Woodhouse Reef

Fun drift dive from the boat, Woodhouse is the longest of the 4 main reefs in the Straits of Tiran. Currents can be strong. There is a split in the middle of the reef and care needs to be taken towards the end of the reef where a washing machine effect can sometimes be present. The reef is fabulously colorful!

Expect to see the normal Red Sea fish, along with eagle rays, turtles, and huge tuna. On occasions during the summer months, hammerhead and reef sharks are present.
