Divers over some of the Jolanda's cargo

Video footage of Yolanda Reef (Ras Mohammed National Park, Red Sea)


Here are two little panoramas I took while diving Yolanda Reef, which is in the Ras Mohammed National Park. Yolanda Reef is fetchingly adorned with toilets, bathtubs, and other cargo from a ship called the Jolanda that ran aground there in 1980. It’s an amazing dive site! The visibility was remarkable when we visited.


Finally, here are some soft corals at Yolanda Reef, snapping open and closed in the current. We saw these everywhere, and I was hypnotised by their movements. They look like a sentient vase of flowers!
