Marsa Alam is growing in reputation as one of Egypt's must see diving destinations and feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of home. The diving is endlessly varied and suits divers from complete novice right through to technical guru. A rare dugong spends his days munching sea grass alongside massive turtles and guitar sharks - a phenomenal sighting if your luck is in. Ras Shona combines a seagrass bed, ideal for small critters, with a gorgeous hard coral reef and is real favourite for batfish, crocodile fish and lionfish. Elphinstone will satisfy your thirst for prime wall diving and a fast drift. Oceanic white tips, hammerheads, manta and greys are all seen here seasonally and whenever you visit, the enormous gorgonians and clouds of anthias will impress... these are just a handful of the dive sites you could visit.
The on site dive centre is one of the original dive resorts in Marsa Alam and Extra Divers have a raft of experience diving the many reefs in the area. The multi lingual team of dive professionals teach both PADI and SSI courses with the comfort of all pool training is done on site, right next to your classroom. Then you are only moments away from the water. No need for transfers here - the diving really is on your door step.
