Scuba Diving and Snorkeling in Fury Shoals, Red Sea, Egypt

Scuba diving information in Fury Shoals, Red Sea, Egypt

This reef starts is near the developing resort area of Hamata. We were heading to Zabargad Resort where you can dive right off the resort jetty and along a truly excellent house reef. We found huge grouper, tame gangs of batfish, friendly octopus and a very, nice small wall. The best sites are naturally offshore where a string of fringing reefs parallel the coast. There are some great dives, all of which have the most amazing hard corals in almost perfect condition. There is also a charming sailing boat wreck on Abu Galawa Soraya and at Sha'ab Sataya. The reef has deep walls while the inner lagoon has a resident pod of spinner dolphins. The dives we liked most though, and were least expected, were Sha'ab Claudio and Sha'ab Malahi, both of which had fascinating swim-throughs and tunnels that led beneath and around the sections of reef and felt like some sort of crazy maze. It is possible to dive at Marsa Alam throughout the year, but conditions are best during the summer months. There is a plankton bloom for a few weeks a year around April to May when visibility is reduced. Whale sharks visit the area during late spring and early summer.
