Ulysses wreck
In 1887, coming from the Suez Canal the Ulysses hit the northern coast of Small Gubal Island.
After the 70 m long steam ship stuck on the reef and could not be pulled off, it sank and is now lying at the reef slope between 8m to 30m.
The wreck is covered all over with soft and hard corals, various marine life like big shoals of antheas, sergeant majors and butterfly fish can be seen. Sometimes a group of dolphins might pass by.
To dive this wreck very calm weather is needed, because waves and large surface swell make the mooring of dive boats impossible.
The currents can be strong, so it should be only dived if there is a zodiac available
