Dive Sites Dive Site

  • Gordon Reef

    Gordon Reef

    The closest of the Tiran dive sites & made famous with the wreck of the Loullia sitting atop the exposed north face of this reef. Pretty coral plateau spreads out to the south west of the reef making this a popular dive less exposed to the elements.

  • Thomas Reef

    Thomas Reef

    One of the most spectacular of the Tiran reefs with superb drift diving along rich multicoloured walls and if conditions are favourable you’ll be able to dive the entire reef.

  • Woodhouse Reef

    Woodhouse Reef

    Located between Thomas and Jackson an easy drift dive along the south wall with its popular canyon and sandy plateau hosting both hard & soft corals. It’s not uncommon to encounter Jackfish, Turtle and Reef sharks here.

  • Jackson Reef

    Jackson Reef

    The most northerly of the reefs that make up Tiran and known for the remains of the wreck of the Lara that sits on the northern tip of the reef. A beautiful coral garden often hosting Turtle’s is the most commonly dived area of the reef but the north east side is becoming well known for Hammerhead encounters during the summer months.

    Sandy plateau with coral pinnacles running parallel to the reef before encountering the drop off. Popular drift dive with spectacular underwater landscape that hosts Batfish, Grouper and Blue Spotted Stingray feeding on a sandy plateau or resting under large Table Corals.

  • Ras Mohamed Nat. Park

    Ras Mohamed Nat. Park

    Shark Reef and Jolanda are probably the most famous reefs located in Ras Mohamed & a must for all visiting divers. Stunning drop offs, shallow sand plateau and coral gardens host a huge variety of fish life that make this one of the top dive sites in the world. And let’s not forget the remains of the wreck Jolanda here. Schooling fish, Moray, Turtle and reef sharks are all regularly spotted.

  • Dunraven Wreck

    British steamer sunk in 1876 & made famous by BBC documentary ‘The World About Us’ in 1979. Wreck lies upside down at 15-29m and is populated by large Groupers and schools of Lionfish & Glassfish.

  • Thistlegorm

    Thistlegorm

    Probably the most famous diveable wreck in the northern hemisphere. Armed British merchant ship sunk in 1941 and carrying a wealth of supplies for the British army in North Africa. Today you can still dive amongst lorries, jeeps, motorbikes, ammunitions and steam locomotives! Two dives are made on this excursion which gives just enough time to explore this WW2 time capsule.
