This reef is located 10 minutes east of Abu Galawa Kebir. Divers appreciate it not only for the beautiful panoramas in the coral gardens, main attraction is a cave, which is good to dive and has great light shows.
Shaab Claude is about 150m long and 60m wide with a maximum depth of 24m. Boats usually anchor in the south, because there is the cave entrance in 10m depth. Also most of the fish can be found in the southern part of the reef. Here live e.g. batfish, triggerfish, bannerfish, barbels and snappers. Also big napoleons are not rare.
Often a current from the north makes diving on the west side above the coral garden difficult or impossible. After a bumpy ride by Zodiac to the channel and the anemone colonies, you will be rewarded with a nice drift dive on the east or west side.
- Cave: Such images are usually only known from pictures or videos, but if you can really see the beauty for yourself in this cave, your pulse will beat faster - guaranteed!
