Gota Abu Ramada, also named the Aquarium, is a dive site full of marine life and great for photographers. At only an hour boat ride from Hurghada it is also one of the best accessible. Actually, it is amazing how this reef survives and continuous to live with these amount of divers visiting it. You will see different types of bannerfish, anthias, parrotfish, angelfish and butterflyfish. But also eagle rays, bigeyes, snappers, sweetlips and trevallies are quite common inhabitants. Don't forget the triggerfish who try to bite you especially in September when they are nesting.
To the west side of the reef are two large coral towers which are beautiful decorated with soft corals and gorgonian fans. To the east are some smaller pinnacles which are swarmed by small fish. You will feel like swimming inside an aquarium and it is definitely one of the better sites so close to Hurghada.

Ok Ok i have to agree that this is without a good dive for photographers and is a fantastic dive for new divers and people doing a "try dive" however i was taken here with 14 dives under my belt and have see all the coral and small fish, saw a huge Napoleon fish and some lion fish, my advice is if you do the west side you dont need to do the east as you will see more of the same and visa versa, ask you dive guide to move location

A very nice dive again. Brigitte and I dove hand in hand which saved her a lot of time. We had plenty of time to look around. We saw a huge moray eel, 2 stone-fish pointed out by Brigitte and a blue spotted stingray digging itself into the sand. I think it was the first stonefish I have ever seen.
