In 1887, coming from the Suez Canal the Ulysses hit the northern coast of Small Gubal Island.
After the 70 m long steam ship stuck on the reef and could not be pulled off, it sank and is now lying at the reef slope between 8m to 30m.
The wreck is covered all over with soft and hard corals, various marine life like big shoals of antheas, sergeant majors and butterfly fish can be seen.
Very calm conditions are needed to dive in this wreck, because currents can be quite severe and large surface swells make it impossible to moor dive boats.
