    Mini Safari Ras Mohamed-Tiran - 3 Day

    This three-day safari is a popular option especially if you're not sure if a liveaboard cruise will be the right thing or you want to combine your stay in Sinai with land-based activities. Fantastic coral gardens, drop offs, endless walls and colorful slopes rich in marine life will be visited on this safari.

    1. Day Evening: transfer to New Marina (El Wataneya) Port and embark. Welcome on board, cabin arrangement and boat-briefing. Permission work with port authority, sailing very early next morning.

    2. Day Morning: check dive at Temple or Ras Katy. Next dive is Jackfish Alley where you can easily enter the small caves there. The third dive will be at Shark and Yolanda Reef, the southernmost tip of the Sinai Peninsula with an endless wall - unique in the Red Sea. If you like night diving then Temple will be a great location to jump in.

    3. Day Morning: boat sails to the Strait of Tiran. Your first dive will take you to Jackson Reef the most northern in the Strait of Tiran. After breakfast get ready to visit Woodhouse Reef, which is perfect for a drift dive along the sheltered eastern side. Your third dive of the day will depend on sea conditions either at North or South Lagoon and an optional night dive at the South Lagoon.

    4. Day Morning: first dive of the day is usually Thomas Reef, the smallest of the four Tiran reefs but probably the most interesting and richest in marine life. Next dive is Gordon Reef, which gently slopes to the south and forms a large plateau. After lunch you will leave the reefs of Tiran heading towards Sharm for your third dive at Ras Nasrani, Ras Ghamila or may be Ras Um Sid - your choice. Return to New Marina (El Wataneya) Port and disembark.

    You need to be a PADI Open Water certified diver or equivalent with at least 15 logged dives. PADI OWD´s are able to join in night dives onboard if they have previous night dives logged.

    PADI Advanced Open Water diver or equivalent is recommended for some of the more demanding dive sites visited on this safari. You must have dived in the last year and recorded this in your log book to join this safari. Scuba Tune Up is available on request. This trip is suitable for snorkelers to join.

    The itinerary is an example so if you have a special wish for a certain place in this area just let your dive guide know. Liveaboard itineraries are subject to various unpredictable changes including weather conditions. All dives and especially some wreck dives are subject to divers experience and weather permitted. Liveaboard itineraries are depending on Egyptian Government, Coast Guard and/or Marine Police approval. Every effort is made but we cannot guarantee diving at specific sites. The final decision lies with the captain and guide. Safety always comes first!

    Jackson Reef

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    Most northerly of the reefs of Tiran and the northern limit of day boats from Sharm El Sheikh. The wreck of the Lara lies at the northern end. There is superb wall diving along its entire perimeter, with numerous buttresses and gullies. Sightings of sharks, turtles and other big fish are not uncommon and you will find a huge diversity of different corals and sponges as well as clouds of trigger fish, masked puffers and banner fish. At the point you may be lucky and spot a Hammerhead in summer.

    Thomas Reef

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    Between Gordon and Woodhouse reefs, smaller round reef with walls plunging deep and fully covered with soft coral, gorgonians and colourful fish life. It is almost possible to circumnavigate this reef in one dive. The east wall plunges dramatically to great depths with a mass of brightly coloured soft corals. The west wall is darker with overhangs and caves but is a great drift dive with sightings of Trevally and Tuna in the blue and schooling reef fish close to the reef.

    Ras Nasrani

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    The reef drops from the shallow bays to a wall down to 60m+ wall with many caves and overhangs. The best diving is among the big coral heads (or ergs) in the shallow areas. A good spot for Spanish dancers and cone shells in the sandy gullies.

