Eel Garden

In Dahab directly, approx. 7min journey. Entrance over a wide reef roof, therefore only diveable with low/no wind and high water. Wide sandy field with innumerable tube eels. Flat way back (7-3m) at a wonderful, colourful reef. Partial counter current on the way back.

Eels upon eels! Curious pyramid boxfish and shearing knife fish react to swirling sand and come very close. Sometimes small needle seahorses in the shallow area.
