Scuba diving

Fri, 07/31/2009 - 14:05 -                                Flickr To immediately experience what the Red Sea has to offer, you need go no further than the end of our jetty. As soon as you enter the calm sheltered sea, you are on our own pristine well kept house reef.

Featuring a large sandy plateau with depths from three to eight meters and barely there currents, our house reef provides the perfect environment to conduct course, experience and pleasure dives for divers of all levels.

Sun, 02/10/2013 - 18:00 - DCIM\100GOPROFlickr There are 76 recognised diving sites within daily boat distance of Sharm El Sheikh. A good collection of these are to be found within a few short minutes of travel from the Four Seasons hotel. The Red Sea is recognized as one of the leading diving destinations of the world and visitors to Sinai Blues can enjoy reef systems, coral gardens, wall diving, drift diving, night diving, wreck diving or just pottering around the shallows on the local sites. Water temperatures rarely drop below 22c but rise to 30c in the hot summer months where marine life comes into its own.

Currents are small and the sites are sheltered from wind and waves. Looking from the sea, we are located a few hundred meters from White Knights dive site. The best sites nearest to us are Ras Bob, Ras Nasrani and a little further along is Ras Gamilla, (translated from Arabic means beautiful head), which offers stunning diving with plenty to see in gentle conditions.

Each reef bears the name of a cartographer who mapped the area in the 19th century. In order of appearance from the sea, they are called; Gordon, Thomas, Woodhouse and Jackson reefs. The narrowest strait is the Grafton Passage which is the strip of water between the reefs and Tiran Island itself. It is well indicated on the charts and has lighthouses marking its position. The wider side of the straits lies between the Sinai Coast opposite the town of Nabq and is called the Enterprise Passage. These four reefs are famous for their diversity of marine life and coral formations. Their close proximity to our resort and ease of access with our fast RIBs make them a favourite with our guests.

The Park has become a ‘must see’ on the itinerary of most visitors and few will leave the region of Sharm without finding out what it has to offer. Unlike other national parks, Ras Mohammed has two major draws; the setting above and below the waterline. Each is equally spectacular in scenery and each pulls in thousands of visitors every week.

Fri, 11/14/2008 - 11:47 - Shipwrecks 2Flickr The Red Sea is steeped in maritime history, from ancient times to the Second World War and the latter parts of the 20th Century, many great shipwrecks floundered near to Sharm El Sheikh.

Close to home, in the Straits of Tiran we have the wrecks Kormoran, (formerly known as Zingara), and Million Hope. Both within a 20min speedboat ride from the from the resort, but strictly only when the sea conditions allow us.
