Eel Garden, Ras Mohammed

Situated between Shark Observatory and Jack Fish Alley, right in front of a small beach. Mainly a gentle sandy slope, starting from the fringing reef at a depth of 12 m till the main drop off at 35 m. The perfect home for an impressive colony of garden eels endemic to the Red Sea. The eels emerge from the sand for about two-thirds of their length, swaying in the curent in search for plankton. As they are very timid, always aproach carefully, otherwise they will slip quickly back into their lairs, which they never abandon, at first sign of danger. In the blue you can observe schools of trevally, fusiliers and even eagle rays.
