Umm Gamar

The big brother to Shabrur Umm Gamar, this site is about 1h20min to the southeast of El Gouna. This site is great for all levels of divers, beginners to experienced, recreational and technical. Drift dives occur very often here. There are nice plateaus and pinnacles on the east and west side and there is a small nice cave on the east side as well.

You will see stone fish, scorpionfish, trigger fish, Lion fish, and glass fish on the plateaus. Plus the possibility of morays, rays, and dolphins if you are lucky.
