Marsa Abu Dabbab is a sheltered bay North of Marsa Alam well known for its green turtles and the elusive dugong. I took a group of students from my school snorkelling there on our last day during a school trip. The dugong was nowhere to be seen, but we swam with a sailfish and 6 green turtles. I went free diving to about 10 metres to take this picture. Green turtles eat sea grass, hence their presence in the bay.
