Al-Lith Resort, Al-Lith West Coast kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

This is the Dive Village of Dream Divers and just one of our Four Dive Bases in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Al-Lith Dive Village is not a Hotel it is a safe, comfortable dive base for diving the Northern Farasan Banks, if you leave your key with the cook your room will be made up cleaned and towels changed daily, if you don’t leave your key then not.

If you are not well travelled, with a sense of humour go to Egypt, everything about the Kingdom is relaxed, the dining, the living, the diving, your dining room is the T.V. lounge, it is open for you 24 hours a day, the cappuccino machine is there for your use, the refrigerators are also open, take what you want, if there is something you require that is available, and not there we will purchase it, there are no hidden charges. If you have a dive site that you wish to dive again just tell your guide it’s your vacation if your group agrees no problem for us, your Captains and crews are as the diving fantastic, the boats are good ,safe and fast,

Starting in January the water temp is 32 deg slowly dropping, in February the sharks are starting to come up into the shallow water, in March as can be attested by many of our well travelled German guests who i am glad to say had a sense of humour, the Whale Sharks and sardines are starting to come to the area this until the end of May into June ( although in the beginning of this month October we had three Whale Sharks also seen by well travelled etc etc, German guests). The temp is dropping to around 28deg so you will require a wet suit of 3 to 4 mm with hood this until June when you can go to 3 mm then in July until November board shorts and surf vest or rash guard. 

Warning this is the South the Farasan Banks, do not even think the North is the same, more about the North in another section.

Best regards Eric and Crews.

Please be aware from the Dive Village to the Banks in good weather is two hours, but the diving is well worth the journey, our tanks are 12liter All filled to 3,200psi or 200bar and all valves are standard we do not use DIN, if your regulator is DIN please bring your adaptor.
