Shag rock situated about a mile south of Sha’ab Ali and 6miles away from the wreck, Thistlegorm, is the name given to a shallow reef marked by a small metal lighthouse on its southeastern side.
The fauna here is particularly interesting and comprises surgeonfish, rabbitfish and nudibranchs.
From here you continue the dive either to the east or west to explore the reef populated by rich fauna represented by jackfish, groupers, snappers, turtles and Whitetip reef sharks or Eagle rays.
On the northern side of the reef on the sandy seabed at 15m, there is a small wreck lying in a south north direction with its bow stranded on the reef.
It is British cargo Kingston sunk in February 1881.
The remains of the engine room with the boiler are still nicely visible whereas the bow area situated at 4m is destroyed.
