Ras Mohammed National Park Egypt

The Sinai Peninsula is a piece of land that lies between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea.

Ras Mohammed is at the southernmost tip of the Sinai Peninsula about 12Km from Sharm El Sheikh and divides the red sea into the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Aqaba

In 1982 Israel withdrew from the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt resumed control, and a year later Ras Mohammed was declared for protection from fishing and human activities.

The average water temperature in May is 24 degrees Celsius making it an ideal time to dive. The air temperature is around 31degrees during the day although this will be lower out in the Red Sea.

The Ras Mohammed Park covers over 300 KM2 of sea and stretches and contains the two islands of Tiran and Sanafir. The coral along the shoreline is home to over 200 species and the park contains more than 1000 species of fish, 40 species of starfish, many different urchins and crustaceans. Green turtles and hawksbill turtles can be seen as can dolphin and sharks.

The area is a haven for divers, there are wrecks Like the Dunraven a steam ship that sank in 1876 and was only discovered in 1979 ranging from 18m to 24m in depth it is possible to get inside the wreck through numerous holes. There you can expect to find Glass fish, Bat fish, Moray Eels with soft and black corals.
