Ras Mohammed
Ras Mohammad  is situated at the extreme southern part of the Sinai Peninsula. Here, where the Gulf of Aqaba meets with the Gulf of Suez the ocean floor drops down to depths of more than 1000 meter.
A unique under water world exist there where the reef provides the most marvelous diving site in the red sea and indeed the world.

Straits of Tiran
The island of Tiran is located at the south end of the Gulf of Aqaba where the 2000 m depth of water in the gulf becomes shallow water in the straits of Tiran.
In the center of the Straits of Tiran, a ridge pushes up, running from north to south. On its highest elevation four coral reefs (Gordon, Woodhouse, Thomas and Jackson, which are named after British cartographers) have formed.
The currents around these reefs are the cause for the extraordinary diversity of corals and big fish swarms. Among others, you can see barracudas, snappers as well as sharks.

Naama bay
One of the most unknown dive sites in Sharm is located in Naama Bay. This is the only dive spot where you can dive all year round at any time day or night without using a boat or car.
Simply get geared up in the center and walk 50 m to the water edge and you start to dive. Here you will encounter all the sea life you can imagine. All kind of moray eels including the giant moray, schools of juvenile barracudas, sweet lips, rays and many more.

Diving tips
  • Practice carefully before you dive in
  • Before you dive know the water depth
  • Be sure there are no submerged obstacles or surface objects.
  • Remember that when you dive down, you must steer up
  • Don't dive into an aboveground pool or into the shallow end of a pool. Nine of ten diving injuries occur in six feet of water or less.
  • Don't dive off the side of a diving board - dive straight ahead
  • Don't run and dive. That can give you the same impact as a dive from a board
  • Don't swim or dive alone
  • Don't drink and dive. The slowing effects of alcohol or drugs on reaction times can be extremely dangerous in diving
