Marsa Alam Dive Sites

Maps of Egypt - marsa alam map

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.
