Egypt

The Egyptian Red Sea is home to year round sunshine and a glittering blue sea that is the perfect backdrop to any Red Sea scuba diving holiday. Diver, non diver, family or friends - the Egyptian resorts have plenty to offer and keep you coming back year after year. The main dive resorts of Sharm el Sheikh, Dahab, Hurghada and Marsa Alam are each distinct from one another and Scuba Travel knows just which one is right for any traveler, no matter what your needs. Sharm and Hurghada are well established northern Red Sea resorts with bright lights, tasty restaurants and great bars. If your taste is a quieter pace of life Dahab is a sleepy Bedouin town where the focus is on relaxation and enjoying the awesome mountain scenery. Marsa Alam is the newcomer to the group, yet its hotels boast the quiet isolation of the southern Egyptian Red Sea without sacrificing any creature comforts.

Scuba Travel only works with the safest and most reputable dive centres at each and every Red Sea resort. And what diving there is! Dahab offers superb shores dives at the likes of the Blue Hole or Canyon. Ras Mohammed and Tiran are the main attractions from Sharm, with lush soft corals and charging currents. Local dive sites are sheltered so just right for novice divers. Then there are the wrecks. The area between Sharm and Hurghada is littered with 19th and 20th century wrecks. The Thistlegorm, Abu Nuhas or Rosalie Moller... these wrecks are diving folklore and a must see on any trip. Down south Marsa Alam is home to some of Egypt's rarest creatures. Diving with a dugong is an unforgettable experience. Be whisked down Elphinstone wall or potter in the gardens that edge the beaches - the choice is yours.

Egypt is splendid all year round although as it is sub tropical, you will experience seasons. The water is at its warmest (approx 30) July-October but rarely drops below 22. The months April - October are always popular, especially during the school holidays so it pays to book early for these times of year. Consider going outside of the high season if you like the reefs to be a bit quieter.

Diving Highlights

The Red Sea boasts incrtedible bio diversity for a sea as young as it is. The reef fish are abundant all year round, as are the pelagics, although regular visitors might notice some changing faces underwater throughout the year.

  • Napoleons
  • Turtles
  • Blue spotted sting rays
  • Lion fish
  • Oceanic white tips (south)
  • Hammerheads (north & south)
  • Manta
  • 19th & 20th Century wrecks

Top dive sites to visit: Shark & Yolanda, Jackson, Thistlegorm, Jackfish alley, Abu Nuhas, Poseidon, Giftun, Elphinstone, Marsa Abu Dabab, Dolphin House, local dive sites (snorkelers)
