Scuba diving on Kish Island

by MalenaN Online Now Aug 29, 2005 at 8:09 AM

I hope to visit Iran next year and would like to do some days of scuba diving on Kish Island. I have read that Kish is the only place to dive in in Iran and that there is only one diving centre there. I made a search on Internet to get more information, but all pages coming up only mentioned that diving was possible on Kish.
Does anyone know anything about diving centres and the diving at Kish Island? Is it very expensive?
Does anyone know if there is a cheap place to stay at on Kish?

    Hello Malena,

    Finally you are planning to visit Iran ... this is great. :)

    1) I have no more information abour scuba diving in Kish Island. Just this is the website of a group which has training classes for scuba diving in Kish: iranscubadiver.com/_wsn/page...

    2) Kish is really hot in summers; and it will be more difficult for people who come from northern countries like Sweden. But in the other hand you have this chance to get cheaper prices for accommodation and shopping in summers.

    3) Accommodation and transport is relatively expensive in Kish, when compare with other parts of Iran. Although for shopping you will get better prices than Tehran and other cities in Iran. Kish is mainly a shopping attraction for Iranian tourists, then it's for leisure and fun.

    4) Here you see a list of almost all hotels in Kish which have a website:
    Hotel Maryam (4star): www.maryamhotel.com/eng/index.html
    Hotel Flamingo (4 star): www.kishflamingohotel.com
    Hotel Tamasha (4star): www.hoteltamasha.com
    Hotel Shaygan (4star): www.kishshyganhotel.com/eng/index.html
    Hotel Tatilat (3star): www.tatilathotel.com
    Hotel Alighapoo (2star): www.kishalighapoo.com
    Hotel Fanoos (1star): www.fanooshotel.com
    Hotel Sunrise (1star): www.kishsunrisehotel.com

    Hope this helps you a bit.


    Regards,
    Ali
