Yatush wreck aka Ha Yatush or The Mosquito is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in Eilat, Israel. This dive site has an average rating of 4.50 out of 5 from 2 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 101-110ft/31-34m. The average visibility is 71-80ft/22-24m. Training platforms are available.


Used during the Vietnam War, the vessel was sold by the Americans to the Israelis. Yatush was however, better suited to rivers rather than the open sea and was found to be inefficient. In 1986 it was purposefully sunk to create a dive site.
At a depth of 30m this wreck is for experienced divers and certified wreck divers can swim through the hold to the wheel room. On and around the wreck, divers can spot moray eels, garden eels, lion fish, anthias, cleaner wrasses and large parrot fish as well as many striking coral formations.
