SEA LIFE ON SANDY BOTTOM
Eel Garden is the home to Dahab’s largest colony of garden Eels. They live in permanent tubular burrows on the sandy bottom, standing upright, heads bent into the current and picking at passing food. Eel Garden lies about 500m north of the centre of Dahab and can be reached by pickup within a few minutes. Eel Garden is an especially popular and exciting dive site with different habitats (sandy slopes, shallow lagoons and reef walls). You enter the water at a channel in the reef shelf, and can usually expect to see Napoleons , flounders, whitespotted puffers and morays as well as more rarely Dolphins and eagle Rays.
