The whole area is of uplifted coral, so all sites are close to shore as the coral starts at the waters edge. This means the shore reef extends 10-30 meters out at about 1 meter depth. The reef then drops vertically creating the typical walls of the area. These drop offs range from 10-800 meters. Care needs to be taken in crossing the reef if diving by shore and control of depth is needed during the dive.
Excellent trip we went on. Reasonable prices, English speaking guide Hasan who also was funny and very helpful for the whole day!! Definitely good choice and we would use them again if we in Egypt next!
