Top 5 Winter Dives Sharm

As much as the seasons affect the plants, trees and animals we see changes in the underwater world.

The diving in Sharm changes through out the year and we have put together our favourite winter sites.

 

Top 5 Winter Dives Sharm

  1. Jackson Reef
    This is a year round favorite for our entire team.  In the winter the reef is alive with small fish life and the colour of the corals is simply breathtaking. A standard mooring dive will take you to the red anemone at the front and to the gorgonian in search of the Long Nose Hawk fish – always ready to pose for a shot.  Then up to the corner and the spectacular coral garden.  Time spent seeking out the numerous stone fish and scorpian fish is always fun.  A great dive for the naturalist and photographer alike.
  2. Sharm Hot OfferRas Za’atar
    A firm favourite due to the number and variety of Nudibranchs which can be found.  With perfect currents you can glide by the reef at a slow and steady pace taking in the macro life.
  3. Jackfish Alley
    A spectacular winter dive which can be done in so many different ways.  Drifting over and out across the coral plateau, cruising along the wall, taking in the large glass fish pinnacle and swimming through the overhangs.  The occasional reef shark can be spotted even in winter months.
  4. Ras Umm Sid
    Done by shore or boat Ras Umm Sid is a great dive.  The giant gorgonian fan corals make this dive a photographers dream.  the sand plateau at the corner slopes gently down and the occasional reef shark can be spotted here in the winter months.
  5. Local Night Diving
    With the sun setting at around 5.30 pm the winter months are the ideal time for night dives.  Throughout the year the night diving in Sharm is fascinating.  Whether by boat or shore you are guaranteed a very interesting dive – hunting morays and lion fish, spectacular corals spreading across the reef, lobster, octopus and even parrot fish in their mucus sleeping sacks.  For our entire team we take every opportunity to don our kit after dark in the winter months.
