Ras Um Sid

(27°50.832' N, 34°18.833' E)

 

Located to north of Sharm El Sheikh main port, Ras Um Sid is a coral shelf that begins at the shore. Following the shoreline the reef is marked by sandy patches, coral heads and pinnacles.

 

The dive itself features an outstanding, superb gorgonian fan coral forest just perfect for photography. Towards the edge of the reef current can be strong with the possibility of spotting open ocean fish including rays and barracudas, sometimes sharks. Continue your dive to the plateau covered with coral heads that are the home to many reef fish. Among them lionfish and on the sandy bottom, crocodile fish. There are also big and small jacks, emperor fish, various parrotfish, picasso and triggerfish, napoleon wrasse and moray eels.

 

Look out for a coral head with shimmering glassfish and beautiful soft and hard corals. The dive is a not-to-miss one!
