Whilst you usually need to be a qualified scuba diver to experience this, we do this by climbing aboard the Middle East's only commercial submarine trip. Picked up from just outside the hotel we motor out just like any other boat before suddenly fastening the hatches and descending as deep as 22 metres for a 2 hour excursion. Through portholes and viewing windows we are able to right up close to this amazing sea life, all the while staying bone dry! (B,D)
