In the strait between the Sinai Peninsula and the island of Tiran settled four coral reefs: Jackson, Gordon, Woodhouse and Thomas. They are named in honor of the British officers, who once described these places. All reefs except Gordon reef are steep walls, covered with magnificent corals. On the southernmost of the four reefs – Gordon reef – since September 1981 you can see Panamanian merchant ship “Lullya” banked to the left side. You can dive to it during a tour to the Tiran Island from Sharm el Sheikh. In December 1981 one more merchant ship – Cyprus “Lara” – banked to the northern Jackson Reef. In 1996 they began to cut it for scrap, but never brought this work to the end. As a result, up to this day a part of the ship is towering frame with bow section over the reef.
