Dahab- the most interesting dive sites. In brief we describe the most interesting dive sites of the Sinai Peninsula.
Blue Hole- deep well in the reef. Located a few meters from the shore, in the region of Ras Abu Gallum. Blue Hole sea resembles a well with a depth of 102 meters and a diameter of 60 meters. In the wall at a depth of 54 meters open rock arch which connects it with the open sea. The bottom gradually tapered hole falls from 60 meters to about 100 meters at the gate, then the rock threshold is lowered to 120 m are then begins a steep slope, where you can see the remains of a lost diving equipment. The place where divers have died while trying to swim across the Arch with air- nitrogen narcosis. They resemble the tables on the rocks.
Canyon – deep underwater canyon in a coral reef in the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea, on the south west coast of the Sinai Peninsula, Ras Abu Gallum Reserve, about 14 km north of Dahab. One of the best dive-long underwater canyon, starting at different depths. Beautiful place underwater, visited by divers during the night.
Canyon Garden - sloping bottom covered with colonies of soft and hard corals. From here you can perform drift diving towards Canyon.
Bells - another gem area of Dahab, but in order to see it you need to do a walk-final parking on the road in front of the Blue Hole. A narrow slit in a vertical wall of coral, in places close to the sea, forming a tunnel. At a depth of 28 meters ledge ends. Most often this is where the diving at Blue Hole. After leaving the gap you have to turn right and walk along the vertical wall of coral you reach the Blue Hole, which is influenced by a saddle with a depth of 7 meters. In the saddle magnificent coral garden.
Three pools- three swimming pools to dive a few kilometers south of Dahab. Each pool is only a few meters deep. Entering the water must pass through three shallow pools in the coral sand - hence the name of the place. For swimming pools, beautiful coral garden. The sandy bottom is covered with grass, sea turtles can be found here.
Lighthouse - on the right side is a steep sandy slope where you can find many species of fauna sandy bottom - scorpion fish, fish-crocodiles, stingrays and more. On the left side of the maze of coral towers, among which you can find huge flocks of colorful fish. Great place for a night dive.
