Top dive site

Very rare to get to dive here due to its exposed location. However if you get the chance then definitely give it a go. Fantastic reef with a breathtaking drop off.

This diving place is a very nice place, but there can be some current and it take a litle bit of the fun. The place is beuatiful with many correls and in the North part is the a very big Gorgonia betwin 2 rocks.

Stopped here on a mini safari with Deep Dark Safari and did a fantastic dive. The reef has recovered completely and is a mass of beautiful soft and hard corals surrounded by fish of all kinds. There's a bit of a current in places so it's not a novice dive, but it is worth the effort if you can deal... More

The Careless reef is a very good diving place. It is not sure that you can come to the reef al times. There must be NO WIND before you can get there. The place is excellent and the reef is not damaged from many divers

It is an must visit place when you go to Hurghada, the sea world you see is stunning! If you cannot afford diving or you are afraid to do so, snorkeling will do the job!
