The 19th century steam-driven sailing ship Carina was on its way to Calcutta with general cargo that included Belgian glassware. Coming from Suez it caught fire south of Sha’ab Ali and ran for shallower waters to the northwest corner of a reef that is located north of Shag Rock. The Carina is lying in shallow water and wreckage is spread over a large area. The bow and stern sections are intact and lie between 6 – 14 m. Some of the cargo is still visible: fragments of painted glass and drinking vessels. The wreckage has widespread coral growth and marine life. More of the cargo must be hidden beneath the well grown hard corals. Due to the location large swell and strong currents are common and the wreck is dived infrequently.
