Canyon. Near the Blue Hole is famous Canyon. The place is popular, there are days where literally turns into bubbling jacuzzi (many divers).
Top plan diving in the hours before 10 or after 14 - the majority of tourists from Sharm el Sheikh diving here during these hours.
The entrance leads by about 100 meter on the lagoon, with a depth of about 2-3 meters. On the south - eastern end, at a depth of about 2 meters is a corridor that leads us deeper into the water. Note-at low tide in the corridor may be strong currents. Wall corridor initially falls on 8 meters. Two small blocks of reefs are located right at the exit. One of them looks like a dragon head. This is a good landmark. It helps you to find the hall at the end of the dive.
The strong waves flowing on the surface of the reef is very dangerous. From the dragon head to swim for about 70 meters in a northerly direction towards the end of the Canyon. Small building corals, with a dark gap in the 12 meters of the entrance to the gorge. At this point, always meet a school of glassfish-not afraid of divers. Below the block is a small cave-upper end of the canyon. The cave has a width of 3 and a depth of nearly 9 meters. Through a crack in the rocks, we can admire more and more new paintings on the walls by the light of day.
In this light, you can also see more and more Glassfish. Behind the small fish often hide big fish. Often swims napoleonfish. The bottom drops from 16 to 30 meters. Canyon turns into a cave, the entrance diameter of 20 meters. Sometimes it affects the entrance at the start of the dive to finish them at the top of the cave (towards bottom - top). Then the canyon descends to a depth of over 50 meters. At this point, the bottom drops sharply in great depth.
Find your way back without difficulty. You only have to cross the Canyon, along the cracks and air bubbles. It is a direct way to block coral at a depth of-12m. If you are on the edge of the southern reef with the right hand, we must be guided by the head of the dragon in the lagoon.
