|This reef comprises of a main block and two smaller blocks, surrounded by solitary small free standing coral pillars. You have a variety of possibilities when diving this small and pretty reef. The main block can be comfortably circumnavigated during the course of a dive, or you could explore the two smaller blocks to be found in a south easterly and westerly direction. You can combine the south westerly block, into a tour of the large and widespread coral gargen that can be found to the west of the main block.
Shaab Claude is famous for its resident family of long nose hawk fish (five in total) and they can be found in a large cluster of fan and brush corals that grow out of a cave in 15m and reach up towards just below the surface, on the southern side of the westerly block. Apart from this there are frequent sightings of napoleon, stonefish, nudibranches, crocodile fish, blue spotted sting rays, lion fish and turtles. With its resident schools of banner, goatfish and snapper it is a very enjoyable afternoon dive.
