Tomb of the girl (Gabr El Bint). Absolutely one of the best dive sites in the Sinai. You can get here by boat (recommended) or camel (we don’t recommended- smells and shakes). So have to look like coral reefs of the Red Sea 100 years ago.
Huge gorgonians, deep canyon, turtles and moray eels. In fact, here are three routes diving. The first dive, the deepest ( in accordance with the rules of safety ) is dipping along the underwater canyon. Canyon falls down to about 60 meters. I really need to control the depth, so as not to forget. Even if we guard in to swim along the edge of the chasm- like or we fall down. Huge gorgonians, one of the most beautiful in the Red Sea, white sand at the bottom of the canyon, lots of fish- all this meant that no one knows when dropped to 40 meters. A cylinder Nitrox. MOD (Maximum Operating Depth) for nitrox 32% limited our diving depth to 32 meters, then becoming a threat to oxygen poisoning. Dive partner had compressed air, and he showed that for deeply. Quiet shallow water at 32 meters and look of regret on disappearing deeper Czech group of divers. When we asked them how deep dive boats , Jacob instructor smiled and said - at 40 meters. As we were at this depth, we have seen them from 20 meters below. Maybe next time step down and nitrox dive on compressed air, because there is something to watch.
The second route is diving to a depth of about 20- 25 meters, along the wall of coral reef. Again we find a great gorgonians, at a depth of 12- 15 meters feel a slight current of water. Dive with the current above the threshold rock and influence to the white sandy lagoon. Corals discs with a diameter of 2- 3 meters, large stingrays and beautiful views. Here are useful additional two kilograms, because less air cylinder and the depth of small- 5 to 8 meters.
Lunch on board, mandatory 2- 3 hour break, display control computers and fast decision - thirds do scuba diving. Unfortunately dives with us Rafe, English diver. He made the last few days a lot of dives during the course divemaste - computer does not allow it. Recent diving is shallow- max to depth 18 meters . But the amazing underwater garden- like sci-fi movie. We meet great moray and turtle. With a turtle we dive more than 20 minutes, the animal surfaced for air and plunged to an our group of divers. In the end, disappeared in the abyss.
Lengthen the decompression stop, reach the rope towed by the ship. Tonight Prohibition - prohibition drink even beer. After three dives , including two long and deep the risk of DCS after alcohol increases. But after emerging mines had so smiling that Rafe very sorry that he could not th last dive.
