RAS ABU GALUM
A MINI RAS MOHAMED – BREATHTAKING DIVES AND TRIP
Ras abu Galum National Park is about 15km north of Dahab and is reached by camel (daily or overnight) and boat (daily). The usual trip starts early morning with a drive to the Blue Hole then hoping on your camels for a 90 min ride north to the Bedouin huts. Your camel will also carry your tanks and scuba gear on the way. Upon arrival, you will be served Bedouin tea and you will be assigned a hut to keep your personal belongings.
Undisturbed from mass tourism, Ras abu Galum offers around 6 different dive sites perfect for all types of divers, beginners or pro. If you want to get the most out of the trip, stay overnight, plan for 4 or 5 dives (night dive), enjoy the simple and delicious Bedouin food and watch the falling stars at night, a great escape! The diving is fantastic, the coral pristine, with the possible sightings of Turtles, Mantas, Octopus, strange-shaped sponges and big pinnacles with a great variety of reef fish.
