Abu Dabbab North

Abu Dabbab NorthThe Abu Dabbab North are the three northern most reefs part of the Abu Dabbab reef group. In total there are six reefs, numbered one through six by the local fisherman. The site is quite shallow with a maximum depth of about 20m and is popular after having visited Elphinstone, which is about 5 nm away.


A couple of interesting features for the site are the two coral gardens one on the eastern and one on the western side of the reef. A small wreck, the Heaven I, a liveaboard that sank there in 2003 can be seen lying between the two reefs.


There are some caverns in reef 2 (middle one on the map), but they branch out and are very narrow, so penetration is not recommended unless you are an experienced cavern diver.
