Scuba Diving in the Red Sea

Dive Site: Shag Rock

Location: 27°47'45"N; 33°51'22"E

Description: Reef / drift / wrecks

Depth: 16 metres (52 feet)

Visibility: 40 metres (130 feet)

Rating: ***

Shag Rock is a large circular reef with two small wrecks on it. The Carina is very broken up wreckage of a 19th Century steamship that you drift past quickly. The Kingston is another 18th century steamship, but is more intact than the Carina is. The reef makes quite a good dive with lots of branching coral, butterflyfish, yellow goatfish, sweetlips and sea cucumbers.
