Ras Cathy

Ras Cathy Dive Site from Sharm el Sheikh

Ras Cathy is a good combination dive. There is a shallow area which is ideal for sorting out any buoyancy practice and getting the weights right, also useful for doing the safety stops. In the shallows are coral heads coming to within a couple of meters of the surface which are full of life as well as sandy patches with eel grass.

A little bit further out the reef drops down on a 45º slope to the depths allowing the divers to follow the reef towards the plateau on the corner. The currents on the corner are not usually strong but any diver going to the corner needs to watch the air supply as it can be quite a swim back at 18m before the reef starts to shallow out.
