Ras Burg

Ras Burg is a breathtaking wall drift dive located in Egypt. This dive site gets its name from a magnificent rock formation that serves as the entry point. The highlight of Ras Burg is a massive underwater cavern situated to the left of the Burg.

The pinnacles of Ras Burg are covered with captivating glassfish. Divers can also spot trevally, snappers, surgeonfish, barracudas, turtles, rays, and a variety of reef fish.

This site is often chosen for diving during rough weather conditions as it provides shelter from swells originating from the South. It is recommended to embark on a full drift dive in the morning when the sun illuminates the reef wall. Ras Burg offers an array of stunning glassfish pinnacles to explore. At the start of the dive, there is a vast cavern extending from the fringing reef plate, creating mesmerizing shafts of light. This cavern attracts Great Barracuda and groupers seeking cleaning opportunities. Additionally, divers can expect to encounter octopuses, Nudibranch, and red sea anemones along the reef wall.

Ras Burg is also known for its exciting pelagic sightings during the summer months. Divers may have the chance to spot eagle rays, turtles, trevally, tuna, manta rays, and even whale sharks. Depending on the current direction, the dive can be conducted with the reef on either the left or right shoulder. It is crucial to maintain excellent buoyancy control during this dramatic wall dive.

With a maximum depth of 20 meters and visibility reaching 24 meters, Ras Burg is suitable for advanced divers. Its close proximity to Jackfish Alley in South Sinai, Egypt makes it a convenient dive location.
