The diving on the Red Sea offers a wide variety of sites suitable for various diver’s experience levels and includes amazing reef dives and wrecks including the famous Thistlegorm. Dive areas include local sites of Sharm el Sheikh, Ras Mohammed, and Sha’ab Mahmoud. The local house reef gently slopes down in a series of ledges that make it ideal for training dives. It is also a great site for photographers wanting to see the abundant marine life. Whale sharks and mantas visit the bay in the springtime; hence, where the name came from. Eagle rays, giant moray, and Napoleon are very common here. The dive operation offers nitrox but does not support technical diving or rebreathers.
