UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY | M42 tank wreck

Aqaba, Jordan
Featured diving image
LOCATION:
Aqaba
DIVE SITE:
M42 Duster Anti-Aircraft Vehicle
DEPTH:
6 metres
Located just a short fin from shore and often seen on the way back from a dive on the Cedar Pride, this wreck is mostly referred to as 'the tank' but it's actually an American M42 Duster with a self propelled anti-aircraft canon, that was used by the Jordanian Army. In 1999, it was scuttled to create an artificial reef.

Nowadays, the hull is sporting new soft and hard coral growth, which is attracting small fish to use the cracks and crevices while the space beneath has become a haven for an enormous number of lionfish plus a few devil scorpionfish that lurk motionless on the sand.