    Ras Um Sid

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    Ras Um Sid is located at the North Point of Sharm El Sheikh Harbor and is a coral shelf that begins at the shore. The reef slopes down to a depth of 80 feet and a sandy bottom. This is a steep sloping wall, extending from the point at Ras Umm Sid inward toward the bay to the west. The reef follows the shoreline, and is marked by intermittent sand patches, coral heads and pinnacles.
    Coral attractions include gorgonians, acropora, fire corals, dense soft coral patches and some substantial coral formations.
    The coral heads are the home of many reef fish. Among the many fish found here is the lionfish. In the blue waters off of the reef, are many open ocean fish including rays, barracudas and sharks, and on the sandy bottom, crocodile fish. There are also big and small jacks/trevally, emperor and regal angelfish, various parrotfish, Picasso and other triggerfish, yellow spine and ringtail surgeons, Napoleon wrasse and moray eels.
    The typical depth range for Ras Um Sid is 20 to 80 feet and is best accessed by a shore dive, dive boat and local guide. The expertise required for this area is a snorkeled, novice, advanced, dive master or instructor.

    Temple

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    The Temple is located on the north side of Sharm El Sheikh Harbour. It is a group of three pinnacles that rise up from 65 feet 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 colour. 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 colours 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 10 to 65 feet deep and is best accessed by a boat dive or local guide. The expertise required for this site is a snorkeled, novice, advanced, dive master or instructor.

    Jackfish Alley

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    Fisherman's Bank, also known as Jackfish Alley and Stingray Alley, is located on the north side of the Ras Muhammad Peninsula and is within the boundaries of the Ras Muhammad National Park. It is a popular shore dive site and is located a short distance from the beach. The reef top is sand and has a sloping drop-off. There are many colourful reef fish like the emperor angelfish, regal angelfish, yellow band angelfish and pairs of blue cheek butterfly fish.
    Beginning with a sheer wall, the early section of the wall is very porous, with lots of small holes and crevices, and boasts a couple of penetrable caves, each featuring separate exit and entrance holes.
    Proceeding southward, the wall gives way to a sandy plateau at around 20m (65ft), well covered with coral heads and outcrops. After widening out considerably, the plateau narrows at its southern end to form a small channel or alley. Further out from the wall, a second, seeper plateau can be found. Coral growth is good overall and the fish population is excellent, with plenty of the jacks and stingrays that give the site at least two of its names, and all the usual reef fish.
    The typical depth range of Fisherman's Bank is 10 to 80 feet and is best accessed by a shore dive, boat dive, or local guide. The expertise required for this area is a snokler, novice to advance.

    Shark and Yolanda Reefs

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    When divers think of Sinai, they think of Shark Reef and Yolanda. The two reefs are actually the twin peaks of a single coral seamount rising just off the Ras Muhammad coast, separated from the mainland by a shallow channel.
    Shark Reef, the easternmost of the two, boasts a sheer wall dropping to well past 50m (164ft) along its northeast and eastern sides, giving way to a steep reef slope as the reef proceeds southwest toward Yolanda. A shallow saddle lies between the two reefs at 18 to 20m (60-65ft). A second shallow patch lies south of Yolanda. This second flat patch is the site of what remains of the Yolanda, a wrecked freighter. The ship itself slipped into the deep in 1986 after a severe storm, but much of its cargo remains, incongruously strewn across the reef.
    Coral is excellent, with good if sparse growth on the wall sections and dense coral gardens on the shallower flat areas. Big pelagics and schooling fish swarm these reefs in the thousands. The Most impressive concentration is on the wall at Shark Reef. On the reef, hundreds of different reef fishes can be spotted as can moray eels of a meter (3ft) and bluespotted and blackspotted stingrays.

    Woodhouse Reef

    Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

    The Woodhouse Reef is located between Thomas and Jackson reef, Woodhouse reef is the narrowest and longest reef in Tiran. With no moorings this dive is always done as a drift. The Reef offers a sheer wall dropping down to a sandy ledge at 30 meters and dropping away into the abyss. The most interesting point of this dive site is the famous canyon that opens out at a depth of 30 meters and runs parallel to the main axis of the reef. Here divers will have the opportunity to spot black coral at a depth of around 22 meters and lots of pelagic fish cruising past in the blue.
