RAS UMM SID

Description:
  • Ras Umm Sid is possibly one of the most exciting Sharm el Sheikh local dive sites. It’s a site which has a bit of everything including mixed topography, the potential of pelagic sightings and fast currents. If there is very little current it can be dived as a mooring dive, but be careful that the current doesn’t pick up on the corner making it difficult to return to the exit point whether that is the boat or shore. Preferably it is dived as a semi-drift or drift dive. The dive starts with a steep wall which has a beautiful set of Gorgonian fan corals, it then transforms into a huge plateau. The current tends to whip divers around the corner and occasionally can push them out over the plateau. It is on the plateau that divers can often spot large pelagic species cruising by.

TEMPLE Dive Site

Description:
  • Temple dive site is in the southern area of Sharm el Sheikh local dive sites. It is a nice easy dive with interesting topography which can keep you exploring for ages. The sight as it names suggests is made up of several massive coral blocks which rise up from the sea bed to within meters of the surface. The main block is surrounded by smaller pinnacles making it look like an ancient underwater temple. The dive is usually done as a mooring dive, so the trick is to get your navigation correct, not to miss the main attraction and return to your boat – which is easier said than done.

Just before the entry to this open cutting , there is a pinnacle rising up like a ‘tower’ hence the dive sites name.

NEAR GARDEN

Description:
  • Out of all of the Sharm el Sheikh local sites Near Garden is the closest to our jetty – making it ideal for divers to join our dive boat at midday for the afternoon dive. It is located on the southern headland of Middle Garden or the northern headland of Naama Bay. This dive can be done as a mooring dive but is more popular with divers as a semi –drift dive. Divers normally enter where there are several pinnacles making a ridge down the sharp coral slope. You can then head north along the steep reef until it starts to flatten out as you enter Middle Garden. If the dive is planned as a semi-drift you can spend the last minutes of the dive exploring the fringing reef which has lots of small inlets.

MIDDLE GARDEN

Description:
  • Middle Garden is a large sheltered bay. The site is very protected from the weather making it an ideal site for the first holiday dive or for Discover SCUBA diving dives. The fringing reef drops down between 2-3 meters to a large sandy area. This gently sloping sand area is dotted with small coral heads and is a great space to spot bottom-dwellers like the blue spotted sting ray. The main reef runs the length of the bay and gently slopes down into the blue, it is cut by several sandy ‘roads’ which make navigation easy. Middle Garden is an ideal site to have a relaxing dive over the reef with a chance to see if anything is cruising by in the blue. Once in a while Sharm el Sheikh local sites like Middle Garden can surprise you with a sighting of huge turtles, whale sharks or mantas.
