Aqaba Dive Site 11: Gorgone I

This site is an excellent shallow dive in an area covered in coral. There are 3 pinnacles, each with its own ecosystem.

The central pinnacle boasts a busy cleaning station. Down the cora slope there is a large Gorgonian fan coral the site is named after.

To the north you will find a series of table corals and you can also enjoy Hawksbill Turtles that frequent the area. Around the nothers pinnacle there are a shoal of Big Eye Emperors and a large shoal of Sergeant Major fish.

Here a deep gulley full of Fusiliers drops off towards the Japanese Garden.

The mooring is to the south in a sandy patch at 15m. The north-west of the fan coral is currently under survey using down line of the Marine Park boundary buoy in 24m.
