  • Profile


    Gota Abu Makadi is the closes dive site from Makadi Bay, and located about 10 minutes east of Makadi Bay. A short trip, big biodiversity!

    Sea Conditions

    The dive site is well sheltered from waves and current which come predominantly from the north.

    Dive Plan

    Forget the main reef. It is largely dead. The best route to take is around the ergs. They rise up from a sandy seabed at 10-12m. The most northerly has a large cavern thick with Glassfish.

    Marine Life

    On the ergs, the usual hunters of Glassfish – Jacks, Lionfish and Redmouth Groupers. This place also has the richest sand-dwelling fauna around – Crocodilefish, Flatfish, Stonefish, Spiny Devilfish, Blue Spotted Rays and Seamoths come as standard. On the wall to the north, a Grey Reef Shark is rumoured to hang out, and on the sandy plateau and between the ergs schools of juvenile Barracuda.
