What is the best spots in Qatar? Do you visit these spots?
My favorite dive site is Perculies, its a site reached only by boat, around 40/50 mins from shore. It's a huge ship that had a fire on board, half sinking the ship. The point of the ship remained pointing out of the water until the coast guard purposly blew up the middle to seperate it. Now its attracted a huge range of fish. Huge skools of barracuda and some smaller tropical fish.
