Freediving Ras Mohamed is an experience not to miss! Ras Mohamed is a big stunning marine national park easily reached from shore and the freediving there can be amazing; the abundance of fish and marine life is like anywhere else in this part of the Red Sea.
Ras Mohamed is situated south west of Sharm el Sheikh at around 100 km from Dahab. We leave early in the morning and drive there in a minivan, reaching the National Park in just about 1 hour. We launch off the shore of Shark Observatory and freedive the shallow entry cave for a while. Then we move along the coast where we can explore the many shallow and deeper caves hidden in the reef table. Confident freedivers can dive deeper along the wall, while beginners can freedive shallower and still not miss any of the colorful marine life.
We have a lunch break on the beach under a tent, and have a little rest in the shade before the next freediving session. For the next dive we launch off the famous Yolanda Reef, where often is possible to freedive with big schools of fish like barracudas, trevallies and snappers. In this area is also easy to encounter turtles, rays, giant morays, napoleons and more. You will realize how much closer you can get to marine life while freediving compared to scuba diving:)
Price: 60€ including park entry fee, fruit and snacks and at least one FDD instructors as freediving guide. Minimum 4 people.
