Dive 13 – Panorama Reef


Panorama Reef is a large reef close to Safaga and although we started the dive as the only boat moored to the reef, by the time we finished there were five day boats moored up.

We were moored to the left hand red dot and went by rib halfway around the backside in the direction of the automatic light beacon.

There was a reasonably fast current which took us back to our boat.

Amongst the fish and coral we saw were:

The quality of the fish and the dive was excellent – we were lucky that we got there early and were in the water before most of the day boats arrived.
