SCUBA DIVE AT INCHCAPE 1


Originally known as Gray Swift 2, this boat was built in the USA by Halter Marine and shipped to Dubai in the early 70s. She began her service in Ras al-Khaimah. She was moved to Dubai in 1991 and renamed Inch Cape 1. The vessel was utilized by Inchcape Shipping Services to transport crew and supplies to and from ships, oil platforms and rigs in both Dubai and Fujairah. She ended her service in 2001. The decommissioned boat was later purposely sunk by InchCape Shipping Services to create an artificial reef. It now lays on the sandy bottom at a depth of 30m.

The wreck has been transformed into a big mass of marine life. Venture inside the shipwreck for a chance to see moray eels, soldierfish, boxfish, snappers, yellow jacks, pennant fish, red big eyes, pufferfish, and barracuda. Explore how this fascinating ship has become a functional part of UAE’s underwater ecosystem.

This wreck is a specialist activity that is open to qualified certified divers seeking a challenging and rewarding diving experience. Divers who love underwater digital photography will enjoy capturing the vibrant underwater scenes with their cameras. Divers can expect visibility of 10 meters.
