Who created the reef for satisfaction

The tour starts and ends in Hurghada. Fascinating reefs and steep walls await the diver here. Tiran is located at the entrance to the Gulf of Aqaba and consists of four main reefs, which are connected to one another by an underwater bridge. These reefs are named after the British cartographers (Jackson, Woodhouse, Thomas, Gordon). Tiran is world famous for its extraordinary diversity of corals and their strong southwestern currents. The home of many large fish in the Red Sea.

SS. Thistlegorm - Shaab Ali: The mystical SS Thistlegorm is a must for every Egypt diver. It is a treat for wreck enthusiasts, not least because of their spectacular cargo. But it also offers a variety of fish. Schools of barracudas or large tunas and snappers are not uncommon here. As an artificial reef, it also attracts countless coral fish. The stern with its cannons, the midship and fore ship, the bow and the cargo, as well as the vehicles, the two locomotives, the tenders and the watercars are worth seeing. The currents on the wreck are moderate, sometimes strong. The visibility is generally moderate and there are often many boats on site. The best time to dive is the early morning hours.

Abu Nuhas: Also known as the “ship cemetery”. Who hasn't heard of the 4 wrecks of Abu Nuhas? This reef has more ships than any other in the area. On the north side of Abu Nuhas, the four wrecks lie on a sandy seabed. Giannis D, SS Carnatic, Chrisoula K and Kimono M. On the south side there is a safe berth for liveaboard boats.

Ras Mohamed: This is one of the world's most famous dive sites and is located at the tip of the Sinai. Two small reefs are connected by a vertical sloping wall. From Shark Reef you let the current drift along a steep wall that drops several hundred meters to Yolanda Reef. The wall is completely covered with colorful corals. On the way to Yolanda Reef you reach a plateau with small blocks and coral islands. Arrived at the Yolanda Reef you can see the scattered remains of the wreck ‘Yolanda’, which drove with a load of toilets and baths. The whole area is surrounded by an extremely large amount of fish. Here it is always worthwhile to take a look into the blue! Here it is not uncommon to have an encounter with a tiger shark, a manta ray, a longimanus or a gray reef shark.

Jackson Reef - Tiran: This is the northernmost reef and on the northern edge is the wreck of a freighter, which is seen as a clear warning to ships. The dives here are usually started from the berths on the south side and you dive north over a forest of spectacular gorgonians, fan corals, which start at around 20 to 30 meters. There are so many different types of reef fish in this dive site. The dive can also be done as a drift dive from the anchorage to the east with the reef on the left. Here you dive along a remarkable steep wall with excellent coral growth.

Woodhouse Reef - Tiran: This is the longest of the 4 reefs in the Strait of Tiran. Here you can find reef sharks and eagle rays. You dive here with the current from south to north. On the southern part of the reef, the wall is full of corals up to about 30m. There is a canyon along the reef that starts at around 25m.

Thomas Riff - Tiran: This is the smallest reef in the street and diving here is determined by the weather as the currents can be extremely strong. At the end of the vertical walls you will find a large plateau on the southeast side, which begins at about 25m. This plateau often has sharks sleeping on the sandy areas and large sea fans at the end.

Gordon Reef - Tiran: This is the southernmost of the four reefs and has a different topography from the other 3 and offers a flat plateau and drop offs. A wide variety of reef fish and large schools of groupers can be seen here and on the sandy bottom at 4 to 5 meters. There is an eel garden here. On the reef there is a lighthouse, where the wreck of the Lovilla came up, which sits almost parallel to the wreck on Jackson Reef.

Laguna reef- Tiran: This is where the wrecks Kormoran and Million Hope are located. Both wrecks are north of the Laguna Reef and the weather must be good to dive them.
