The island of Tiran is located at the southern end of the Gulf of Aqaba, which is a 2000 meter deep cut in the bottom of the ocean. Here the Gulf narrows and becomes shallower. With the change of tides, huge quantities of water flow through this bottleneck and cause very strong currents. In the center of the Strait of Tiran, a ridge pushes up, running from north to south. On its highest elevation four coral reefs (Gordon, Woodhouse, Thomas and Jackson, which are named after British cartographers) have formed.
The currents around these reefs are the cause for the extraordinary diversity of corals and big fish swarms. Among others, you can see barracudas, snappers and sharks.
This excursion is a wonderful day on the boat, which gives you the chance to do great snorkeling. There will be 3 stops, in the best three areas for those who love to enjoy the coral reefs and the aquamarine life. Lunch & soft drinks are provided whilst onboard.
Best Family vacation to the land of history and the beauty of Egypt.
