Scuba Diving in the Red Sea
Dive Site: Salah's Place
Location: Dahab, 28°36.895N; 34°33.569E (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)
The dive starts in a small sandy lagoon divided from the plateau by a saddle of stunning corals. Outside the reef table directly in front of the lagoon is a beautiful pinnacle covered in soft and hard corals. This is often surrounded by glassfish and silver sides who are hunted in flashes of silver by rainbow runnerfish and trevallies. A shallow plateau descends dramatically into a wall with pinnacles of soft corals and black coral. On a longer dive it is possible to see schools of batfish on the wall. If dived as a shallow dive coral gardens weave a path between 3 and 10m.
