RAS ABU GALUM

Peaceful beauty

Ras Abu Galum is a stunning dive spot that lies in one of the Sinai’s protected National Park areas. Located in the far North of Dahab it can be accessed by camel or alternatively by boat.

DIFFICULTY: Intermediate

DEPTH: 30m

CURRENTS: sometimes

SNORKELING: yes

A sandy slope descends away from the shore with the reef wall starting on both sides.
Dive to the left where the reef table swings wide into a steep wall dive with pinnacles and dramatic rock formations, always keep one eye fixed on the blue as you will often see trevallies and jacks while the resident turtle crosses beneath them close to the wall.
Ascend a bit shallower and you will find beautiful fire corals and schools of reef fish.

Particularity

The Ras Abu Galum bay is extremely sheltered and diving conditions are good in all weather.
