Thanks for the info Nikki. I guess Bareika dosn't have a diving camp established, just a place to park up, pitch a tent and go diving. That being the case I guess I'll have to hire a car and find a dive centre to rent me cylinders. Perhaps Nick at the Oonas Dive Club will help...


Yes Tim if you are able to rent a car and get some tanks you could literally dive Ras Mohamed
from shore everyday. Campsite has 6 different sites - untouched, then you also have Quays
(very underrated), Shark Observatory, Eel garden (only calm conditions), Jackfish Alley (only
calm conditions) and Anemone city.
However if you get a car you can also visit Nabq - subject to calm conditions you will have
access to about 8 different sites including a wreck - the maria schroeder.

Cheers

Thanks for the positive comments.

Finding good dives in Sharm is getting more diffucult.
However if you search a bit, you are able to dive some pristine dive sites.

The campsite dive sites in Ras Mohamed is only accessable by shore and
no boats ever go there. Also not many know about them. Driving from Sharm
you are looking at least 30 minutes travel time to reach them. It is possible to
arrange overnight camping which is very nice.

If you are in search of something realy special head out to Nabq Park.
Located at the most northern end of Sharm, the Nabq park starts...

Here you will find pristine corals, the most northerly mangroves in the world,
reefs mixed with seagrass fields. Very special and no other divers.
I have done many dives here and have almost never seen other divers.

Have some examples below:
