Shark & Yolanda Reef
It is the richest coral garden in Ras Mohammed, it has a small wall coming from the surface that forms a plateau for depth from 12 to 20 m.
Shark Reef will never disappoint you. In the winter months, you’re sure to find record visibility (50 m. +) Many small pinnacles with colorful soft corals and abundant marine life can be found.
The ship Yolanda, from which the reef takes its name, crashed on the reef in the 1980s and lay on its side until a storm pushed it over the edge and down to 180m. all that’s left to see is part of its cargo: bathroom fixtures, and plumbing products., all now encrusted with corals and home to Blue Spotted Stingrays, Scorpion and Stone Fish, Giant Morays and the resident Napoleon Wrasse.
Between the end of June and the beginning of September clouds of jackfish, snappers, barracudas, batfish, and unicorns gather here. In the summer months, you might be able to spot blacktip sharks inside the schools.
