More about Sharm Rock

Sharm Rock is located offshore, approximately 15 minutes South of the Meridian Fujairah with a depth of 10 – 22 meters. This dive site is also known as “3 Rocks Pinnacles” or “3 Sisters” because of its three small outcrops of rocks that peek above the surface. The pinnacles that lie close together has a crack that measures 150m long and 100m wide. There is also a 4th rock but only the more experienced divers venture there occasionally.

The rocks are enveloped in soft corals which provide a haven for a multitude of reef fish such as snappers, large-mouth mackerel, fusiliers, and shoals of jacks which are some of the favorite prey of large tuna that hunt these waters. Other common sightings include the lionfish, boxfish, jawfish, and schools of bannerfish. You can also spot opportunistic predators like moray eels that like to feed on crustaceans, squid, and cuttlefish that are abundant in the area. It’s also possible to encounter turtles, black-tip reef sharks, and stingrays on the sandy outskirts. Occasional whale sharks may be spotted during the warmer seasons of the year which is a real treat for divers and snorkelers alike.

Water conditions in this area are normally very calm and you can expect 5-20m visibility. Its shallow depths make it ideal for snorkeling and different levels of diving experience plus it is also a popular site for night diving.
