Sinai Peninsula Scuba Diving at Ras Mohammed
With no mooring and a generally strong current, Ras Ghazlani is done as a drift dive, which is the perfect way to appreciate the tranquillity of this dive site.
The preservation of its delicate beauty is thanks to site having been closed off to divers for many years.
One of the treasures of Sharm El Sheikh, it is by far one of the healthiest and most diverse coral sites in the Sinai region.
Located at the mouth of Marsa Bareika, this site consists of a steep slope covered by coral heads. Dropping down to 15 metres, the reef wall descends gradually as you go deeper with abundant fish life all across the reef. Pufferfish, eagle rays, groupers and napoleonfish dot the reef, and keep your eyes on the blue for some pelagic action.
Whatever marine life exists in the Red Sea, you can be sure to find it scuba diving here in the Sinai Peninsula.
