Jackson Reef

By far the most colourful dive site in the Strait of Tiran. This reef is full of colorful and different corals because this is a narrow reef and the currents can pull around it. On the steep wall, you can find an endless amount of soft corals and on the left plateau a fire coral garden.

Again and again, you can meet turtles, snappers, tunas, and barracudas. Further, there are scorpion and lionfish, snails and giant morays on the wall. Also different sharks.
