Mostly diving here is from the shore with a transfer via jeep to take you to different locations for you to walk in. Diving like this is perfect for making many dives a day and also if you don’t like boats. If you travel with non-divers, then this is very time efficient for making the most of your time too. For something different some centres offer transfer to shore dives by camel too. Diving here is suitable for beginners, advanced and technical divers. Expect clear waters, gentle current and colourful reefs. Trips can be arranged to dive the wreck of the Thistlegorm and Ras Mohammed too. Please note that these are long days starting well before dawn.
Dahab Sea Life
A large colony of garden eels can be seen swaying drunkenly from their holes in the sand. The reefs are full of colour. Expect clouds of orange anthias, schools of fusilier, yellow tailed barracuda, blue triggerfish, pufferfish, scorpionfish, lionfish and countless bluespotted rays. It’s possible to see turtles and torpedo rays too. For the macro lovers seahorses, frogfish and ghost pipefish are there to be seen.
How To Get There
