Journey to Marsa Alam to see the very furthest reaches of the Red Sea and the up and coming diving holiday in Egypt. Here the creature comforts of a modern hotel mingles seamlessly with the same world class diving we have come to expect from this all time diving destination. Away from the hustle and bustle, you are free to explore this still largely undiscovered region. In the clear warm waters, you can come face to face with some of Marsa Alam's more unique residents that will make other divers green with envy. Turtles, rays and sharks are just some of the highlights but there is even a local population of dugongs to see if you are really lucky. This is all along side beautiful reef dives packed with clouds of anthias, sargent majors and trigger fish. Look closer to find excellent macro life or camouflage fish.
Coraya Divers are perfectly located on the southern side of a sheltered bay. They are one of the largest centres in the area and have a superb set up that gives total dive freedom with an ever careful eye on safety. A warm welcome is always guaranteed. If you are new to diving, you will love having the classroom and house reef all in one location. There is a platform at 4m on the house reef for practicing those all important skills under the watchful eye of your PADI instructor. Children aged 8 or above can join the fun too with the Bubblemaker and Kids programme. And if you are already certified, why not take your diving to the next level with the range of specialty and further education courses.
- Flexible diving schedule
- Shore diving on house reef
- Rib or boat diving
- Family friendly
- PADI IDC centre
A normal week at Coraya mixes up house reef diving and boat diving with a myriad of options to suit you. If you have over 25 dives, you can grab a tank and dive unguided in the house reef which is open between 09:00 and 16:30. The jetty entrance is divided so both snorkelers and divers can enter and exit easily at the ideal point of the bay. Guided dives are also on offer for those that prefer (local surcharge). Or why not jump in the speedboat to drift into the house reef from the outside reef. There are a further 10+ dive sites that can be access from shore dotted along the coastline. And the fleet of boats departs on full day or half day trips to yet more sites further away. Boredom is never an problem here!

Hi Caroline. The Coraya Beach was a very good choice , couldnt fault it. Great food, staff, facilities etc. Dived everyday mainly on the house reef as too much hassle with trips further afield after the week on the boat. Got some great photos which is what it was all about!! Thanks for all your help with the arrangements. Martyn
Hi caroline and Alison, Many thanks - great holiday and beautiful resort. It's taken 25 years for karen and I to see Mantas, eagle rays, dolphins and turtles and Sammy saw all of this within 8 dives! She's hooked.Best wishes. Paul
