Superb wall dive with a plateau. We were lucky enough to get sharks and then the biggest tuna any of us had ever seen. Fabulous dive site.

This is a nice dive site, but then they all are in Marsa Alam, lots of the usual Red Sea marine life (too many to list) and great vis, if you plan your visit accordingly.

Vis not very good, due to number of divers but also the choppy sea. Once closer to the reef the vis improved, but dive guides forewarned us of the vis.

Good for children thought a little pricey for what you saw. The marina itself is lovely and you can relax with a drink. Probable be better to go on the day Oceans Trip tan this little one.

Very easy and nice place, close to Marsa Alam's Marina, with some quite nice marine life. A good place for check dives in the beginning of safari, when you start from Marsa Alam.
