The Small Passage is actually an opening in the large Shaab Mahmud reef, which follows the coast here and creates a protected lagoon where live-aboard dive boats often anchor for the night. It's proximity to a good anchorage is not the only reason Small Passage is a dive site: the shallow passage (maximum depth is 20ft) is tremendously rich in coral and fish species, a good place to get an overview of what Red Sea reefs have to offer.
