VIDEO: Reefs and wrecks in Qatar

With its long history of pearl diving, it is little wonder that Qatar offers great waters for scuba divers.

Clown fish, neudi branch, angel fish, lion fish and of course sea horses are some of the interesting sea creatures that can be seen in Qatari waters. As well as sharks, stingrays and sea turtles.

There are multiple offshore dive sites in the country with both natural and man-made reefs.

“The Old Club Reef just before Sealine Beach Resort is the most frequented as it has a large variety of fish, crustaceans and corals. The Khor Al-Udeid beach reef has the best coral reef among the non restricted dive sites,” one experienced Qatari diver told Gulf Times.
