A sheltered site that offers divers a chance to practise their wreck penetration skills.
This was a landing craft that specialised in carrying water to the villages that weren't able to receive water by road. The vessel was one of a fleet of three boats, each named after one of the villages they frequented with their essential load. The hull ofThe Musandam split with age, and it was decided that the vessel would be decommiss ioned. There was also a light aircraft that had been at Khasab Airport for about two years and the decision was made to load the plane onto the landing craft and take them out to sea to be sunk.
As the wreck has been here for several years, you'll see many shells and a variety of hard corals on it; primarily brain and stag horn corals encrusted around anything they can find, such as the wreck's surfaces, along ropes, and clinging to the metal. As Khasab isn't dived as much as other UAE sites, the fish appear to be quite unconcerned about divers and will swim almost into your face and regulator. Yellow snappers are always in abundance, especially in and around the landing ramp area. You're also likely to spot a couple of clownfish and anemone colonies
