Safaga Dive Sites

Maps of Egypt - safaga map


1. Ras Abu Soma

Reef lying in front of the shore sloping gently and offers numerous
quality dive sites. Several caves with sweepers, schooling reef fish and
occasional sightings of eagle rays.

2. Tobia Arba

Also named the 'seven pillars', rising from a sandy bottom and display a
fascinating landscape of soft corals, glassfish, gorgonians. Giant puffer
fish, bluespotted rays and octopus.

3. Tobia Kebira

Isolated reef emerges from a shallow sandy depth and offers interesting
diving with schooling fish, morays and groupers.

4. Tobia Soghira

Stretching out from Tobia Island, run a chain of pinnacles with a sandy
bottom in between. Stingrays, triggerfish and big shoals of bannerfish
with gorgonians and acroporas in thee background.

5. Gamul Soghira

Very colourful dive with hovering sweetlip shoals, banner and butterfly
fish. A small coral block wich can be circumnavigated in some half an
hour.

6. Panorama Reef

One of the highlights of the area. Huge coral formation with walls
dropping to over 200m. Numerous grottos and overhangs, gorgonians
and soft corals. Jacks, baracudas and reef sharks often visit the area.

7. Middle Reef

Northerly reef face slopes to 30m, then plumets vertically to much
greater depths. Hard coral gardens on the east and west corners with
acroporas, brain and salad coral. Fun dive on the south side through
the shallow laberyth of caves, tunnels and passages. Groupers, puffers
and sweetlips.

8. Abu Gafan

Possibly the best dive in Safaga, a 300m long and narrow barrier
features a 'plateau' in both north and south extremes. Superb wall
diving with soft and black coral, giant fan and gorgeinias. Frequent
sightings of jacks, baracuda and reef sharks.

9. Shaab Shear

A long barrier creates a shallow laggoon on its south side and hard
coral gardens on both its east and west extremes. Porites, acroporas and
fire coral with schooling jacks, snapper and tuna fish.

10. Wreck of Salem Express

Ferry carrying pilgrims returning from Mecca, sank in 1992 after hitting
the reef at night. 300 victims perished in one of the greatest marine
tragedies of all time. Also, home of 'Colin' the Red Seas best known
frogfish.
