Scuba Diving in the Red Sea
Dive Site: Ras Abu Galum
Location: Dahab, 28°36.778N; 34°33.268E (90 min camel ride from the Blue Hole)
Description: Shore dive / coral garden
Depth: 1 - 30 metres (3 - 100 feet)
Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)
A sandy slope descends away from the shore with the reef wall starting on both sides. Dive to the left where the reef table swings wide into a steep wall dive with pinnacles and dramatic rock formations, always keep one eye fixed on the blue as you will often see trevallies and jacks while the resident turtle crosses beneath them close to the wall. Ascend a bit shallower and you will find beautiful fire corals and schools of reef fish.
