SHARM ROCK DIVE SITE


This diving site is located offshore, approximately 15 minutes South of the Meridian Fujairah with a depth of 10 - 22 meters. Sharm Rock is also known as “3 Rocks Pinnacles” or “3 Sisters” because of its three small outcrops of rocks that peek above the surface. The pinnacles that lie close together has a crack that measures 150m long and 100m wide. There is also a 4th rock but only the more experienced divers venture there occasionally.

The rocks are enveloped in soft corals which provide a haven for a multitude of marine life. Common dive sightings include snappers, shoals of jacks, snapper, large-mouth mackerel, and fusiliers. These creatures are some of the favorite prey of large tuna that hunt these waters. Other interesting marine creatures found here are lionfish, batfish, boxfish, shrimps, turtles, morays, and black-tip reef sharks. Occasional whale sharks are spotted here during warmer seasons. Stingrays can also be spotted on its sandy outskirts.

Divers can expect 5-20m visibility. Water conditions in this area are normally very calm. Its shallow depths make it ideal for different levels of diving experience. It is also a popular site for night diving.
