Diving Highlights and Bucket List Dive Sites:

The Blue Hole – El Bells

One of the most famous diving sites in the Red Sea, not because of its beauty but unfortunately because it is associated with a high number of fatal acci-dents. The site is very interesting when doing a drift dive from El-Bells along the vertical sheer wall dropping away into the blue, towards the saddle of the Blue Hole which is a beautiful coral garden teeming with life.

The Canyon

The Canyon is a deep crack/cave within the reef slope. You can descend
down through its widest opening onto a sandy bottom (28metres) where
the sunrays causes beautiful light effects. You end off the dive along a
beautiful shallow coral garden.

The Islands

Extra ordinary dive site for its richness of marine life and spectacular coral formations. A resident school of juvenile barracuda frequents this site as well as Napoleon wrasse, snappers and groups. A very easy dive which is definitely a highlight.

Eel Garden

The main attraction of this site is the huge population of Garden Eels, but also
offers a mixture of a beautiful coral garden teeming with fish and moray eels.
