One of the best dive spots in Hurghada, both for sea life and coral gardens. In this please you get almost everyting. A lot of corals and a lot of sea life. You can expect everything from octopus and moray's till turtles and dolphins.

The way the locals treat the reef is heart breaking. I strongly suggest for anyone that truly love nature not to go. It was horrible watching the "captain" pollute the see with beer cans and plastic bags. When confronted, the replay was "I'm Egyptian, this is my sea".

If you came to Hurghada and never looked coral reefs, then why did you come here? Sea, coral reefs and a variety of marine life that's why I go to Egypt. Protect the perfect Red Sea, do not trample the corral. Your children will arrive in Hurghada and see this beauty through many years.

I encourage all who visit Hurghada to find time to spend at least one day of swimming and diving - the experience is amazing. Like in 5 D cinema. Clean water and fish everywhere around you. Coral reefs are amazing. We wanted to see dolphins, but that day I could not.

We recognize that the reefs found in the red sea. It is Small animals are located at the bottom of the sea have beautiful colors. I love the beautiful colors and diverse forms, but I do not like algae that accumulate them, and studies have shown that Bacteria live in the coral reefs

There was nothing we disliked. The entire visit was excellent. Cant believe ive never been earlier.Snorkeling was something ive wanted to do for so long, I had a marvelous instructor whom was very patient, and to see what I did in that beautiful sea was spectacular.

Brilliant dive very colourful and full of sea life. But watch out or that current. It makes Thistlegrom look like a training dive. Hard work but worth it. Nigel

not the best place to dive near hurghada, but you can go there and have nothing to loose, average place for red sea. i recomend this only for a dive, not a full day dive, combined with some other dive site near this.
