Diving in Sharm El Sheikh

Sharm El Sheikh is well known for its wonderful dive sites, rich of different coral types and many fish species, amazing Flora and Fauna, with water temperature ranging between 20°C in February 27°C from July to October, and an outstanding visibility ranging between 20-30 meters! You only need a long wetsuit from November to April, for the rest of the year it's enough to wear a short wetsuit. More Europeans learn to dive in Sharm El Sheikh than anywhere else in the world and diving is ideal for beginners.

All divers can join weekly diving Schedule. If you are on a family holiday but you cannot live without diving, Reef Oasis organizes two shore dives daily at 11.30 am and 2.30 pm at beautiful house reefs Temple and Far Garden. The boat trips are organized every day to the best dive sites of famous Ras Mohamed National Park or to Tiran Strait. We leave from the jetty (Sharm el Sheikh or Shark's bay) at 8.00 am. During the trip, we complete two dives and for those interested, there is a possibility of the third dive. During breaks, we enjoy sun and sea and have a lunch break with soft drinks on the board.



Dive Sites 

In general, Sharm El Sheikh is divided into three main areas: The Straits of Tiran with its Dive Sites, The Ras Mohamed National Park with its Dive Sites and the Local Dive Sites in Sharm El Sheikh that lies in between Tiran Island and Ras Mohammed National Park.

  • Ras Mohammed - South of Sharm el Sheikh the coast is totally deserted, with no shelter for more than a mile, up to the small bay named MARSA GHOZLANI, where the RAS MOHAMMED NATIONAL PARKbegins. This is followed by another bay, MARSA BAREIKA which is much larger and deeper. It penetrates the land for 2.8 miles, forming the RAS MOHAMMED peninsula, which extends south-eastwards into the Red Sea for almost 5 miles and separates the Gulf of Aqaba from the Gulf of Suez. Because of its geographic position the Ras Mohammed peninsula is a privileged area that benefits from strong currents that transport large quantities of plankton and other food that give rise to an extraordinary growth of hard and soft corals and attract large schools of both reef and pelagic marine fauna. With the great abundance of food, barracuda, jackfish, tuna and sharks swarm in these waters, especially between June to August, offering divers the chance to make extremely interesting and exciting dives.
  • Strait of Tiran - The Straits of Tiran lies at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba and are bordered on the west by the coast of Sinai and on the east by the island of Tiran. In the middle of this channel are four reefs lying in a northeast-southwest direction that were named after the 19th century English cartographers who drew the first nautical map of this region: JACKSON REEF, WOODHOUSE REEF, THOMAS REEF and GORDON REEF. These reefs divide the straits into two canals, to the east is the so-called GRAFTON PASSAGE, which is used exclusively by ships going northwards, while to the west is the ENTERPRISE PASSAGE for ships heading south. The strong currents that characterize the Straits of Tiran transport great quantities of plankton and other nutrient material every day, thus supplying a great deal of food to the corals and hence to the reef fish which in turn are eaten by the large pelagic predators such as barracuda, jackfish, tuna and above all sharks which are always in this zone. Consequently, scuba divers in the waters of Tiran are sure to see not only an infinite number of corals but also rich fauna, both reef and pelagic.
  • Far Garden - Far Garden is situated in the northernmost part of a splendid bay just north of Naama Bay. Because of the many coral formations and their configuration, Far Garden is considered a veritable underwater hanging garden. It differs from the other localities in the bay, since there is a series of large coral pinnacles located between the ledge along the reef and the drop-off, which becomes gradually steeper in an eastward direction. Here you can make either a drift dive or shore dive. The current, which generally runs eastwards, tends to get stronger closer to the headland. Do not dive too deeply, especially in the vicinity of THE CATHEDRAL. You can look out for Gorgonian, porites, lionfish, fusiliers, glassfish, scorpionfish, and in the summer months, many larger pelagics swimming past.
  • The Temple - The Temple is located on the north side of Sharm El Sheikh Harbor. It is a group of three pinnacles that rise up from 20 meters below to the surface. This is a flat, sloping reef with two major, and a few minor, pinnacles adding contour to the reef face. The largest of the pinnacles is 'The Tower'. Its bulk is split by two major fissures, one of which can be swum through. The second should not be entered, to avoid damaging the delicate gorgonians growing along its sides. All the pinnacles hide a surprisingly rich variety of reef animals.
  • The pinnacles are rather close to each other and have sand channels between them. The pinnacles have sheer walls which are covered with soft and hard corals, fan corals and reef fish. Coral growth throughout the site is good, with a density and mix of species difficult to match in the immediate area. They are a blanket of color. The fish are as pleasant a surprise as the coral, with a truly amazing range of species colonizing the reef. There are lionfish all about, as well as stonefish that do not move and are camouflaged. 
  • Around the pinnacles are schools of glass sweepers that move together.
  • Because The Temple is so close to Sharm El Sheikh and Na'ama Bay, it is a very popular night-dive site. At night the basket stars create the illusion of a curtain in the light current as they feed. As the basket stars are hit by your dive light, they tend to withdraw into a ball. As the light moves away, they expand back out and continue feeding. The feather stars and soft corals have many colors that are very beautiful in the dive lights. You can find parrotfish in the crevices with your dive lights. Some may even have their cocoons around them.
  • The typical depth range of the Temple is 5 to 20 meters deep and is accessed by our Shore.
  • Ras Nasrani - The name of this locality means Christian cape in Arabic.
  • The diving is done from a small sandy plateau that begins at a depth of about 6 meters, where a sand flow originates then you head northwards towards the cape, taking advantage of the current, which ranges from weak to moderate and tends to get faster near the headland. After you have passed some large gorgonians located at about 20 meters' depth, you will come upon large colonies of mushroom-shaped Porites coral heads; These become even more numerous beyond the cape. The dive goes through the zone between the reef slope, which has many small shelters studded with multicolored Alcyonarians, and the drop-off situated about 30 meters away. Ras Nasrani has the best shallow coral available to snorkellers in Sharm.
  • Thistlegorm Wreck - THE THISTLEGORM, its Gaelic name meaning BLUE THISTLE, was a British transport ship belonging to the Albyn Line shipping company, is 126.5 meters long, a capacity of 4,898 tons and had a `three-cylinder steam engine developing 1,860 HP that gave the vessel a speed of around 10 knots. The Thistlegorm was built to transport refurbished wartime materials for the British troops. In May 1941 with a crew of 39 men it had left the port of Glasgow, Scotland, with a cargo of munitions, bombs of different kinds, anti-tank mines, Lee Enfield MK III rifles, hundreds of BSA, BSA W-M20, Matchless G3L and Norton 16H motorbikes. Bedford, Morris and Ford trucks. Four light Brengun Carrier MK II tracked vehicles. Two steam Stanier 8 F locomotives complete with two coal tenders and water tankers. On the night of the 5-6 October 1941 two German Heinkel HE III bombers, coming from their base in Crete, sighted and attacked the ship. It was hit by two bombs on hold no.4 where the munitions deposit amongst other things was situated. The Thistlegorm sank in an upright position on a flat, sandy seabed 30 meters deep at 1.30 am on the 6th October 1941. Jacques Cousteau discovered the wreck in 1955 and mentioned it in an article published in February 1956 in the monthly National Geographic Magazine. Jacques Cousteau did not reveal the position of the wreck, thus it went forgotten for almost 40 years until 1991 when it was rediscovered by an Israeli skipper. In a short time, the Thistlegorm has become a great favorite with scuba divers from all over the world and is now the most visited wreck in the whole Red Sea.
  • Dahab - The small city of Dahab lies 80 KM north of Sharm el Sheikh and has seen considerable tourist development in the last few years. The number of scuba divers visiting its diving sites has risen amazingly, yet many of these divers are not clients of the over 30 local dive centers here but come from Sharm looking for different dives in a more relaxed and calm atmosphere. In contrast to Sharm el Sheikh where scuba diving is mainly by boat, in Dahab the sites are easily accessible by land and boats are rare.

