Jeddah Wreck

A coaster sitting on top of the reef just south of Jeddah Port. You can wade out to it the water never coming above your waist but about ten feet beyond the water is about fifty foot deep. There is another wreck of a passenger ship, on its side a short distance away, a favourite dive site.

No I do not think so. It was easy wading distance from the road. If you were looking on Google Earth I had turned south down the South Corniche Road and passed the first round-about. So although the longitude was near enough the latitude was more like 21 18' N. I took the photo sometime between 1985 and 1987 so I guess the wreck in question has either been scrapped or fallen into deeper water, she was sitting right on the edge of the reef.

Good photo Igrania,
I was working in Jeddah off and on from 1992 - 1999 and I used to go fishing at the reef and I don't remember seeing that wreck so I think that you are right, it must have been moved.
