Day trips (some of the dives included in dive package price and visited on a rotational basis)
- Ras Nausrani and Ras Bob: Shallow coral bays or 'secret gardens' lead into a steep drop-off where manta rays are occasionally spotted in the summer months.
- Ras Umm Sid: One of the most popular local sites, translated as the headland of Sid's mother, is home to the largest gorgonian forest in Sharm. Residents include a school of chevron barracuda and numerous batfish. It is not uncommon to spot passing pelagics.
- The Temple: A large rock tower surrounded by a "necklace" of smaller sheltered by the headland of Ras umm Sid. Divers either spend the dive winding in and out of these towers on the lookout for the resident crocodilefish, large morays. This site is one of our night diving destinations.
