Scuba Diving in the United Arab Emirates
Dive Site: Inchcape 2
Location: Al Fujairah, the United Arab Emirates
Description: Wreck dive
Depth: 17 - 23 metres (56 - 75 feet)
Visibility: 8 - 10 metres (25 - 30 feet)
This wreck was sunk by Inchcape Shipping in 2002 and it is amazing how much has grown on it since then. This is a lovely wreck dive not far from Martini Rock. As you go around the edge of the deck you can see lots of morays, scorpionfish, nudibranchs and little boxfish. The coral is bright yellow, pink and purple in places. It looks particularly beautiful where it has grown over the tyres on the side.
If you look carefully, you can see some beautiful nudibranchs. Plus the railings and the ropes have on them crabs which are really well camouflaged as they have things growing on their shells.
The water was about 26 degrees in April
