Shoal Reef Sharks
Carless Reef is the most famous coral shoal in the coastal area of Hurghada. This dive site is situated one hour of Hurghada, it is a mid sea reef plateau pushing up from the Abyss.
The reef itself centres on two peaks or pinnacles which brush the surface in an otherwise open sea. The valley between these pinnacles is about 16m deep, and offers a wide range of dive possibilities for those not interested in deep diving. A few metres east of the saddle, a steep wall drops well beyond 40m, with a contoured profile offering many caves and cavelets for the more experienced diver.
There is the chance to see all types of marine life on the pinnacles or the smaller pinnacles on the plateau and the possibility of spotting a reef shark on quiet days. Also large gorgonians, pushing black corals, coral fish and moray eels (large population of semi-tame moray eels),etc.
This is the furthest dive site to the south of El Gouna, in the open sea and unprotected in bad weather.
