  • We booked an excursion at this reef that lies just in front of our resort. The sight of the wreckage from the beach has intrigued and so we contacted the rep and booked. You can get there on comfortable boats big and comfortable. Once in the water, you can enjoy a spectacular view. Fish of all types and sizes, if like us you happen on a flat sea, snorkeling too will prove to be an unforgettable experience. The wreck that we saw from a distance, seems set on coming and at first glance it almost makes impression, we on we approached that much but, there were many experienced divers but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

  • Jackson Reef is one of the four reefs in the Tiran Strait off the coast of Sharm el Sheikh-the three other reefs are Gordon Reef, Thomas Reef and Woodhouse Reef, all of which also are amazing Rev. Especially southwest corner of Jackson Reef may be recommended-here are always huge shoals of pennant fish (ban nerfish) and blue trigger fish (blue triggerfish)! The corals are also stunningly beautiful and healthy ... and for the most part you will meet 1-2 karetteskilpadder (hawksbill turtle), patrolling along the reef to munch on soft corals (soft corals). On the north side of Jackson Reef corals are not so beautiful-but here you can if you are lucky on blåvandsdyk meeting a school of Hammerheads (scalloped hammerhead sharks).
