Gota Wahed/Etnien Abu Fendera

Overview

The name Gota means "coral block". Wahed and Etnien are numbers, so one and two.

Description

The blocks are not very far apart on a huge plateau, nevertheless you should plan 2 dives in any case. Around the two blocks the mostly sandy bottom is about 18 meters deep. You can be brought out of the lagoon by zodiac and dropped off at different places.

At Gota Wahed there are several small coral blocks on the western side in 15 - 20 meters, which are very worth seeing. There you should start the dive.

Back at the big block, follow it with the reef on the right shoulder and let the zodiac pick you up again between the two blocks.

The second dive starts where you left the first one - between Gota Wahed and Gota Etnien, where again small coral blocks can be found, which should be examined carefully. The dive continues again with the reef on the right side towards the east.

Hotspots

  • Besides blue spotted stingrays and moray eels, you can also find
  • pyjama slug among other snail species. It is therefore worth taking a closer look at the blocks to find these little fellows.
