Shaab Ambar

Overview

Sha’ab Ambar is a massive reef system with a lagoon in the middle that is perfect for a night dive at overnight mooring.

Description

In the north-west a drop off is falling into the deep blue. The wall is beautiful overgrown with colourful gorgonians.

At the south-east lies a very nice plateau. A sandy area on which, when there is a mild current, you can find shoals of unicorn fish. Great barracudas coming to catch the weaker fish and the giant dog tooth tunas come herding their youngsters. Not to forget the sand eels and the small white tip reef sharks.

At the drop off, when the current permits, one will often be rewarded with the super stars: schools of hammer heads and the odd grey reef sharks!
