Canyon, Dahab

The Canyon is located 1.5km from the Blue Hole. Another geographical marvel, it is a deep fissure in the reef that you reach after entering a shallow lagoon and swimming along a coral garden plateau.

Octopuses, Clownfish, Moray Eels, Boxfish and Macro. A giant moray eel lives in the canyon, but it often hides. A school of glassfishes in the upper area.
