Only the boat is found in Khiran. We do not have an office or shop at the Marina. Do not arrange a speculative visit as security will not allow you access. All initial communication should be made through the website.
Just before you reach the end of road 278, having passed the three water towers on your right, on your right-hand side you will see a large blue board with the text "Khiran Resort" in white and "A-B-C-D&E" in red. Turn right immediately beyond this board. This takes you to the gates into the marina. Once through the security check you continue straight on until where the tarmac ends in a T-junction. At this junction turn right and keep right until you reach a lift-up barrier. Passing under the barrier, turn right. Drive past the boat parking area and the boat washing area. After unloading you are requested to return your car to the main marina car park near security. By preference the boat will be located in one of the berths closest to you. If not, proceed to the next set of berths.

The guards at the main (first) gate respond to smiles and either the name Mr Neil Moroney as boat owner or Kuwait Mantas. Your name however should form part of the guest list, which they will check against. Please note, you can not turn up speculatively. There may be a guard at the second gate, and he may require you park in the space adjacent. Request entry to unload, then return the car (without fail). Meeting point is near the "P"; the slip is under the balloon, while the boat is parked under the yacht symbol. The Al Boom shop is under the basket - you need to drive around the enclosed boatyard.
Stocks Aqualung, Best Divers, Hollis, Sherwood, Suunto, and some other brands. Good for hire of equipment.
In Salmiya, Block 1. From the traffic lights at the cross roads where the Arabian Gulf Street (Road 25) bends in Salmiya take the exit (Road 104) towards the coast. Pass the Sheesha resturant "Chic Cafe" on your right. Take the next obvious right turn (not the one before that which requires a sharp turn). Ahead you will see the building of "Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research Mariculture and Fisheries Department". At the end of the road, turn right. Pass the main entrance to Kuwait Sea Sport Club, and the blue gate with a PADI flag above it, both on your left. Park in one of the bays on the right. To get to the shop, go through the blue gate, turn left, and go through the reception office. After leaving this office, the shop will be on you right.
Opening hours 17:00 to 23:00.
