Aqaba Dive Site 16: Yellowstone Reef

This site was named after the famous Yellow Stones Park in the US, and also because there is a pinnacle which looks yellow from the surface in the shallow area of the reef, plus because there is yellow rock sticking up in the desert about 500m inland from the dive site.

You will also find here two nice pinnacles with lots of red sponges and nudibranches.

Swimming over the deeper reef, you will encounter some huge healthy black coralbushes and lots of Lunar Tailed Groupers.

This site is only accessible by boat.
