Dive 10
OF 11

Famous for SCUBA Diving & Free Diving

Experimented with Canon Powershot S95 and underwater housing. Saw Devil Scorpion Fish and Crocodile Fish. People are there learning to Free Dive. Blue Hole = 130metres deep, but there are exit tunnels at 28m and 55m. They recently recorded a Free Diver diving to 55m and swimming through the 55m exit tunnel. There are many plaques up on the rocky walls by the roads with dedications to the divers who have lost their lives in diving accidents. One was a close friend of my SCUBA instructor Sameh Morsi.
