Eel Garden

Site of the famous " pinnacle " - Named after the myriads of garden eels resident in the sand and grass areas here. One of the largest populations in the Red Sea!This provides an excellent area for photography. There is a sandy slope down to 20m (covered in garden eels - you need to stay still for them to appear) where there is a fantastic display of black corals. There are several small pinnacles on the slope. One of these has an amazing reputation for the more unusual marine life. Including Maurice the moray eel with his famous cleaner shrimp Jacques. He will give you an underwater manicure if you remain still.
