WHERE ARE WE DIVING?
And once again we are going to Red Sea, BUT THIS TIME, we’re diving THE BLUE HOLE!
We will be diving with Red Sea Jol and we will be going to the Northern Wrecks and Reefs AND DAHAB!
AND THE BLUE HOLE IN DAHAB?
After the classic itinerary of the Northern Wrecks and Reefs – we embark on an additional adventure to Northern City of Dahab.
Dahab is considered to be one of the Sinai’s most treasured diving destinations.
One of the premier dive sites of Dahab is “The Bells” a large vein of rock that has eroded out leaving a deep gash in the reef that drops to 45 metres formed where a deep groove cuts into the reef top.
The “Blue Hole” dive has stunning colonies of Star Coral, Gorgonians, soft and black corals are also found along this region. Sea Anemones are littered in anemone fish as well as plenty of angelfish and butterflyfish along the reef. Finally you reach the “Blue Hole” and enter this circular break in the coral and swim over the reef at around 7-8 meters.
The Canyon and Ras Abu Galum National Park offer the very best opportunity to see these notorious dive sites.
DAHAB The Canyon – The boat will drop you near one of the entrances to the Canyon. There are several entrances with the main, larger one being at a depth of 22 meters. Depending on the ability of the diving group, you may have the time to penetrate a little deeper into the canyon, the dive will then take you up through the length of the Canyon, where you can exit it at a depth of 14 meters.
Both popular and famous these reefs need little introduction. The boats zodiac will drop you near Bells dive site from where the drift dive starts. The dive will follow the coral wall in a southwardly direction, with the reef on your right.
Ras Abu Galum was awarded National Park Status in 1992. The area is difficult to reach, and so we are extremely lucky to take boats there. It is situated just off the shore where there is the Bedouin village of El-Omeyid. The Safari Boats can be moored here and the Zodiacs take the divers out.
At the Northern parts of this reef, you will see a huge variety of corals including Fire Corals, Raspberry corals and small table corals. In terms of Marine life you can expect to see Anthers, Glassfish, Lionfish, Grey eels and Batfish to name a few.
At the Southern parts of this reef, you can have encounters with turtles, pufferfish, shrimps and nudibranchs.
