish life & untouched corrals. Also wicked wall drift dives that get the adrenalin going if you catch the tides right... :oD

Thanks for adding! Now, Dubai moved up on my list of places to visit/dive. Happy trails!

Hi, most of these pictures are taken in Oman. About a 90 minute drive from Dubai. Lots of good wrecks in Dubai but not much else and hardly amuses life as the water has such a very high salt level. Also because of construction over the years, there are no coral reefs and viz is very poor. It’s great to come back to Dubai for a cold beer after a day in Oman :)

Scuba-Smurf - 3/06/2013 11:44 PM
Hmmm... Maybe :) I’m still learning but had some very good teachers. I’ll be happy to try to help :)

Ur really modist about ur art. Like most of the ppl on dive buddy. When I find something to take a photo of under water ill try again. But @ this point I like the vids more. Call me crazy but I like the sound of the bubbles.

Photography is either a love or hate thing. I prefer still shots to video personally, plus viz is very unpredictable out here so to set up a video kit and have less than a few meters viz... So disappointing!

Youll have to post some of your videos on here :)
