Place Category: Hurghada / El Gouna
Manta point, which is part of the Shaab El Erg reef, in the northern part of Hurghada, is located about 90 minutes far from Hurghada centre, at the north side of the main reef close to a lighthouse. The name of this dive site promises great things, but don’t count on them..
It can be rough getting there, but on arrival, you couldn’t find a better anchorage.
Manta Point is suitable for divers of every level. If you want to make a drift dive here, you need to be an experienced diver.
Even though the chance to see a Manta here is minimal, Manta point is a very good place for a drift dive. On the reef you’ll find many Soft Corals, and on the plateau stand some very nice coral formations which are covered with Glassfish. With a bit of luck, you might see a Reef Shark or a Turtle here.
Keep an eye on the blue, because sometimes big animals, such as Tuna and Barracuda, pass by.
