Aqaba Dive Site 6: Black Rock

From the mooring buoy, swim past the pinnacle to the reef about 18m, then turn north crossing the sandy gulley and picking up the reef slope.

Here you can pick your depth from 15m to 30m. It is best at around 25m on the way out. Follow the reef north at this depth then come up the reef to about 12m. You will be somewhere near the cabbage coral at 14m, you can then work your way back between 9m and 12m.

There are some nice pinnacles close to the fringing reef, you will pass plates put down for coral growth research, then you know you are nearly back.

Watch out for turtles on this dive.

Current can be up to 1 knot.
