26-Dec-2002 -- We were able to get to within 5.6 km of this offshore DC. It lies among a number of diving/snorkeling reefs known for their resident population of tourist friendly Spinner Dolphins.

The DC is located to the east of Ra's Ṣamaday, south of the city of Marsā `Alam. It is located at a bearing of 71 degrees from our location at N 24° 59.012', E 34° 56.845'. Moored dive boats were visible at the approximate distance of the DC.
