Sharm El Sheikh, commonly abbreviated to Sharm, is one of the most charming cities in Egypt, located between the Gulf of Aqaba, the Gulf of Suez, and "the open body" of the Red Sea.
At the tip of the Sinai Peninsula, those three different waters meet, resulting in a rich environment that feeds currents suitable for the optimal growth of corals and marine life.
Often larger marine life can be seen, large fish, sharks, mantas, whale sharks, turtles, and even dolphins can be spotted playing in the bow waves of the boats.
Due to the prominent geographical location of the coastal city of Sharm El Sheikh, the beauty of the Sinai Mountains adorns the setting for a perfect background and extraordinary marine life, making it one of the best diving environments in the world.
