Aqaba Dive Site 9: Tarmac Five Barge Wreck

The Tramac Five Wreck was scuttled in 1996 after Alcatel had finished laying the electrical cables to Egypt. It lies not far from the Cedar Pride and when it went down, it landed over the corner of an old sunken fishing boat that has been there since the 1970's.

Although the wreck itself is not much to look at, it is a host to a good variety of marine life: Blue Spotted Stingrays, Frogfish and a good deal more.

The inside is full of banded coral shrimps.

Take tour around here when you dive the Cedar Pride. Do this at the beginning of your dive as it is deeper than the Cedar Pride.
