Some of the wrecks, around the coastline of Abu Dhabi date back as early as the 1960s. The sites are only accessible by boat but are well worth the ride due to the prolific amount of marine life which calls this area home. Visibility can reach up to 15m. However wrecks are not all Abu Dhabi has to offer with sites suitable for all levels of divers.
- The Breakwater - a large barrier built to protect the coastline from rough seas.
- The Cement Barges - these small wrecks are in various states of repair but all are host to a multitude of marine life, including snappers, barracuda, fusiliers and goatfish.
- Hannan Wreck - home to the largest concentration of life of all the wrecks. Regular sightings include, large shoals of jacks, barracuda, batfish, puffer fish, "warty doris" one of the largest nudibranches in the gulf as well as a host of rays - bell, leopard, electric, and guitar sharks are regularly seen.
- Jazirat Sir Bu Na'air - this magnificent island is some 70 km off the coast. Despite being a Military outpost, it is also a turtle sanctuary and offers some of the most spectacular diving in the Emirates.
- Currents around the Hannan Wreck can be very strong so exercise caution.
- Permission must be sought from the Military to dive Jazirat Sir Bu Na'air but, if this can be obtained, expect to see beautiful coral reefs, shoals of fish and large pelagic life - eagle rays, barracudas and even manta rays all in fantastic visibility.
