The Basics

There’s a fee to enter Ras Mohammed National Park, whether you’re approaching by land or water. Given the magic that lies below the surface, many visitors choose to experience the park on a snorkeling cruise. While qualified divers will likely already have the park on their Red Sea itinerary, a few tours offer options for untrained divers as well. Land-based Ras Mohammed National Park tours typically focus on its deserted beaches, sandstone cliffs, and earthquake fractures.

Very well organized trip

From the pick, which was perfectly on time, to the crew on the boat and the stunning reef, everything was on point. Very professional and well managed trip, the staff goes above and beyond to please everyone. The lunch was surprisingly good and abundant, freshly cooked on the boat. I highly recommend to opt for the diving option even for first time divers, it will be a memorable experience!

This is a must do. We came down from Dahab to meet the ship at the dock. They were really hospitable and their grasp on multiple languages is amazing. Not sure why the title of this tour is in Danish but I wouldn’t be surprised if they spoke that too! They take you to 3 really cool sites to snorkel or dive. One thing to be aware of is that this is far from a quiet private excursion. You will be amongst at least a dozen other boats all headed to the same spot. But it doesn’t take away from the experience. I don’t recommend staying in Sharm. I think Dahab is way better, especially if you’re not part of a Russian group at Sharm. The operators dropped us back to a resort close to the airport and we took a cab from there.

How to Get There

About 12 miles (20 kilometers) southwest of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Ras Mohammed National Park occupies a pristine spit of land—and the waters around it. There’s no public transport so most visitors opt to join either a 4WD land tour or a boat cruise; driving is highly unusual.

When to Get There

Ras Mohammed National Park is suitable for diving and snorkeling year-round, with the waters at their warmest between July and September; February can be on the chilly side. Bird-watchers won’t want to miss the migrating storks that fly through, often in flocks as large as 10,000, between mid-August and mid-October.

Diving Ras Mohammed National Park

After the SSThistlegorm and the Blue Hole in Dahab, Ras Mohammed National Park is on most scuba divers’ Red Sea bucket list. While shark numbers in the park have been reduced, Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef offer colorful corals, rich marine life, and the chance to see pelagic fish—not to mention the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dive the wreck of a ship that was carrying toilet seats.
