Straits of Tiran ; formed from an island to the East and the Sinai mainland to the west. The reefs are named after British cartographers and are called Jackson Reef, Woodhouse Reef, Thomas Reef and Gordon Reef.
The effects of deep waters, continental plate and narrow channel combine to funnel a strong supply of nutrient rich waters to the coral reefs. This in turn creates a food chain linking the plankton, coral and marine organisms and reef fish to the Sharks, Manta and Eagle Rays that are frequently encountered here. These unique reefs, which feature steep walls, canyons and caverns, provide a wealth of outstanding colors and huge schools of fish such as Snappers, Barracudas, Bat Fish and Jacks. Currents can be dangerously strong at the extremes of the reefs and care must be taken to assess both their direction and strength to avoid danger.
The Local Sites; the stretch of coastline between Sharm El Sheikh to Ras Nasrani (opposite Gordon Reef at the mouth of the Straits of Tiran) provide a wealth of unrivalled diving adventures for beginners and experienced divers alike. The geography of this coastline restricts access to many of the sites by land and therefore diving is mainly done from daily boat excursions.
The dive sites differing features range from stunning walls and canyons to coral slopes and gardens. The main dive sites are known as Ras Nasrani, Ras Bob, White Knight, Shark's Bay, Ras Umm Sid and others.
