Tiran Island, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt


I would highly recommend Tiran Island, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt to dive. It’s famous for Hammer head sharks but unfortunately I didn’t see any.
I was picked up from the hotel and taken to a port to get on a dive boat to get to Tiran Island.
I dived this island three times, all stride entry. Off the boat and down a shot line to arranged depth, always had a dive brief beforehand and debrief afterwards.
The visibility was fantastic, 30m plus. I met some great people on the dive and have to say with the training I have had from BSAC , I was the best in the group, not being big headed but I just thought this and was even asked by dive leader to be the second in charge and take over if something happened. My first dive buddy was a lady from Holland, then the rest I had to watch two other people.
Anyway on my dives I saw plenty of lovely corals, and marine life, puffer fish, crocodile fish, stone fish, this was hard to see, and with the sea current, hard to stay put to see, also blue spotted manta rays and my best a lovely turtle, this I managed to get right next too, your eyes were always catching something.
