90 minutes cruising from Hurghada; north of Big Giftun.
Located in open sea, so exposed to weather. Experience needed for the deep wall dive.
Depth 0-20 meters. A plateau fans out to a deep wall. Umm Gamaar is fringed by coral. Dramatic drop-off running both east and west. Plethora of soft corals. Pinnacles like drip candles. Sandy bottom, littered with coral blocks.
