|Situated on the north western side of this long reef is the site Shaab Sheer West. The boats moor up on the sheltered southern side and the reef starts just below the surface and drops to 15m where a vast coral garden begins. Within this coral garden you will possibily see blue spotted stingrays, nudibranches, scorpion, crocodile and lion fish, as well as a patrolling napoleon and one of the biggest giant morays in the Red Sea.
Moving around this cliff like wall in a westerly direction you will pass some impressive hard coral growth, where you may meet a playful pair of octopus before moving into a small canyon. This canyon is quite narrow and its depth of only 10m can be difficult to swim through if theres a swell or current, but its worth in when you get onto the other side.
You will see a large coral garden dropping down in terrace form towards the drop-off. Here you will see schooling masked butterfly fish, tunas, barracudas, large grouper and the occasional reef shark. Near the moorings is a small natural lagoon affectionately know as the "aquarium" with its max. depth of 5m and crystal clear water ideal for off gasing and snorkellers.
