Fish life includes milions of anthias, Napoleonfish, large tuna and schools of jacks and snappers. Shelving plateaus booked the reef. The south plateau features a garden of soft corals, gorgonians and long curvy sea whips bewteen 20 and 40m. Also keep an eye out for the tresher shark. There is an archway between 50 and 60m. The ocasional oceanic whitetip shark can visit this site. Draped in colorful soft corals the north plateau drops in stages from 8, 25 to 40m and more. Be aware that the current is often very strong, especially at the point. When conditions are right whitetip- and grey reef sharks visit the site.

Brothers

The islands are a dive site featuring corals and two wrecks: Numidia and Aida. The islands are also famed for encounters with Oceanic Whitetip and Hammerhead Sharks. However, they are only suitable for very experienced divers due to the islands' isolated position, the challenging dive conditions, and very strong currents. During high season there are many dive safari boats around both islands. In 2012, CNN ranked Big Brother ninth in a list of the world's 50 best dive sites, and second in the Red Sea.

Daedalus Reef

Daedalus Reef which is also known as Abu Kizan is a 400-meter-long and 100-meter-wide (1,310–330 ft) standalone reef in the Egyptian Red Sea situated about 90 kilometers from Marsa Alam. There is a small artificial island in the center of the reef, which hosts a lighthouse constructed in 1863 and rebuilt in 1931. Daedalus reef is a well-known place for diving because of good chances to see pelagic fish, such as hammerhead sharks, and an abundance of corals. In the high season one can find many dive safari boats staying overnight, anchored to the reef.

Shaab Mansour (Shaab Maksur)

This is a very large reef situated on a north-south axis with at least three diving spots. It is similar to Abu Kefan or Elphinstone. On the north and south side there is a large plateau with a drop-off. The north plateau in particular can only be dived when the sea is calm. It starts at 22m and goes down to 40m, where the drop-off starts and continues down to 90m+. The west and east sides of the reef are purely drop-off. The south plateau starts at 18m, sloping to 38m, before cascading into the blue for more than 100m. At 20m you will find two pinnacles that rise up to 6m from the surface. Their position next to the mooring point makes them perfect for your safety stop.

Shaab Sataya (Dolphin Reef)

Shaab Sataya, also known as the Dolphin Reef is located at the south-eastern tip of the Fury Shoal diving area off Marsa Alam. This horseshoe shaped reef has been aptly named after the friendly mammals that can be spotted regularly on site. Additionally, you’ll be amazed by whitetips, fusiliers, Spanish dancers and parrotfish, at different depths, from 4 to 40 metres. The site can be reached by boat from Marsa Alam and is included on many liveaboard Red Sea dive safari trails. If you’re not really into scuba, it is also a perfect destination for snorkelling.

Zabargad

This site lies on the south side of Zabargad Island, the only large island in this stretch of the Red Sea. It is commonly used as a base for exploring nearby Rocky Island, so it is a popular overnight stop for live-aboards, which take advantage of its excellent shelter. Zabargad offers an excellent range of reef features in relatively shallow water, so the site is often used by operators for night dives.
