Habili Qab Isa

Overview

As with all habilis, the reef roof of Habili Qab Isa is under water - here in about 5 meters.

Description

Depending on the current, the zodiac sets you down in the west or east over the south plateau, which gently drops from around 22 meters to the southern edge at 40 meters. Here you should be on the lookout for the big hunters - hammerheads make their rounds in deep blue.

If you start the dive on the east side of the plateau you will meet two large gorgonians and cross it to the west side in a zigzag course between the blocks of stone corals. Above the plateau are schools of barracudas, buffalo-head parrotfish, long-nose tufted perch and white-tip reef sharks are in wait for prey.
