The Basics

There’s a fee to enter Ras Mohammed National Park, whether you’re approaching by land or water. Given the magic that lies below the surface, many visitors choose to experience the park on a snorkeling cruise. While qualified divers will likely already have the park on their Red Sea itinerary, a few tours offer options for untrained divers as well. Land-based Ras Mohammed National Park tours typically focus on its deserted beaches, sandstone cliffs, and earthquake fractures.

Super amazing day out, not to be missed
Very well organised trip from picking up on time, the communication prior to the day regarding the pick up time and transport back to our hotel. The boat was immaculate and food was very fresh and amazing. We had three stops for snorkeling and diving and even though we didn't dive ourselves we watched how attentive they were with the novices. Well done to all the staff and organisers

How to Get There

About 12 miles (20 kilometers) southwest of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Ras Mohammed National Park occupies a pristine spit of land—and the waters around it. There’s no public transport so most visitors opt to join either a 4WD land tour or a boat cruise; driving is highly unusual.

When to Get There

Ras Mohammed National Park is suitable for diving and snorkeling year-round, with the waters at their warmest between July and September; February can be on the chilly side. Bird-watchers won’t want to miss the migrating storks that fly through, often in flocks as large as 10,000, between mid-August and mid-October.

Diving Ras Mohammed National Park

After the SSThistlegorm and the Blue Hole in Dahab, Ras Mohammed National Park is on most scuba divers’ Red Sea bucket list. While shark numbers in the park have been reduced, Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef offer colorful corals, rich marine life, and the chance to see pelagic fish—not to mention the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dive the wreck of a ship that was carrying toilet seats.
