Seven Sisters dive site has easy entry over the grass to where the reef starts at 2 – 3 meters. Lots of interesting invertebrate life in the shallows…
Swim through the pinnacles and then turn in towards the shore to another set of pinnacles “the Fairy Ring”…. Continue south at 8 meters. Their patchy coral makes way for grass and sand till you will see in 6 meters an M42 anti-aircraft tracked vehicle (“The Tank”) scuttled in September 1999 to create an artificial reef.
With a maximum depth of only 6 meters and just 20 meters from shore. Its ease of access makes it a fantastic site for dive training, novice divers and snorkelers. It's also a great place for practising the art of underwater photography. Located just a short distance from the C-130 Hercules. It's a great ending to an easy dive and a lengthy safety stop. The largely intact structure makes it a visual treat and attracts plenty of reef fish. Several moray eels have also made homes in the wreckage.
Here are seven pinnacles of coral vie for your attention over a solid coral reef. Luckily the depth is only 8-9 meters so you can enjoy the wonders each has to offer. Big Eye Emperor and shoals of Fusiliers live around these pinnacles.
Seven Sisters and the Tank dive site is highly recommended for try dive, discovering scuba diving and snorkelling in Aqaba.