Altadena, CA
United States

Interesting trip. We went in early June 2022. Sharm el Sheikh is a strange place. I didn’t know much about it prior to going there. The Reef Oasis hotel was probably 30% full, and many of the others around it were closed or totally vacant. I think Bluewater made the right choice in recommending the Reef Oasis, because at least there were some guests there (mostly Italians), and a few divers. The other one run by the same dive club was much emptier. There were zero other Americans there (or anywhere else we visited), and people seemed to think that it was very strange that we were visiting. Overall, the Reef Oasis was a nice hotel, and the staff tried very hard. It was quite comfortable.

Diving was strange at first, because we were expecting something like the last place we were at, which was very busy. Here, the hotel dive center looked deserted, and no-one else was there when we showed up to arrange dives. However, the dive instructor was good and it was nice to just dive with the two of us and one instructor, which would have never happened at a busy resort. There is a reef right off the beach which is quite good, and we did several dives off the shore there.

They did have boat trips, and we went to an area called Ras Mohammed twice. There are lots of dives there. But, since there are not many boats coming from Sharm El Sheikh, there isn’t a lot of choice about what dives you do. We did two exceptional dives (one of them twice) and a few others that were not quite as good. We had hoped to go to some other areas but you don’t have a lot of choices because there is only one boat per day. We were usually the only people from our resort on that boat, as far as I know. The others were from various other resorts.

Interestingly, at one dive site, Ras Za’atar, however, there were many divers and a lot of boats. I think most of those other divers must have been on liveaboards. It made me wonder what it was like when and if Sharm el Sheikh was actually crowded in the past. If all those hotels were full, one would imagine that all the dive sites would be incredibly crowded.

Anyway, it was a bit frustrating not being able to choose boat dives. There were a lot of dives at Ras Mohammed that looked great, but they were not the ones chosen by the boat divemaster on the days we went out. So, we decided to finish up our Advanced Open Water certification, since we could do those dives off the shore. We did that, and also did the enriched air certification.

Overall, it was a really good trip, and I think Reef Oasis was probably the best resort there for diving (even though there were not many divers there). However, I think if one wanted to stay at Sharm El Sheikh, as we did, as opposed to being on a liveaboard, and wanted to do all the interesting dives, one would need to allow at least two weeks, so that you would go out on the boat for enough days to go to all the various sites (Tiran, Dahab, Ras Mohammed, Thistlegorm wreck, etc.).

There are day trips to Luxor available to see the Valley of the Kings (Thebes). That would have been a lot of fun: you leave at 4 AM, fly there, see the sights, then fly back at night. Not too expensive either. Unfortunately they only run that flight once per week and it didn’t fit into our schedule.
