    Location

    About 30 minutes outside Safaga is a long reef topped at the south end by a sandy island (Tobia Island).  At the north end is a long low rocky island and to the east of this is the dive site Tobia Hamra. The reef slopes gently to 35m as a series of hard coral ridges and sandy roads

    Sea Conditions

    It is protected in the lee of Ras Abu Soma so there are no waves and very little current but, like anywhere, it can get windy.

    Dive Plan

    Get yourself lost amongst the labyrinth of sandy roads and gullies and then try to find your way back. The rule here is the shallower the better. The best stuff is above 15m. The north end has better topography and makes the nicer diving.

    Marine Life

    This place is dived more for the scenery than for the fish life. However, you can find schools of Bream, Bigeye Emperors and several other species of Emperor. Stonefish and Scorpionfish lie on top of the coral blocks and in the deep water 30m + you may chance upon a Leopard Shark. Broomtail Wrasses are prolific and are presumably responsible for the Urchin fragments which scatter the sand.
