Watching this school of neon fusiliers being hunted by bluefin jack and dogtooth tunas was like watching NatGeo on TV  just better. To catch the movement I used a long shutter speed of 1/10th sec

Fairly remote area. To get there one has to fly into Dubai and drive approx. 3 hrs (including border crossing time) to Dive Centre. Extra Divers are the company with thier dive shop alongside the Golden Tulip Hotel Khasab. They have a villa for hire per room at very reasonable rates. The diving is excelent all year round although vis is seasonal. Very good at this time of year. Staff very friendly and proffessional. You have to be an advanced diver for most of the dive sites. Lot of wall and rocky areas to explore. Marine life abundant
