Small Giftun

Funny Divers bring you to the best Dive Spots in the Red Sea

Dive Site

This dive site is located on south eastern side of Small Giftun Island in Giftun National Park. It is considered to be the most interesting place for the drift dive in Hurghada. Underwater, the wall of the Island drops to the great depths creating the dive site with the drop off and two plateaus. The strong current are present at all times bringing food for corals and fish which makes this place one of the richest in underwater life.

Dive Plan

We jump to the water nearby the Police Station and immediately we ascend to the depth of 30 metres where the first plateau can be found. All plateau is covered with soft and hard corals. Leaving the plateau and being at the drop off we can see the greatest Gorgonias in Hurghada area at the depths of 20 to 35 metres. After a while we will find the second plateau. Usually the amount of the air and the decompression limits make us come closer to the reef where the depths are shallower and start our slow ascend. The boats will wait for us here in 15 metres distance from the wall.

Flora & Fauna

As this place is famous for its strong currents, large pelagic fish can be spotted here. The plateaus are rich in soft corals which are food for Turtles. When we look into the blue, the great Barracudas and Travellies can bee seen. If we observe carefully the bottom next to the reef we will find lying there Crocodile Fish, Stone and Scorpion Fish, Stingrays and huge Moray Eels. At the mooring site we will fid large Brain Corals and schools of Goat Fish and Fusiliers around them. There is a big chance for meeting with huge and friendly Napoleon which some time ago was fed by boats crew and still comes here hoping for free meal.
