Widely known as Daedelous; Abu Kizan is one of the Red Sea's pearls and maybe the ultimate pearl at that.
Abu Kizan is basically a reef (A HUGE REEF) smack daddy in the middle of nowhere! The immense size of the reef has made it possible for large family of Hammer Head sharks to live there permanently and can be seen on almost every dive when one is seeking them out.
The Hammer Heads are but one of Abu Kizan's many wonders. The best way to see it is to spend a few days at this amazing and giving dive site.
"What can I say? In one dive we saw 20 Hammer Heads, 2 White Tipped Oceanic Sharks, a Thresher Shark, a Manta and a pod of Dolphin. Diving anywhere else this week is simply madness" ~ Ahmed Adly 2012
Zabargad Island is home to 2 main dive sites which are the "Heaven Gardens" and the mysterious "Soviet Spy Ship".
The Heaven Gardens is a delight of bright and multi colored Soft Corals, fish of all shapes and sizes and a shallow network of coral caves that one can spend hours in.
Dive here again and again and then bask in the colorful memories!
"Heaven Gardens is a dive site worth living in" ~ Ahmed Adly 2010
Rocky Island is so called because it is a…. rocky island :)
This dive site is visited for it's seasonal shark population and also for the famous ship wreck of the Maidan at a deep depth of 80 - 120 meters.
Otherwise, a couple of dives to explore the caverns and are always satisfying.
The Saint Johns Plateau is an area of the Red Sea well known for it's under water reefs (Habilis) and amazing marine life. Home to about 10 dive sites, it is an excellent place to visit.

Fury Shoals AKA Sataya is described by artists as "The Kingdom of Hard Corals" This amazing area of the Red Sea is again, in it's singularity, one of the most amazing places on earth. Visit the reefs and gaze upon the colossal Brain Coral like colorful sleeping giants and the amazing coral caves which have formed in the shallows over hundreds of millions of years.
