Ras Mohamed - Shark & Yolanda Reefs - A world renowned dive site, situated at the tip of the Sinai. Two small ergs joined by a vertical wall dropping into the abyss. At Shark Reef the current allows you to drift along the wall, rich with colourful corals. Around the reef you will come upon the scattered remains of the wreck 'Yolanda' complete with its cargo of toilets and baths.
Gubal Island - At the gate of the Straits of Gubal is 'Bluff Point', which gets its name from the turbulence created by strong currents that beat the eastern wall of the island. The wreck of the 'Ulysses' lies on the reef 300m north of the lighthouse, starting at 5m and sloping to 25m. 'The Barge' wreck, south of the lighthouse, provides divers with a fun and unusual night dive. The wrecks skeleton creates protection for all types of night creatures.
Abu Nuhas - Also known as the 'Ships Graveyard', this reef is positioned dangerously close to the busy shipping lanes of the Gulf of Suez. This reef has claimed more ships than any other in the area. On the north side are four wrecks laying on a sandy seafloor at the bottom of a steep sloping reef layered with table corals. Wrecks here include the Ghiannis D, Carnatic, Tile and Lentil Wrecks. On the south side is a safe anchorage for liveaboards and two ergs, known as Yellow Fish Reef.
Danaba (Shag Rock) - This large circular reef is often overlooked but offers excellent diving on pristine coral from any location on its perimeter.
