Diving Roots Red Sea Part Three – Night Diving (Watch Video)

Published

on

No dive trip to Roots Red Sea is complete with at least a couple of night dives on the house reef. We’d even go as far as saying that Roots is the BEST place we have ever experienced a night dive! They never fail to impress, from the many stargazers hiding beneath the sand to the most unique and cool Flash Eye Fish/Flashlight Fish (Anomalopidae) that require you to head out to the wall on the south reef, sit on the sandy bottom and turn all your lights out. Yes that’s right, you are in total darkness. A few moments later, you spot several lights flashing against the wall, moving along in the water column. One of the most crazy things to see, especially the first time you experience it!

The sandy floor is littered with spanish dancers, sleeping turtles, hunting crabs and even a few sleeping parrot fish – I mean what’s not to like!?

And of course, the best thing about the Tuesday night dive is the beach fire with BBQ – laying round the fire, gazing at the universe, has that magical feel that instantly transports you away to another dimension…
