New watersports centre opens

May is the perfect month for watersports, it would appear. In partnership with The Diplomatic Club, the all-new Sora Marine Training has just opened, offering a one-stop shop to facilitate all your aqua adventures.

The centre teaches sailing, diving, wakeboarding, water-skiing, wakesurfing and powerboating, all with qualified instructors at the helm. You can take courses, sign up for watersports camps and so much more.

The PADI-certified diving lesson (QR300) includes an introduction to breathing underwater in the pool, and the open water scuba diving course (QR2,000) includes a theory session, a pool session and four sea dives.

For QR1,800, you can take the RYA Standard Sailing Course, taught by qualified, highly experienced instructors. It starts at level one and goes up to level three for adults, and offers a selection of advanced modules. The courses are 12 to 16 hours long and can be completed in two full days in groups of up to six people, or privately.

Sora Marine Training’s wakeboats can be rented for QR400 per hour on weekdays and QR500 per hour on weekends for a maximum of three people. You can learn to wakeboard, wakesurf and water-ski with the help of an instructor if you’re a beginner.

Under the RYA scheme, level one and level two courses are offered. The first level is a one-day introduction to driving powerboats for adults and children from the age of eight up. The second level is a more extensive two-day course, which offers an internationally recognised qualification for adults and children aged 12 and up.

You can opt for the centre’s private kitesurfing tuition off Fuwairit beach for QR650 per hour, too.

Sounds like summer sorted.
