Angelfish North and Angelfish Coral Garden are both started by entering through a small break in the reef table and descending into the shallow coral garden area. In these shallows, we often encounter mating Robust Ghost Pipefish and Pegasus.


The northern dive takes us to a beautiful cleaning station on 29 meters, which is pulsing with marine life including Glass Fish. Yellow mouth Moray’s are found in large numbers, but the main attraction is the sheer number of cleaner shrimp living here. Periodically we are lucky enough to find a pair of mating Ornate Ghost Pipefish hiding in the cleaning station, making the dive even more spectacular. 

Angelfish Coral Garden is a slow, exploratory dive searching for the numerous Morays, giant Scorpion Fish and various Nudibranches who live here. You can often find Spanish Dancers moving through the sand here, or Eagle Rays swimming past us in the blue. Another highlight here are the huge Table Corals, many of which have become so old that they are covered in a large variety of different soft corals and sponges.

In Angelfish South we enter after a short walk across the beach, and descend in another break in the reef table. After a swim through the shallow coral garden, where we can find Moray Eels and Nudibranches, we come to the steep drop off that descends to over 60m. As we turn to return, we come to a canyon which we follow to the shallower coral garden, and to the exit point.

Rock Sea Area

The Valley is located next to a small camp.

There are hundreds of reef fish moving along the reef and many hiding places for octopus and shrimp. The floor of the Valley drops below 50 meters, so we swim along one or other reef walls, before ascending to the top of the wall to return through the coral garden and to the exit point. As there are a number of ways to move through the Valley, we can make two or three dives on this site.

You start the dive after a short walk over sand and small rocks, in a shallow area of sea grass, dotted with small pinnacles and coral blocks. We slowly swim into the labyrinth, where the reef walls extend up to the surface of the water, until we reach the entrance to the coral garden. In the Coral garden, we can find large Frog Fish, schools of Barracuda, Snapper and large clouds of reef fish. The coral garden becomes a drop off down to depths greater than 50 meters, offering the chance to see larger pelagic hunters in the deep waters. Once we are finished searching the coral garden, we make our way back through the Labyrinth to the exit point.

The dive sites are a shallow reef table with a maximum depth of 7m, with a sandy slope leading slowly deeper and out to an area of Sea Grass. In this sandy area, we can find the very rare Mimic Octopus, as well as the more common Reef Octopus and Cuttlefish. To the north is the shallower of the dives, with a maximum depth of 8m, whilst the southern dive has a maximum of 14m. There is the chance to spot Giant Frog Fish here, in amongst the huge variety different reef fishes and Moray Eels.

Even the famous Spanish Dancer is often seen here and we quite regularly dive alongside big Turtles which travel between the MFO and Swisscare. As the dives are shallow, the light is excellent for photography allowing photographers extra time for their pictures.

In the years since, this buoy has become a centre for a huge variety of different marine life. We slowly circle the chains on the buoy, where there is an abundance of soft corals and Shrimps, ascending into the clouds of Glass Fish, Damsels and Fusiliers circling the buoy itself.

Untouched underwater, they have become home to a large number of different fish species, and covered in a huge variety of hard and soft corals.

The dive begins by swimming over the Sea Grass, where large Green Turtles can often be seen, before exploring the reef itself. The reef begins on 5m and ends on 26m, with a few smaller pinnacles located deeper. The whole reef is a cleaning station, so most fish species congregate here, including Lion Fish in large numbers, Stone Fish and Scorpion Fish. If you take time to explore the reef, you will find cleaner shrimps tucked down inside every hole, as well as numerous Moray Eels and Octopus. Baby Freckled Frogfish can be found here, well hidden in holes, if you look carefully enough.

Myserique

One of our newest additions.
These two dive sites are some of the newest additions to the Nuweiba dive site map. Therefore, there are no maps yet.

Ray’s Place begins by snorkeling over a rocky entry and descending onto a sandy slope that begins at 2 meters. The whole slope from 5 meters down is covered in Sea Grass, with all coral pinnacles and large Table Corals growing up out of the grass. In this area, you can find different Nudibranches and Robust Ghost Pipefish nestling amongst the Sea grass. This area has many Blue Spotted Rays and you can often find them sitting proudly out on the grass rather than tucked under a ledge. The whole site has a magical feel owed to the setting of the coral within Sea Grass rather than in the sand.


Farrah Shore
 is entered by snorkeling over the rocks and descending onto the shallow coral garden. This area has a large collection of huge Table Corals, and drops swiftly down into craters and valley’s of over 40 meters in depth.
