The outcropping reef of Sha'ab Marsa Alam, with its particular curved shape and many pinnacles at the two southern and northern ends, offers different diving profiles, on the north-eastern side and at the two ends with the final part inside the lagoon.
For the first dive you usually dive directly from the boat, before arrival the equipment is prepared and the guides carry out a long briefing to prepare the divers to get to know the seabed, recognize the corals and the many marine species that offer sometimes surprising encounters , not just dolphins, but also barracudas, eagle rays, reef sharks, Napoleon wrasse, clownfish. The coral garden can reach a depth of over 30 meters, but the dive can be set at a depth of 15-20 meters, in the most colorful and brightest area.
The second dive is normally carried out on the southern side, you can dive directly from the boat or be taken to the east side by dinghy, go along the different pinnacles, at a maximum depth of 15-20 meters, then return directly to the boat.
