Scuba Diving in the Red Sea
Dive Site: Bannerfish Bay
Location: Dahab, 28°29.934N; 34°31.125E
Description: Shore dive / seagrass area
Depth: 1 - 30 metres (3 - 100 feet)
Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)
Bannerfish bay is located just right of the Lighthouse. Using the same entry point as the Lighthouse, go left down a gradual slope to about 12 metres. Here you will swim over a large seagrass area which is abundant with macro life; seahorses, anglerfish, nudibranchs, rare ghost pipefish, moray eels, stonefish, scorpionfish, crustaceans and lots more are hidden in the seagrass. It is quite common to see the resident turtle feeding on the seagrass. Right in the middle of it all you will see a small car wreck and several tyres. Swim a little further and after the seagrass you will find a small reef filled to the brim with schooling bannerfish, which is how the dive site got its name.
