|Skill Level:||Guided AOW|
|Max Depth:||30 m|
|Distance from port:||16km north|
The smallest reef in the straits of Tiran. A spectacular drift dive starting on the southern corner of the reef and drifting along the eastern side. A reef wall rich in multicolored coral descending to a sandy plateau at 25 meters.
Impressive gorgonian fan corals home to the long nosed hawk fish and colonies of black coral. This dive site is famous amongst the technical divers for the striking canyon which opens out at a depth of 35 meters and runs parallel to the reef plate.
In good weather conditions it is possible to circumnavigate this reef in one dive. The east wall plunges dramatically to great depths with a mass of brightly coloured soft corals. The west wall is darker with overhangs and caves but is a great drift dive with sightings of Trevally and Tuna in the blue and schooling reef fish close to the reef.
