Liveaboards at Sha'ab Abu Nuhas

Video footage of Sha’ab Abu Nuhas (Red Sea)

Prior to diving some of the wrecks there, we did a lovely reef dive on the sheltered side of Sha’ab Abu Nuhas reef in the Straits of Gubal. A school of beautiful blue fusiliers followed us (or seemed to) for much of the dive, just on the edge of the reef. I found their presence to be very soothing. They are gorgeous fish.


Tony wanted to show me damage to our liveaboard’s hull, caused by repeated blows from waves (not reefs, fortunately!). This is him swimming off under our boat at a brisk clip, and then making the universal hand signal for “the hull has marks on it that look like it’s been struck by something hard”. Did you get that? Me too.
