This is an excellent dive site for night dive. Take care of the current at the entry point: It can be very strong, and waves does not help! N from Dahab, just before the Canyon dive site. Abu Helal is also known as Abu Hilal, Abu Helal Drift.

Starts from the shore with dropoff on 5 meters. All site looks like a valley between upland with a light slope going down. At a start (20 meters max) - 2 overhangs from both sides of the walley. Next is cave at a right side - entrance at depth about 30 meters. Then if going down with slope - valley starts widen (50 m). Nice landscape and eel garden from 50 to 70 meters. Don't know much about the cave configuration. South Dahab

A true vertical wall, full of overhangs and fissures, with lots of swimthroughs and cavelets. Towards the Blue Hole, in the south, the reef profile softens to a steep slope. The dive begins in a small slot in the reef table, around 100m (328ft) north of the Blue Hole lagoon; after reaching your maximum depth on the sheer wall section just south of the entry, ascend slowly and follow the reef south to the lip of the Blue Hole lagoon, in about 6m (20ft) at the top of the reef. This is your exit point.
