The Red Sea

A Sharm El Sheikh diving holiday offers you a spectacular and diverse range of dive sites that are amongst the best in the world. From the famous Ras Mohammed Marine Park to some of the most renowned wrecks in the Red Sea, the sheer number of sites means that there is something for all divers. Boat diving is the norm in Sharm but there are also some superb house reefs for diving and snorkelling.

The Red Sea is considered to be one of the 7 Wonders of the underwater world, harbouring more than 1,000 species of invertebrates and over 200 species of soft and hard coral.
Variety is in no short supply either and depending on where you choose to dive, your diving holiday can include shallow patch reefs, drift dives and walls or a collection of some of the most interesting wrecks you are likely to find anywhere. In other places vibrant reefs stretch out far into the sea and form intricate labyrinths of plateaus, lagoons, caves and gardens.

One moment you could find yourself on a coral garden atop a summit and the next a sheer wall could plunge thousands of feet into dark ocean depths. The Red Sea’s abundance of marine life and the depths of the reefs are a thrill that many divers will tell you is unbeatable.

The exciting dive sites of Ras Mohammed Marine Park are what attract legions of experienced divers to Sharm each year. Situated at the tip of Sinai, where the Gulfs of Suez and Aqaba meet, Ras Mohammed’s strong currents and nutrient waters are packed with schools of snappers, barracuda and jacks, along with the sharks that come to stalk them. Steep coastal cliffs are mirrored underwater with impressive vertical walls which drop off 70m or more.

The Strait of Tiran separates Tiran Island from the east coast of Sinai and is famous for four large reefs that rise from the depths like vast underwater mountains. Here, the strong currents and dense plankton attract an impressive range of reef and deep sea species providing some exceptional drift dives.

Further west, round the southern tip of Sinai, lie some of the best wreck dives in the Red Sea. The legendary Thistlegorm is the most famous – a 415 foot World War II British supply ship which lies in 30m with an amazing cargo of motorbikes, trucks, guns and shells.
