One of the most famous diving place in Egypt is the Blue Hole, situated in Sinai's East, at the few kilometers from the Dahab’s North. The Blue Hole is a sort of cave that starts a meter below the sea's surface and that is around 130 meters deep. At the 6 meters deep a shallow is opening, which has a tunnel of 26 meters, called the arch, whose top has 52 meters. This hole, as well as its surroundings has numerous coral reefs and fish reefs. This place is the dwell for many beautiful and interesting marine creatures such as: soft corals, star corals and hard corals, surgeon fish, parrot fish, jack fish, regal angelfish, triggerfish, unicorn fish, barracudas, reef sharks. The Blue Hole is a good place for diving and snorkeling, attracting many tourists. But those who want to dive here must be really good divers or have an instructor with them, and not to exceed the maximum depths limits. Unfortunately, some divers died here, and that's why the Blue Hole is also known as “the most dangerous dive site in the world”. It seems that the problem is to find the tunnel; the divers who miss the tunnel keep on going in the depths, where are affected by the nitrogen level. The angle between the tunnel, the open water and the hole it is hard to be detected. The best thing to do is to avoid “the arch” if you are not used to that area or if you are not assisted by a professional instructor. You should also have mixed gases with you when you dive, as well as a perfect diving weighting system. On the Blue Hole's adjacent shore are snorkel shops and restaurants where you can enjoy your lunch or dinner.
