ABOUT SHAAB RUMI PRECONTINENT II

Edit
In short

The entry area for this dive site lies a few minutes away from the mooring point by zodiac. This dive starts with a visit to the external part of Jack Cousteau’s mini-submarine station. To access the inside, divide into groups of two to three divers each to avoid being hit by other divers’ fins. Inside the dome, a few portholes allow enough light to naturally illuminate the ghostly environment.

Most of the furniture was taken away, but there’s still a fixed table and, on the bottom, a memorial plaque dedicated to one of Cousteau’s divers. Close to the ceiling is an air bubble allowing you to take out the regulator (pay attention though, the bubble is composed of exhaled air). The visibility around the station is average, approximately 15-20m.

Looking northwards towards the reef wall (right-hand side), you will see the equipment garage (in a depth of 6m). It is accessible and a popular spot for snapshots as divers pass through it. You can keep close to the narrow plateau and swim north, zigzagging through the many coral heads large and small.

Once you reach the entrance to the lagoon (pay attention to the current), turn around and swim back to the station with the wall on your left side in 5-8 metres. Scattered on the bottom, you will find the remains of the former buildings and shark cages covered in lush coral (another great photo op).

If you prefer, you may swim from the station toward the steep wall and dive along it, keeping it to your right. Take a look into the big blue every now and then to keep an eye out for turtles (always check the current first). On the way back, you can swim over the narrow plateau past the remains of the buildings and shark cages. Once back at the station itself, after approximately 45-60 minutes, organise a safety stop and watch the air bubbles rise from the portholes.
The dive site on the narrow plateau is easy and suitable for a night dive (narrow plateau only).
