Far Garden at one kilometer north of Na'ama Bay is definitely the most colorful of the three gardens. Currents can be strong here which attract many large pelagic feeding on the currents. Manta rays are frequent visitors here as are all the other common reef fish. Diving here at night can be a spectacle and coral such as stony and gorgonians are very prolific here.
Far Gardens is an area that gradually descents to the start of a nice wall at 25 meters of depth. It is dotted with smaller coral heads, pinnacles, boulders and ergs. There are nice small caves that are filled with glassfish and there is a small and deep overhang between 35 and 45 meters which is called The Cathedral. Diving here can be done drifting as well as a fixed mooring dive. But to see all the different spots and because of the strong currents it is better to do it as a drift dive.
