  • Beautiful live coral mostly at Maha’s island, Hanish Sughira, High Island and Abu Ali Islands.
  • Sharks, big Barracudas and giant Groupers mostly at South-West Rock, Maha’s Reef, Cust Rock, Pin Rock, Ship Rock and Three-foot rock.
  • Lots of Red Snappers and tasteful Lobsters as in Shark Island and Hanish Al Kubra Cliff.
  • Big Jaks and Tunna in incredible quantities as in Adder Ail Island.
