Abu Galawa Soraya


A beautifully overgrown old sailing yacht, coral blocks and canyons, many different reef fish and all this in pleasant depths between seven and 21 meters. "Abu Galawa Soraya" has a lot to offer and the boats can moor at already laid mooring lines.


A sailing yacht from the USA sank at "Abu Galawa Soraya" in 1980 and has since been colonized by very many soft and hard corals. An incredible sight in 17 meters depth on a length of 15 meters. But not only the great overgrown wreck convinces here.
Needlefish, blue spotted stingrays, red sea fusiliers and free swimming giant moray eels can be spotted and admired at this dive spot with a little luck. What will please many - "Abu Galawa Soraya" is also suitable for a night dive and what better way to see the various wreck dwellers than at night!
Equipped with light we can see inside the wreck also during the day the many glass fish that have made the yacht their own for a long time. Also on the sandy bottom many surprises are waiting between the coral towers and blocks.


  • Sunken sailing yacht: It is small, but great vegetation, numerous inhabitants and we find it in the southwest.

From the mooring we dive to the wreck to visit this attraction first thing. We continue with the reef on our right shoulder until we reach a sandy strait. It leads us into the large lagoon like area. Here we can have some fun until we return to the ship heading southwest.

Night dive

As already mentioned, "Abu Galawa Soraya" is also suitable for a night dive. Since the wreck is very close to the mooring, we start from the boat, explore the reef wall and the sailing yacht, discover all kinds of nocturnal marine life and then dive back to the boat.
