Hurghada Info

                                                            Fanadir South

is one of the longest reefs of Hurghada. It is situated north of Hilton Plaza Hotel and stretches in almost a straight line towards the north. Fanadir itself is divided into two dive sites: Fanadir South and North. The southern part consists of 10 m high reef’s wall, sandy plateau which is about 30 m wide by the mooring which ends up with another steep wall reaching the depths of 40 m and over.

Dive route:

Navigation of this dive site is very simple: we begin our dive having the reef on the left hand side and heading, against the current, in the northern direction. Coming back with the current holding the reef on our right hand side. Initially we dive over a naked sandy plateau, but you could not be mistaking more! When observing carefully one can possibly see ay inhabitants here among which we can find the rarest samples of Red Sea flora.

The edge of the plateau falls down to about 18 m and later even exceeds 30 m. The slop itself is not looking too interesting. On the way back towards the boat we dive close to the reef, which offers many soft and hard corals, a lot of different kinds of sponges and it is also a home to variety of fishes.

 

Flora & fauna:

You can often run into walking together Moth Fish, Stone Fish – especially during the mating period they give quite a show on the sandy bottom marching together! We can also see, in the sand on the edge f the plateau big Sand Rays or Feather tail Rays laying under a thin layer of the sand waiting for their victims. Gobies together with Partner Shrimp fill the entire bottom digging holes. Octopuses are often visiting this reef as well. One of the most interesting and incredible kinds of fish is the Red Se Walkman, Stargazer of Frog Fish. Manta Ray is also from time to tie passing by to check what is happening in the neighbourhood. We can spend a safety stop directly by the reef – at the level of 5 m it is full of life, a special show is given by Basslets and a lot of Blue Fusiliers swimming the blue. There is a place in the wall covered densely with Glass Fish hunted by many Lion Fish.

Depths: from 10 m to 40 m
