ABOUT ANGAROSH

Edit
In short

Angarosh is a stunning dive site featuring a spectacular coral wall and deep blue open waters patrolled by large groups of grey reef and hammerhead sharks that will make your heart race. Keep close to the reef and pay attention to the currents, as they can be strong at times and change direction unpredictably!

East side:

The zodiac will take you to the north end in the early morning. You start the dive on the east side and drift southward. Due to the exposed location, you can expect moderate to strong currents most of the time. There are weak currents as well, but those are exceptional cases. But have no fear, this is an action-packed dive site even when the current is weak.

After admiring the show offered by the sharks, head back to the wall covered with soft coral and enjoy the frenetic clouds of anthias as you continue your dive. The sunbeams illuminate the shallow reef top (in 5-7 metres of water), creating a gorgeous colour palette. When the current is weak, this area becomes a snorkeler’s paradise. There are large, healthy table corals, juvenile napoleon wrasses, and thousands of brightly coloured fish – what more could you want!?

Here, you will forget the passage of time. Only the alarm of the dive computer will remind you that, at some point, the tank will eventually run empty. The dive finishes on a small anemone colony.


South Plateau:

This dive site features a small plateau that drops with two steps to about 45 m. Begins the dive by gliding down on the east side of the plateau. There’s a school of barracuda standing head to the current that lets you forget about time as you admire it suspended into the blue. You can also see hammerhead sharks. Angarosh, which means “mother of the sharks, ”righteously deserves its Arabic namesake.
As you approach the plateau itself, you can ascend to a shallower depth and explore the forest of whip corals and coral heads. You can also head out to the reef’s wall once again. Angarosh is known for its strong currents, so you should have solid diving experience and good buoyancy control before attempting a dive here.
