The Fury Shoals make up several reefs along the Southwest Red Sea coast, offering amazing scuba diving opportunities with some of the most pristine reefs in Egypt. The hard and soft coral are unspoiled and are a highlight of many dive sites such as the Fury Shoal Garden.

Fury Shoals have one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the entire Red Sea. One of its main attractions is the Chinese tugboat, which sank in the 1940s.

The marine life is also really great with all the usual reef fishes of the Red Sea and various species of reef Sharks (Whitetip, Grey) and even sometimes the curious Oceanic Whitetip Shark. Pelagic fishes such Barracudas, Giant Trevallies, Dogtooth Tunas are also common in the area.

Various kinds of dive sites are available depending on what you fancy (or what gets your heart rate going!): fringing reefs, lagoons, drop-offs or wrecks are some of the options so you certainly won’t get bored here diving amongst these magnificent coral formations. A very famous dive site in The Fury Shoals is called the Dolphin Reef (Sha’ab Sataya). A pod of Dolphins is living there and can be often spotted while scuba diving or Snorkelling.

Aside from the wrecks, Fury Shoals have amazing and colorful coral reefs teeming with marine life. Fury Shoals is definitely the divesite to be if you want to explore both artificial and natural reefs.

The Fury Shoals is a great diving spot if you want to avoid the crowded dive sites of the Northern Red Sea and if you look for pristine reefs with superb coral.

The Fury Shoals are located in front of Wadi Lahami South of Marsa Alam and North of Ras Banas. It is possible to dive Fury Shoals from Marsa Alam on a day trip or from Hamata. Several liveaboards also explore these wonderful reefs.

This location is a Reef.

You can dive Fury Shoals all year long. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Fury Shoals on the right for the exact location.

  1. Great diving, warm blue water, less dived sites. Why oh why were the divers in HOODS in the vid? One even had (illegal) gloves!!!
    Wusses!

    • Before you go slinging insults at people. People with less body fat, get chilled easier. I wore a 3mm and also a hood, and the “illegal” gloves, because they help to keep me warm. We also do not know the time of year that the video was taken, water temps vary widely throughout the year.

  2. If there is one piece of thermal protection that should never be left behing, it is the hood. You can better put a swimsuit and a hood rather than a shorty and no hood. It is simply how the body works, you should alway have the back of your neck well insulated.

    Now if you are in there for peeing contests, catwalks or name-calling, you can do that without any scuba gear at all.
