This dive claims the lives of a number of divers every year due to nitrogen narcosis or improper use of equipment. Dive cautiously and you might be counted among the thousands that do not experience problems. The Canyon is a popular dive, although challenging for the inexperienced diver.

The dive site named the Huts (also known as Abu Talha) displays huge corals in the shallows, with abundant marine life and unusual formations.
