The dive sites go from the Straits of Tiran in the north to Ras Mohammed in the south. With Shab Ali and the Thistlegorm wreck round in the Gulf of Suez . Your first days diving will be on 2 of the sites between Ras Nasrani and The Temple. These sites have the same corals and fish life and are much better to acclimatize to the area than the extremes of the area which have a potential for strong currents and very deep water.

The whole area is of uplifted coral, so all sites are close to shore as the coral starts at the waters edge. This means the shore reef extends 10-30 meters out at about 1 meter depth. The reef then drops vertically creating the typical walls of the area. These drop offs range from 10-800 meters. Care needs to be taken in crossing the reef if diving by shore and control of depth is needed during the dive.

With very deep water the possibility of strong currents is present. These can occur at any headland called "Ras" in Arabic, Ras Mohamed being a very good example of this. The narrowing of the Gulf of Aqaba at the site of Tiran island creates a funnel effect and is prone to strong currents caused by tidal action. This produces strong currents in the sites called the Straits of Tiran.
