Sha'ab Abu Nuhas is a large, slightly triangular shaped reef located around two miles to the north of Shadwan Island (also known as Shaker Island). The translation of Abu Nuhas is "Father of Brass". While there is not any brass here, it certainly deserves its other name - "The Ship's Graveyard". Abu Nuhas is a wreck diver's dream come true, boasting four diveable and vastly different wrecks in very close proximity to each other, and all within comfortable diving depths of 100 ft (30 meters) or less. The wrecks are located on the north side of the reef and this requires calm surface conditions for mooring. Back in the early 90s, when divers used day boats here from Hurghada, they often had no choice but to moor in less than ideal conditions. However, these days most boats which come here have a RIB or boat tender. This means that the main dive boat moors behind the reef near a sand lagoon or behind Woodvalley Reef, and the tenders then ferry divers through the channel and out to the wrecks. If weather really is too rough to dive the wrecks, and if current allows, Woodvalley Reef itself is a lovely dive. There is also the option of diving Yellow Fish Reef (located on the south side of Abu Nuhas) a reef which makes a great night dive.
