• Aqua Aqua to provide rental and charter services from Al Hamra Marina in Ras al Khaimah

• Dates for new fishing tournament announced, with combined prizes to the value of 10,000AED

Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club has announced the opening of a new rental and charter company specialising in water sport activities. This new business, called ‘Aqua Aqua’, was officially launched at a small ceremony held at Al Hamra Marina in Ras al Khaimah, where they will be based.

With some of the best fishing, diving, and water sport opportunities in the northern emirates, Aqua Aqua will provide a range of services to residents and visitors alike, and Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club Manager, Claudio Schettino highlighted the new dimension the company will bring to the emirate.

“When most people think of diving or fishing they tend to think of Fujairah. What many people don’t realise is that we have an abundance of undisturbed natural ecosystems in Ras al Khaimah, and with the launch of Aqua Aqua people don’t have to go all the way to Fujairah anymore.”

“Aqua Aqua is one of the region’s largest companies to provide a full range of water-based activities and its size and local knowledge make it a first-choice provider for beginners and professionals alike.“

“So whether you are an avid fisherman, experienced diver, or are simply looking to enjoy the thrill of wakeboarding or other watersport activities, Aqua Aqua is able to provide custom-made packages to suit your needs. The company will also run a kayak and paddleboard rental shop, so if people just want to spend a quiet afternoon on the Al Hamra Lagoon, they can do so,” said Mr. Schettino.

In addition to the launch of the new rental and charter services, Mr. Schettino took the opportunity to announce the call for entries for the 2014-2015 Aqua Aqua Annual Fishing Tournament – a new and exciting annual competition that will run monthly from November 2014 to May 2015 at the Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club. With monthly prizes and three overall grand prizes worth a combined value of AED 10,000, interest in the tournament is expected to be high. The tournament schedule is as follow:
