Would you like a relaxed and yet spectacular dive? At "Ras Abu Soma" we enjoy the possibility of big fish sightings due to the drop-off, but can enjoy floating in the water without any problems. A great spot for students who want to see something and more experienced divers who want to relax.
"Ras", meaning the "head" of Abu Soma, is a drop off wall that descends into the depths at this reef at the northern end of Safaga Bay. At a depth of about 25 meters we find a plateau with many different corals, mainly table and hard corals.
In the blue water the chances of seeing barracudas, mackerels, snappers, tunas and bat- and surgeon fish are good. From time to time at "Ras Abu Soma" even grey reef sharks or whitetip reef sharks are sighted as well as leopard or hammerhead sharks, stingrays, guitarfish or eagle rays and in spring also manta rays.
On the plateau, however, we always find interesting reef inhabitants, such as moray eels, octopuses or cuttlefish on the reef slope and clownfish in their anemones. Further south is "Ras Abu Soma Garden", a great coral garden that turtles and milkfish also love.
- Coral garden: It is located in the south and is known for surprising encounters. Be sure to stop by!
- Table corals: They stand mighty and magnificent on the plateau of "Ras Abu Soma" and are virtually the landmarks of this dive site.
