Fasma Abu Fendera

Overview

The name Fasma means a canal between two reef blocks that can a boat can pass through. Fasma Abu Fendera consists of two large main reefs and many small blocks, which are covered beautifully. The maximum depth is 25 - 30 meters - the shallow, sandy area around 6 - 8 meters.

Description

The boat anchors in the lagoon. One can be brought with the Zodiak through the canal and be dropped close to the ergs (coral heads). With the reef to the right shoulder, it goes towards the canal, where you can find a few meters from the entrance, within 15 - 20 meters depth, a series of madrepore blocks that are beautifully covered with corals.

Also in the mouth and in the canal an extraordinarily beautiful coral region has emerged. The towers are completely covered with soft corals in all colors. Here you should take the time to look for slugs. Time flies here and you don`t know where to look first.

Towards the end of the dive you cross the canal towards the boat and can comfortably end the dive in the shallow area.

Around the ergs are found batfish, boxfish, in the sandy bottom crocodile fish and blue spotted stingray hide away.

Due to the low depth the visibility can be affected sometimes by waves and currents.
