Sernaka Island


Site Position

6 kilometers south of the Ras Banas peninsula in the Foul Bay archipelago.


Sea Conditions

Fair weather conditions. Occasionally strong current. Varying visibility.



Depth 5-40 meters. From here you should be able to detect the contours of the Kamash wreck, weather permitting. You may wish to include a visit during your drive. However, do not penetrate the hazardously narrow entrance. There’s a reef wall dropping dramatically on the southern site. Compass skills required since the sandy bottom is deceptively uniform.
