Scuba Diving Ricks Reef Dahab

Ricks Reef

Ricks Reef is located just a few hundred metres north of the Canyon. This is a popular and easy drift dive accessible to all levels of divers.

You can enter through a small crack in the reef table and then descend along a sandy slope filled with salad corals. At 18 metres, start swimming over numerous table corals and let the current drift you along the reef wall, located on your right.

Roughly 35-40 minutes in the dive, the “Fish Bowl” of the Canyon will come into view on your left. Finish the dive with a short swim above a colourful coral garden and exit the dive through a sandy lagoon, whose entry is marked by some beautiful erect coral pinnacles.

Location: 20 min. North from Dahab

Sights: turtles, rays, pufferfish, squids, nudibranchs…
