Gordon Reef

Located in Egypt, Gordon Reef is renowned for the wreck of the “Lovilla”, which became grounded on the reef's northern end in 1981. Divers have the option to experience this dive either as a drift or mooring dive, with mooring available on the southern side of the reef.

This expansive reef offers an incredible opportunity for observing marine life, including bannerfish, parrotfish, cornetfish, and blue-spotted stingrays, all gracefully gliding through the vibrant hard coral.

Beginning with a sandy plateau, divers will navigate towards the drop-off, found at a depth of 20 meters. As they descend into the stunning turquoise blue waters, fortunate divers may even catch a glimpse of hammerhead or eagle rays, which are known to frequent these deep blue waters. The wall is adorned with magnificent gorgonians, creating a mesmerizing backdrop for the abundance of reef fish. On the return path towards the reef, divers will encounter numerous scattered metal drums filled with tar on the sandy plateau. They can opt to either return along the same route to conclude the dive or, in favorable weather conditions, enjoy a drift around the northern side of the reef.

With excellent visibility of up to 25 meters and a maximum depth of 21 meters, Gordon Reef is suitable for both beginner and advanced divers. Plan your underwater adventure at this captivating dive site conveniently located on Al Sheikh Zaid Street, Al Nabq, Shark's Bay, Sharm el-Sheikh, South Sinai, Egypt.
