This area is the channel that lies between the Sinai coast on the North end of Sharm El Sheikh and the Island of Tiran. Along with many other dive sites, here you can find four coral reefs that span the sound and offer some of the most exhilarating and spectacular diving in the world.
The reefs were named after four British cartographers who were the first to survey the area in the 19th century, to produce a nautical map of this region. Messer’s Gordon, Thomas, Woodhouse and Jackson.
Thomas reef is popular with the Technical divers for its deep canyon.
For the recreational diver, Jackson reef is often referred to as the jewel in the crown with its “stunning coral garden” on each extremity. These areas are commonly called the “garden” or “aquarium”. A must for any diver who visits this area.
