229 Logged Dives

Eel Garden

In Dahab directly, approx. 7min approach. Entrance over wide reef roof, therefore only with little/no wind and high tide diveable. Wide sand field with countless sand eels. Shallow return (7-3m) on a beautiful, brightly coloured reef. Partial counter current on the way back.

Eels upon eels! Curious pyramid case fish and snipe knife fish react to kicked up sand and come very close. Sometimes small pinnipeds in the shallows.
