Aqaba Dive Site 2: First Bay North

The site at the northern end of First Bay has a sandy plain with coral patches and a sloping reef from 12m down to 30m.

Features of note are fantastic coral pinnacles covered in red soft corals at the north end of the site. To find it, look for the big table coral and head north past the old sponge-covered fish cage, keep on a straight line and you can not miss it.

There is a pinnacle at 15m wich is a long narrow pinnacle sticking up from the reef at a slight angle, this can be used as a navigation aid if you are approaching the site from the shore, you will find it due west of the gap in the fringing reef.
