Marsa Alam Diving

Marsa Alam Dive Sites

Marsa Alam Diving 

                    1. Elphinstone Reef

                    Mythic dive site of the south. Sheer walls plunge deep into the blue, richly
                    decorated with soft corals, sponges, gorgonias and fans. Pelargics often
                    swim by the spot to feed on the abundant reef fish population. The northern
                    plateau is home to schooling hammerheads with frequent sightings of
                    oceanic wite tip sharks.

                    2. Shaab Marsa Alam

                    Large reef in front of the last southern civilian town on the Egyptian
                    coastline. Corals gardens formed near huge coral blocks 'porites' and
                    shoals of banners, goatfish, snappers and jacks.

                    3. Shaab Samadai

                    A horseshoe shaped reef creates a shallow turquoise water lagoon where a
                    large herd of spinner dolphins live pernamently. Several dives are found on
                    its outer walls. The western tip provides a large group of pinnacles rising to
                    the surface from a carpet of seagrass, populated by schools of reef fish.

                    4. Daedalus Reef

                    A huge round reef with a lighthouse more than 40 miles away from the
                    coast, features an excellent opportunity for spotting big pelargics all around
                    its steep walls with an extreme variety of fish and coral. Strong currents

                    5. Shaab Sharm

                    Big reef with big walls, hammerhead and grey reef sharks in summer,
                    malabar grouper, baracudas, and schooling reef fish the rest of the year.
                    Currents, soft corals and giant fans.

                    6. Abu Galawa

                    On 'Fury Shoal' group, this reef has a good hard coral garden on the north
                    side, and a wreck of an old tug boat fully covered with corals leaning on a
                    pinnacle on the south side.

                    7. Shaab Mansour

                    Good dives on both north and south plateaus, with strong currents which
                    favour the growth of all types of coral, inclucing black, soft and fans.
                    Sharks, napolean and tuna fish.

                    8. Sataya

                    Also named 'Dolphin Reef', huge barrier reef that offers a sheltered inner
                    lagoon and shear walls on the outside schooling hammerhead, large tuna
                    fish and jacks.

                    9. Zabargat

                    Enormous mountain coming out of the water surrounded by a lagoon and
                    circling reef. A couple of wrecks and some decent diving with a great
                    variety of both corals and reef fish.

                    10. Rocky Island

                    Tiny rock emerging a few feet out of the water, it offers one of the most
                    incredible underwater scenarios of the whole Red Sea. Steep walls falling
                    into the deep blue, currents, soft corals and a great abundance of pelargics
                    and all kinds of fish.
