126 Dive Sites

Part 2: Dive Sites, Marine Life & Environment in Sharm el-Sheikh, (Egypt)

Ras Bob, named after underwater cameraman Bob Johnson, is a nice local Sharm el Sheikh dive site with sheltered conditions. A shallow dive with many small bays, caves and gullies, Ras Bob is an excellent dive for beginner and experienced divers alike. The sandy bottom is the perfect home for Blue-spotted stingrays and crocodile fish. 

Declared a national park in 1993, Ras Mohamed is one of the best-protected reefs in Egypt. It is situated at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula and has steep coral wall that drops off to 1000 meters deep, attracting larger fish and turtles. Dive sites Shark Reef and Jolanda are one rock formation that splits into two pinnacles at about 26 meters deep. Dives usually start at the eastern pinnacles, known as Shark Reef, and make their way to Jolanda pinnacle with the current. Named after a freighter ship that sunk in 1980, Jolanda is a shallower site that is now littered with the ship’s cargo of bathroom supplies. Offering a unique photo opportunity and a reason for giggles, Jolanda is one of the few places in the world where divers get to explore toilet bowls for marine life. 

Jackson Reef, situated in the Strait of Tiran, is Sharm el Sheik’s most thrilling drift dive. The fast current takes divers past a coral-covered wall that is home to numerous schooling fish. In the months of August to October, scalloped hammerheads frequent the waters here. 

The Thistlegorm is listed on many divers’ to-dive list. This steam ship, carrying supplies during World War II, was sunk by German bomber planes in 1941 and has been at the bottom of the ocean for over 70 years. Frozen in time, this broken ship is now one of the world’s most famous wreck dives. Diving the Thistlegorm feels like swimming through a history museum, with Bedford trucks, motorbikes, rifles, ammunition, and even a locomotive all left in place. The Thistlegorm is an advanced dive, due to a maximum depth of 32 meters and strong currents sometimes.
