Scuba Diving in Marsa Alam, the southern Red Sea


Elphinstone Reef
El Phinstone Reef is one of the most frequented dive sites in the southern Red Sea area. It’s a long narrow reef reaching approximately 300 meters, and lies 12 km away from Ras Abu Dabbab. Its spectacular walls drop far below 100 meters on both sides of the reef. The reef is famous for its grey reefs, hammerheads, and thresher sharks. The north plateau is where most dives are done, while the east is a great drop-off with a huge gorgonian and softer corals. The west is less steep and slightly sandier than the east. The plateaus of the south feature a garden of soft corals. Strong currents make it the perfect place for drift diving.

It is famous for its amount of dolphins with which you can snorkel. Dives are often performed near the pinnacles in the south-west, which are shallow and easily navigated. For a drift dive, it is better to go to the outer reef, where a nice wall is descending gradually to 20 meters form where it disappears.

Shaab Mansour
