SS Thistlegorm The SS Thistlegorm is arguably the best wreck dive in the world. It sunk in WW11 during a bomb attack just the day before Rosalie Moller was similarly brought below the sea surface by the Germans. The military trucks, ammunition and motorcycles and the many supplies that stayed on board make it a giant museum lying 15 - 30 meters below the sea surface. The site must be dived at least twice to get the real taste and appreciate the outside and inside of this wreck. If the current is not strong, night dives on SS Thistlegorm is a rewarding experience.

Straits of Tiran The Tiran area contains four unique reef systems; Jackson, Woodhouse, Thomas and Gordon. The natural formation of this area has allowed for a steady flow of plankton to the coral reefs, completing the food chain cycle from planktons to sharks. The systems offer both diverse marine life and fantastic seascape. These reef plateaus have an abundance of marine life, and fantastic wall drop-offs offering encounter opportunities with pelagics and sharks in the season between July and September.

Ras Mohammed Having at least a few dives in Ras Mohamed is a must for any diver, considered as one of the most beautiful places to dive in the world. It is one of the most protected areas in the Red Sea with incredible visibility that can reach 40 meters in some sites. With at least 12 quality dive sites full of vibrant marine life and colourful hard and soft corals, you will never feel too crowded diving in Ras Mohamed. Most of the time, the sea conditions are calm, offering relaxed dives for all divers regardless of experience level. The population of anthias, giant gorgonians fans, schools of jacks, snappers and tuna with the occasional sharks and rays give a little hint of what to expect. The iconic wreckage of the Yolanda with it's load of toilets is also a bonus.

Abu Nuhas We would call Abu Nuhas a paradise for divers. This spectacular reef offers some of the best wreck diving in the Red Sea. There are four shallow wrecks that are suitable for divers of all levels, each of them makes a great dive. Wrecks, healthy reefs with hard and soft corals and a good chance to spend time with friendly bottlenose dolphins. The four wrecks are: Carnatic, Chrisoula K, Giannis D and Kimon M.

The Blue Hole / Bells This is one of the most famous dive sites in the world, it’s located in the South East of the Sinai Peninsula. The dive starts from the “Bells” which is an open chimney wide enough for one diver at the time. The Bells name came from the sound coming from divers’ tanks touching the sides of the wall. We exit the chimney at about 25 meters deep and swim to the right along the outer wall of the Blue Hole where you find majestic overhangs that are full of life and color. It is a must do dive site.

The Canyon Is a classic and essential dive for all caves and cavern fanatics. On the way to the Canyon, we pass through a beautiful coral garden that is full of life that you would expect in the Red Sea. Upon approaching the crack at about 20 meters deep, you start seeing the many bubbles stream up through the sea floor. The topography is fantastic with a dreamy light show by the sunrays entering through the cracks. The clean white sand at the bottom of the Canyon at about 29 meters deep, allows you to just relax and enjoy the scene. The hundreds of cave sweepers filling the coral dome above just add to the overall great feel of the dive.

Gabr El Bint The name of the site in Arabic means ‘The Grave of the Girl’, during the briefing you will know more about the myth related to the name. It is one of the most attractive dive sites in Sinai, it is in pristine condition. Depending on the direction we go, you would find steep walls, sandy ravines, overhangs, healthy table corals and forests made out of the healthiest gorgonian fan corals in the Red Sea. Keeping a good eye out on the blue is always a good idea to spot great barracudas or trevallies hunting on the shoals of fusiliers. During the safety stop you would usually see shoals of snappers hanging there or in a couple of meters below. It is a truly breathtaking dive site.
