From EUR 45

Abu Dabbab is one of the most famous dive sites in the Red Sea and of all of Egypt. It is one of the few places in the world where you can dive with the very rare and endangered Dugong aka the Sea Cow. In fact, there are two resident Dugongs in the Abu Dabbab bay named Dennis and Dougal.
This dive site also features friendly giant Green Sea Turtles that you can swim with up close and personal. In the shallow water, it is not rare to spot the bizarre looking but completely harmless Guitar Shark.
In addition to the big stuff, there are also superb macro subjects such as the Ornate Ghost Pipefish, the rare thorny seahorse and the delicate Hairy Pygmy Pipehorse!
All this Exceptional and Rare marine life makes Abu Dabbab a very special spot and a must dive for anyone visiting Marsaalam
