The city of Jeddah is known as “the Bride of the Red Sea”, but many visitors leave the city never having got to know “the bridegroom” with its dazzlingly beautiful coral reefs and myriad colors and sizes of fish. Learning to scuba dive is an easy way to rectify this. Contrary to popular belief it is a sport almost everyone can take up, from young to old; it’s extremely safe; it needn’t cost the earth; and there’s no need to be a macho man to do it!
From Ubhur Creek, north of Jeddah, dive boats leaves daily to visit the offshore reefs of the Eliza Shoals. This two Hundreds square mile shoal has many popular dive sites. Many of the reefs reach the surface, so the water are calm on the lee side, making them popular with snorkeling and swimming as well as diving.
Three-meter high black coral trees are found at Black Coral Canyons, a series of underwater canyons, which drop eastward into the channel between the Arabian coast and the shoals at depths of 25 to 30 meters. Blossoming from these ridges are the rare and much revered black coral trees, which are much too large to be referred to as just bushes.
Few divers experience a site with more snap, crackle and pop! The sounds of the sea really come alive here.
