As a drif dive you’ll have a change to see eaglerays and you’ll find an anemone city that is real nice. You will also find big schools of the Red Sea bannerfish on this dive site. Across the corner of Banana Reef you’ll find a nice erg and from there you can dive through the coral garden back to your boat.
