Reef Check

Reef Check is the world’s largest international coral reef monitoring organization involving recreational divers and marine scientists.

The Reef Check protocol is one standardized method so that survey results can be compared wherever they are carried out. It focuses on the abundance of particular coral reef organisms that best reflect the condition of the eco-system as a whole. These “indicator species” are easy to recognize by amateur divers and this allows for anyone to participate in scientific research.

Until now we have carried out 30 surveys on 10 different reefs (each with 2 different depth levels). All these surveys have been integrated by the Reef Check Head Quarters in their international data base: Marsa Shagra North & South, Marsa Nakari North & South, Wadi Lahami House Reef "sheltered" & "exposed", Sharm Abu Dabab, Elphinstone, Marsa Gabel El Rosas and Marsa Egla.

If you are already a certified Eco Diver, we welcome you to participate on our Reef Check surveys.

Red Sea Diving Safari has carried out more than 30 surveys at 10 dive sites in the Marsa Alam area. We are happy to announce our official Reef Check survey dates for 2019 as follows:

04/Aug/2019 (spot to be announced)

(In 2020 we will not be conducting a Reef Check Eco Diver Course, however certified Eco Divers are welcome to join our survey team. Dates will be announced soon.)

All certified Reef Check Eco Divers are invited to join us in surveying these reefs. If you are not already a certified Reef Check Eco Diver, you may be interested to join our Reef Check Eco Diver Course which will take place in Marsa Nakari before the surveys.

As official sponsors of Reef Check, Red Sea Diving Safari will be offering all survey dives free of charge to participants (exc. equipment).
