In the summer season, in the blue we can dive with a big school of snapper batfish and barracuda. A sandy saddle connects Shark’s reef to Yolanda reef, here we can find a lot moray and crocodile fish. Yolanda reef takes his name of a Cypriot merchant the ‘Yolanda’ that sank here on the night of April 1980.

Dahab is a Beduin city at around 80 kilometers of Sharm el Sheikh. The most popular dive sites are Blue Hole and Canyon. After 1 hour with the car across the Sinai desert, we are on the first dive site, the Blue Hole. This dive, usually starts from a sort of chimney in the reef called ‘El Bells’. We descend into this unforgettable chimney to a depth of 30 meters. Then we continue the dive to the right following a beautiful vertical wall rich of big Star coral, soft corals and gorgonians. The entrance of the Blue Hole is situated on an extraordinary coral garden at a depth of 7 meters. We can observe, on this circular reef, particular sponge called ‘Elephant ear sponge’ that grow up between big coral table and fire coral. A few minutes from the Blue Hole we have the dive site called ‘Canyon’. The entry is very easy, a lagoon of shallow water permits the access to a beautiful coral garden. The entrance of the Canyon is around 25 meters deep and the wall of it descend more than 30 meters deep. We can find a dense school of glassfish that dance around the divers. The main opening is at a depth of 14 meters and we exit into the sandy plateau where a lot of Garden eels come out.

The S.S.Thistlegorm was a British transport ship, it was built 1940 and in May 1941 it had left the port of Glasgow. The ship transported a cargo of munitions, 2 steam locomotives complete with two coal tenders, bombs, a hundred of BSA motorcycles, antitank mines, covers for airplane engines, medicines, different several Morris commercial C8 jeeps and other. This cargo was destinated to the British station in Egypt. The Italian-German forced controlled the Mediterranea sea from Lybia so the Thistlegorm circumnavigate Africa and passing through the Suez Canal to reach the port of Alexandria. Unfortunately the night of the 5-6 October 1941 on the strait of Gubal, two German Heinkel He III bombers attacked the ship. Now the S.S. Thistlegorm is the more wreck on the world. The maximum deep is 30 mt but the current is normally very strong and sometimes became hard to visit this wreck. Exploration of the ship is done in two dives. The first one is a general tour of the wreck, if the current is right we can see one of the two locomotives. On the second dive the exploration includes penetration of the 3 holds and, if we did not go on the first dive, we will dive on the Capitan’s bathroom. The wreck became a perfect habitat for the sea life : Grouper, batfish, crocodile fish, fusilier , jackfish, moray, lionfish, anemone fish clownfish and, on the holds, big school of soldierfish.

Scuba divers get to explore parts of the world that most people will never have the opportunity of seeing other than maybe in a documentary. But even divers are sometimes limited to where they can go and what they can see. PADI TecRec courses can open up opportunities to experience new dive sites and areas beyond the recreational realm. Started in the form of cave diving, technical scuba diving takes divers beyond the typical recreational limits and allows them to do more. Typically, one or more of the following has to occur for a dive to be considered technical diving: Diving beyond 40 meters/130 feet deep. Required stage decompression. Diving in an overhead environment beyond 40 linear meters/130 linear feet of the surface. Accelerated decompression and or the use of variable gas mixtures during the dive. Simply put, to explore where few people can. As a technical diver, you would get to see amazing wrecks that are hidden away and untouched, as well as marine life that don’t live in your typical diving zone. Other people simply like the hard work and want to be challenged. For them, the more effort and planning they put into their dives, the greater the reward. So how do you get started? Divers who are interested in getting involved in technical diving can get the training and knowledge they need through PADI TecRec courses. Each course level will introduce you to new gear, planning and procedures that are necessary for the diving limit. In these courses, you’ll start as a beginner, but when finished, will be a qualified PADI TecRec diver able to beyond recreational levels.
