Abu Dabbab Dugong update

We're currently in Marsa for a while and just wanted to let anyone going to Abu Dabbab to try and swim with the Dugong know they will now need to go to the bay next door at the Equinox beach resort, as the resident Dugong has now decamped there (some say because too many people were trying to touch it). There are a couple of dive outfits that offer trips to the bay to see it, so you may still get lucky as we did, and it was well worth it :) Just please...don't try and touch it, and it may just stick around for a while longer.

Total lottery if the Dugong appears. It maybe there it may not but do not get your hopes attached of seeing it. It is a possibility but do not be upset if you do not. Remember it is not a circus with set times and sometimes you have to have patience and wait. In all the years I have been visiting I have only seen it twice.
