Diving in Fujairah (AED 250)

Diving in Fujairah

Martini Rock and Shark Island – Often dived as a pair, these sites lie 25 minutes by boat south of Al Aqah, In Khor Fakkan. One of the best sites in the U.A.E, Martini Rock is a large pinnacle covered in corals. It reaches a depth of 22 metres and rises to 3 metres below the surface. Green Sea Turtles can be seen fairly frequently at Martini Rock where they feed on the coral. The pinnacle is saturated with schools of fusiliers, sergeant majors and bannerfish. The site is a popular area for groups of Niger triggerfish, damselfish and anthias. Colourful hawkfish, Arabian angelfish and timorous cornetfish can be seen regularly at the deeper areas, while moray eels, lionfish and scorpionfish are numerous. Cuttlefish can be seen in pairs while broometail wrasse and parrot fish add a flash of colour. Large starfish, sea urchins and crown of thorns cover the rocks. Coral coverage and diversity is fantastic, with green and purple whip coral, soft pink tree corals, orange and purple teddy bear corals and even some black coral. Black-tip reef sharks, spotted eagle rays and even guitarfish are seen occasionally at Martini Rock.
