Welcome to King Snefro Fleet Liveaboards!

Jackson Reef

(28°00.354' N, 34°28.283' E)

 

Jackson Reef is the most northern one in the Strait of Tiran. On the northern edge of the reef, the skeletal hull of the "Lara" stands as a warning to passing ships.

 

The southern part of Jackson offers a good mooring point. You can choose out of several dives, at Jackson Reef you can do superb wall and drift diving with sights of hammerheads, barracudas, jacks, turtles and open ocean fishes, just keep on looking into the blue waters. Fish life is excellent. Strong current that carry divers along the reef bring plenty of nutrients for reef and schooling fish.

 

When planning this dive your guide will consider that strong currents can be experienced, especially during tidal changes and at the edges of the reef. Pay attention to surface conditions too. Quite often, the outer not protected side of Jackson makes entry to the zodiac or liveaboard a little difficult as it is very exposed.
