Scuba diving in the Red Sea off the coast of Jordan is a very popular tourist activity. The eastern shore of the Northern Red Sea is the deeper side and all the dive sites in Jordan are close to shore, with soft corals and filter feeders proliferating due to stronger currents than those found along the western shore. Aqaba Marine Park was established in Jordan in 2002 to protect the coral reefs for future generations of divers and has since installed mooring buoys at all the popular dive sites. Despite the relatively short distance from shore at most of the sites in the area, boat diving is becoming a necessity as shore access is being restricted by coastal tourism development.

More popularly known to local divers simply as “The Tank” this American M42 Duster self-propelled anti-aircraft gun was originally in the employ of the Jordanian Army. It was scuttled as an artificial reef on 1 September 1999 by the Jordanian Royal Ecological Diving Society and has since accumulated a lot of marine life. (Source: Dive Aqaba).
It has had its engine removed but otherwise appears to be largely complete. It sits on the seabed with its turret traversed to 4 o’clock.
