It lies at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba. There are four main coral reefs in this region; Jackson Reef, Woodhouse Reef, Thomas Reef and Gordon Reef. All named after the English officers who drew the first marine map of this region. This area is full of infinite number of corals, reef and pelagic.
Then we move to Thomas Reef; this part requires drift diving. It has no mooring points and it is characterized with many caves and crevices Followed by the Wood House Reef that is located between Thomas Reef and Jackson Reef is narrow and long. The site requires a drift dive and good weather to enjoy the dive. The water in this area is clear and offers beautiful sights of sea turtles, jackfish and many corals; moreover, it is one of the best sight to observe sharks.
Our next point is Jakson Reef that is located in the northernmost reef in Tiran and is known for its wrecks. Kormoran; for instance, a German ship which sank in 1984, is about 80 meters long and easily reached by scuba divers. Turtles and sharks could be observed. This area is also suitable for snorkeling.
Then Gordon Reef the diving in this spot is safe as there is fixed mooring sheltered from the wind. This site is known for the wreck of the Lovilla (or Lullia) which sank in 1981. It is a good place for snorkeling.
Reaching to Ras Um Seid; diving in this place is easy and pleasant as it is sheltered from the waves and also for having strong currents. It is also characteristic of a splendid gorgonian forest, rich in reef fauna .Ras Um Seid is located in the south of Naema bay.
Moving to Ras Mohamed where you find a famous diving spot -Yolanda Reef & Shark Reef- It is known for its very beautiful and extraordinary marine environment. It is a very vast area for diving.
Then moving to our next diving spot Dun raven it is a wreck diving that is considered as a great experience to explore the wreck of Dun raven.
After this we reach to Thistlegorm: Wreck diving on Thislegorm was absolutely great and well worth the boat ride from Sharm el Sheikh which lasted from dawn (5:00) till dusk (18:00). The Thistlegorm was sunk by a German bomber on October 6th 1941. She lies on a sand plain at a depth of 17-30 m and has a length of 126 m.
