Rad Mohamed aka Ras Mohammed - Egypt


Loading...
From SportDiver Planet’s 50 Greatest Dives, #50, Giant stride into these waters on any site, and you’ll swear you’ve gone to dive heaven. At the tip of the Sinai peninsula — which divides Africa and Asia — is Ras Mohammed Marine Park. It is the meeting point of the Red Sea and its offshoots, the Aqaba and Suez gulfs. The reef is tantalizingly close to the surface and drops off precipitously into the blue thousands of feet. You don’t need a degree in marine biology to realize that this is the perfect recipe for a coral reef on steroids. The walls are covered in colorful soft corals and the reefs in clouds of bright-orange anthias. The fish found here hit every size on the marine-life scale, from tiny nudibranchs to giant Napoleon wrasse. And just when you think it cannot get any better, in the summer months, great schools of snapper, jacks, unicornfish and barracuda gather here. — AM
