More About North and Ras Mohammed
Between the Gulf of Aqaba and the Gulf of Suez, the waters of the two straits meet and often form strong currents. As a result of these strong currents, numerous pelagic species are often passing by. Breathtaking steep walls and excitement guaranteed!
The most extraordinary diving can be found on "Shark Reef" and "Yolanda Reef!" Excellent dive with "Shark Reef" as a starting point and a drop-off plunging to -800 m! We will dive along with this fantastic drop-off and then ascend to the plateau in the direction of "Yolanda Reef", which will present you its magnificent coral formations, an impressive collection of multicolored sponges, and fan corals. An abundant and thriving fauna: giant moray eels, napoleons, turtles, groupers, batfish.
And finally, the "Yolanda" a Cypriot cargo vessel that sunk in 1980and gave the site its name. Today only a part of the cargo and the debris the wreck left after slipping down the reef remains.
On this site, you can often make pictures of a head of a moray coming out of a……..toilet pot.
