Abu Gota Ramada

Abu Gota Ramada is also known as the Aquarium. It is a small reef, about 100 by 100 metres with a large submerged mount. You can easily dive around the main mount and explore the numerous smaller mounts surrounding it.

The maximum depth in 20 metres before it drops down to 50 metres+. The reef lies in the middle of the strait and brings in significant amount of zoo plankton allowing the reef to flourish. The area is covered in picturesque soft coral and an abundance of fish.

The reef, due to its shallow depth, is well covered in sun light, allowing for some fantastic photography, especially in the smaller little crevasses found around the various pinnacles. The trick with this reef is to take your time, choose a spot and just wait, the amount of fishes you are able to spot is absolute fantastic.
