Karang Hatta is a coral atoll off the south coast of Hatta Island; to many a dive not to be missed. The reef here starts shallow but slopes down beyond 40m. There is no need to go deep to see the fish though as the entire reef is full of schools of fish so thick you will not be able to see the way ahead. Shoals of fusiliers, snappers and surgeonfish seem to block your path, only to part as you swim through and close ranks again behind you.
It is possible to see blacktip reef sharks, swimming along the west side wall, plus white tip reef sharks resting on the bottom. Turtles are common as are large wrasse and titan triggerfish. Out in the blue you can spot giant barracuda and giant trevally. Schools of dog tooth tuna threaten the smaller fish. Eagle rays and devil rays often show up for a plankton feed and lucky divers may get to see scalloped hammerheads. As you would expect from a dive site with so much variation and pelagic action, Karang Hatta is subject to strong currents and is not a dive for beginners. Visibility averages around 25 meter and can be better.
