Diving at Shaab Marsa Alam

 


Shaab Marsa Alam is an ideal spot for check dives with large pinnacles that almost reach the surface. You are likely to see turtles, morays, large napoleons, tunas or reef sharks. At the depth of 14m there is a small safari ship wreck, providing shelter for morays, lionfish, shrimps and slugs.

 




 




     
 




Diving at Shaab Sharm

 


This large, kidney shaped reef, said to be the top of a volcanic pinnacle, features a steep sloping wall on its east and south sides, with a considerable varied profile, especially on the southeastern and southern stretches.

The crescent of reef around the reefs southern tip offers the best diving, with rich coral growth from the surface shallows down, and the most int4eresting profile and layout in the area. There are numerous undercut sections and reef shelves harboring dense soft coral growth and a good range of hard corals. There are also some good black coral bushes on the walls deeper sections.

Fish life is excellent, with a vast array of huge grouper, schooling barracuda, massive congregations of snapper and unicorns and some very large giant, yellowmargin and yellowmouth morays. Currents here can be forceful, and less experienced divers should pay close attention to conditions.












and welcome!
