  •      Dive site: Tobia Island  
      Depth: 5-30 m
    Difficulty: **

    This dive site is easy to dive but for experienced divers there is lots to see between 7 and 30 meters. Often this reef is visited by dolphins.
     
         
  •      Dive site: Tobia Hamra  
      Depth: 5-25 m
    Difficulty: ***
    A good way to dive here is to be dropped further out to the east and drop down the sloping wall to 30 m. The reef is a series of thin sandy plateaus bordered and surrounded by masses of hard boulder coral which you can weave your way in and out of. There is a thin sand plateau at 7m with lots of small marine life on the reef wall so this is an ideal site for all levels of divers. 
     
         
  •     Dive site: Tobia Arba
     
      Depth: 10-30 m
    Difficulty: **
    Arbaa means 4 in Arabic, so the dive site’s name means Four Reef Pieces. While there are four main ergs here (one split under the surface, making it appear as two), there is also a further erg within easy swimming distance. The bases of the ergs are at around 10 m with the seafloor sloping gently away to the south, where the boats normally moor.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Abu Soma Garden
     
      Depth: 5-40 m
    Difficulty: **

    Parallel to the coast up "Ras Abu Soma" can this hard coral garden be found. The best dive is on depth between 5 and 15 meters. Also suitable for beginners.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Ras Abu Soma
     
      Depth: 4-40 m
    Difficulty: **

    Parallel There is a large lagoon in the reef top and this site is easily accessible from the shore, where in recent years a jetty has been constructed as well as a dive vessel. Current isn’t common here. The reef drops down to 15 m where there is a sandy slope littered with pristine coral formations - acropora table coral and large border coral.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Shaab Saiman
     
      Depth: 10-35 m
    Difficulty: ***

    Parallel It is an elongated piece of reef, separated from the main coastline reef. This creates a sand canyon between Shaab Saiman and the coastal reef which at its shallowest is only 7 m from the surface and slopes away 40 m to the west. On the outside of Shaab Saiman is a 15 m plateau with coral heads and coral encrusted boulders, which slopes away to the north.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Tobia Kebir
     
      Depth: 7-17 m
    Difficulty: **
    Ideal for all levels of divers as there is rarely any current here. If current is present, it will normally run from north to south coming down the sides of the main, oval-shaped reef. On the eastern side of the reef (this side has more coral growth than the westside), there is nice soft coral and plenty of hard coral - cone coral, raspberry coral, table coral and odd patch of yellow waver coral, which looks like a large lettuce.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Tobia Soraya
     
      Depth: 10-15 m
    Difficulty: **

    There are a lot of interesting swim-throughs for careful divers here - one located on the southwestern reef tip at 5 m, another on the southwestern reef tip at 12 m and a thurd in the central reef pinnacle at 6 m. There is a proliferation of coral and marine life here, with large table corals (acropora) and occasional Red Sea fans (gorgonias) on the eastern side.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Gamul Soraya
     
      Depth: 8-18 m
    Difficulty: **
    A very interesting reef, having a lot to offer despite its small depth. You’ll see garden eels, sometimes in their hundreds, with up to 30 cm (2/3 of their body length) out of their sandy burrows. Their tails never leave their burrows and they feed on plankton which drifts by in the current. As you approach, these creatures quickly retreat into their solitary homes. Along the eastern side there is a lovely colourful hard and soft coral.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Gamul Kebir
     
      Depth: 6-18 m
    Difficulty: ***

    Close to the north tip there are 5 small ergs or coral blocks, which are worth investigation. The sand floor gives way to patches of seagrass and small eel gardens and on the ergs themsleves there is some lovely soft coral growth and a myriad of small marine life. Here the seabed is at around 14 m and blue spotted rays are common with the occasional black sand rays present and even eagle rays.
     
         
  •     Dive site: Panorama Reef
     
      Depth: 10-400 m
    Difficulty: *****

    More than one dive is essential to make the most of what this site has to offer. To the south is a vertical wall with deep fissures and antheas clouding the water. To the east, there is a sloping plateau between 20 to 30 m, where large shoals of blue lunar fussiliers dart towards the reef. Tuna, travellay and barracuda patrol the blue water. It is also worth spending time looking for the occasional white-tip or grey reef shark.
     
         
  •     Dive site:  Middle Reef
     
      Depth: 5-30 m
    Difficulty: ***

    The reef is large, circular shaped, located on an even larger coral encrusted plateau which comes up from the deep ocean. The size of the reef makes it ideal for more than one dive. To the northeast is a deep sloping wall with some excellent hard coral growth and large gorgonian sea fans, as well as whip corals. Occasional white-tip sharks, grey reef sharks and an odd lone trutle can be seen here.
     
         
  •     Dive site:  Shaab Sheer
     
      Depth: 5-20 m
    Difficulty: **

    Moving on around ito the north will bring you into the canyon, which has evolved over aeons forming caves, swim throughs and overhangs. To the north you will find a large hard coral garden with its abundance of snapper, sweetlip, grouper, wrasse and morays. It is in this coral garden that you may be lucky enough to dive with dolphins if the swell is right, as the resident school of dolphins love surfing in these waves.
     
         
  •     Dive site:  Cannon Reef
     
      Depth: 5-25 m
    Difficulty: **

    Moving Beginners as well as experienced divers can see lots here. Apart from a lot of small fish there are also eagle rays and turtle known to be here. Dolphins have been seen here as well.
     
         
  •     Dive site:  Shaab Claude
     
      Depth: 5-22 m
    Difficulty: **

    The site is famous for its resident family of long nose hawk fish (five in total) and they can be found in a large cluster of fan and brush corals that grow out of a cave in 15m and reach up towards just below the surface, on the southern side of the westerly block. Apart from this there are frequent sightings of napoleon, stonefish, nudibranches, crocodile fish, blue spotted sting rays, lion fish and turtles.
     
         
  •     Dive site:  Abu Kafan
     
      Depth: 20-400 m
    Difficulty: *****

    A very nice wall dive on an offshore reef that emerges up from the deep. There is an extra erg stuck on the southern end of the reef. As well as all the usual reef fish, you can see blue-spotted rays and giant moray here. In he gap between the erg and the main reef, a large shoal of what might have been herring came in out of the blue and engulfed us before swimming off again...
