Reefscape at Ras Nasrani, Red Sea dive site

Scuba Diving in Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Ras Nasrani

Location: North of Naama Bay and Ras Bob, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt

Description: Fringing reef

Length: 500 metres (1600 feet)

Depth: 30 - 45 metres (100 - 150 feet)

Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)

Rating: ***

The dive starts on a small wall down to about 45m then towards the end of the dive it becomes shallower. At the start of the dive you will find fan corals, also keep an eye in the blue. Upon reaching a sandy alleyway we are at about 12m and there used to be a red anemone here but it has disapeared now. A dive centre has put a few hoops down now also. The dive finishes amongst a beautiful porite coral area where you can do your safety stop and surface for the boat pickup.

The Red Anenome is back and the hoops have disapeared Jan 2009.

I am a PADI Instructor in Sharm and rate this as one of my favourite reefs. It can be dived in many ways and is also beautiful for those limited to 12m and photographers. Usually a drift to the north, sometimes strong over the coral garden after the sandy patch, but drops when the viz gets poor at the end (lol viz 'poor' in the Red Sea is about 15-20m). Look for torpedo rays, manta, nudibranchs, and watch out for the titan triggerfish!
