More images from Saudi Arabia

I have added more images from my two trips to the Farasan Banks in Saudi Arabia. The database now contains over 240 images from this pristine and rarely dived destination.



Posted on Mar 1, 2009

This time I have added mainly wide angle shots, to make the selection of images from Saudi Arabia more complete. There are also numerous topside images.

The pristine, colourful reefs of Farasan Banks are teeming with life, and the area is known for its variety of sharks - but even the macro life was surprisingly good.

Whitetips, silky sharks, hammerheads and grey reef sharks are frequent in the area, and even oceanic whitetips, silvertips and whale sharks may turn up!

Sea turtles, squid, schooling barracudas and jacks, moray eels, nudibranchs and a wide variety of reef fish and other creatures are also endemic to the area, which has been virtually undived since Jacques Cousteau and his team visited the area in the 1960-ies.
