Wreck Diving in Eliat: Unexpected Israel

 Via Emunah:

After 25 years of service in the Israeli Navy, the Achi Sufa was sunk in the Gulf of Eilat (Aqaba) at the northern tip of the Red Sea 1994 and is now an artificial reef teeming with life. It is one of the most popular wreck dives in all of Israel. Brilliant soft and hard corals, giant groupers, millions of glass fish and lion fish make the Sufa their home.

Its spectacularly photogenic.

A photo from the Sufa in Israel is one of the winners of the 2014  Ocean Art Contest , in the Marine Life Behavior Category. A huge school of glass sweepers take shelter in the wreck of the Sufa  forming an all you can eat buffet for a resident lion fish
