In cooperation with 7 Seas Divers, the Coral Suites Hotel Fujairah has launched a number of dive and stay packages, offering a convenient combination of hotel accommodation, transfers and instruction.
On offer are both certification and non-certified courses to enable guests to choose their level of expertise and interest, according to Vikram Rai, Hotel Manager at the Coral Suites Hotel Fujairah.
“For those who just want to dip their toe in the water, we have a Discover Scuba Tour, or, alternatively, there is an Open Water Instruction Course over four days or a three-night package for experienced divers,” he said.
“By working with 7 Seas Divers, we can offer visitors the very best ... the best scuba instruction, access to the best dive sites on the East Coast, and, back at the hotel, the best accommodation and facilities to help them relax after their underwater experiences.”
The one-night Discover Scuba Tour includes a video demonstration, shallow water experience to gain facility with the dive equipment, and then a 30-minute dive up to 12 metres underwater at Martini Bay or Shark Island – after which, participants receive a certificate of completion.
Cost is AED675 per person or AED1,125 for two people, and covers one night’s accommodation in a deluxe suite, buffet breakfast, free internet access, free entry to the Fujairah Tennis & Country Club, scuba kit hire and instruction, snacks on board and free transfers to and from the dive centre.
For experienced divers, a three-night package is available for AED 1,725 per person or AED2,775 for two people, again inclusive of accommodation, breakfast, access to the Fujairah Tennis & Country Club, transfers and two dives per day on sites offshore from KhorFakkan.
