Shark Reef & Yolanda Reef @Ras Mohammed

Shark Reef, covered in stunning hard and soft corals, is a vertical wall dropping to charted depths of nearly 800m. Yolanda Reef has a wide plateau with a coral garden and masses of pinnacles, each one a cleaning station teeming with fish.

Temple

At the center of the Ras Umm Sid bay, a huge coral pillar extends skywards, the reef wall drops to 15m. There are lots of pinnacles which are well worth exploring, this is a good spot to see the octopus. The rest of the site is featureless and it is easy to get lost so don’t forget your compass. Look out for Spanish Dancers, free swimming Moray Eels and other incredible life on a night dive here.
