It is a fault/crack that has been formed after a earthquake that touched the Gulf of Aqaba. The entrance of the Canyon is at 18 meters and you drop down until 30 meters. It's partially a overhead environment and from there the divers can go through the crack and exit at a depth of 52 meters.

CAVE AFTER THE CANYON (DAHAB) - DOWN THE END OF THE CANYON OF DAHAB (51-55M), AT 72-76M, THERE'S A NICE AND LARGE CAVE. VERY FEW DIVERS KNOW IT. OF COURSE, THE BEST IS TO VISIT IT WHEN THERE'S A VERY GOOD LIGHT AND VISIBILITY...
DO THIS DIVE WITH A MIN. 15L TANK AND DON'T SPEND TOO MUCH TIME IN THE CANYON : WHEN YOU'VE FINISHED DIVING THE CAVE, YOU MUST GET MIN. 90-100 BARS LEFT TO FINISH THE DIVE.
HAVE A NICE DIVE !
