Where else in the world can you jump into a 130m deep reef from the shore??? No boat, no travel...Just put your fins and jump. Also the Bells going down that chimeny to almost 30m depth was exciting. You gotta be PADI Advanced to do that folks....

Don't read the stories of other divers disasters before you go. It was absolutely incredible. Submerging into the hole only one diver at at time and then traversing along the edge - this dive site is a must.

Don't miss out on this one. It's a gorgeous experience. The Cleaner Wrasse are the best ;) Entry and exit points are not for the faint of heart. Expect a lot of snorkelers and divers at these points. It's always busy. But worth it :)

diving the bells in the blue hole is fab and the wall of coral is amazing, but the whole surroundings are not good. Loads of day trippers from Sharm turn up and snorkel. They stand on the reef and seem oblivious to the harm they are doing. Too commercial !

Great entrance to this dive via El Bells ... 32m down and under an arch and popping out into the deep blue with a fantastic coral wall.

This should be on every divers bucket list - in at Bells drift down and over the saddle into the Blue Hole and then chill watching the freedivers
