Ras Umm Sid

Done as a boat drift dive or from shore, this dive site offers lots of color and marine life as well as great topography. From the shore, follow the reef on your left for a deep wall dive, but watch for the current at the corner. Follow the reef to your right, you’ll have the bottom beneath you at around 32m.

Summer = resident manta and eagle rays! This site has potential for everything from hammerhead, thresher, and whale sharks, to tiny cleaner shrimp, turtles & blue spotted rays.
