Sharm el Sheikh is deservedly diving legend and no log book is complete without a diving holiday to Sharm. And within this Camel Dive is one of Sharm's leading dive centres, with a dedicated following. Come find out for yourself why exploring all Sharm has to offer is made all the more enjoyable with Camel dive. This sophisticated centre has an incredible range of dive sites to suit all experience levels and underwater interests. Most sites are no more than an hour's sail from shore so you will quickly find yourself ready to jump. The local dive sites which snake along the shore are ideal for new divers, refreshers or check dives.

There are few names as well known in Sharm as Camel Resort and their dive centre stands out for their excellence, attentive manner and friendly welcome. The original dive centre in Naama Bay has literally decades' of diving experience and local knowledge around Sharm's many dive sites. The team is the very definition of professionalism yet they always manage to combine this with a relaxed atmosphere and careful eye on safety. All PADI courses are available here with the on site pool for training. Technical divers too can log some bottom time or train for deeper descents.

  • Learn to dive to Instructor courses (PADI)
  • Fleet of comfortable day boats reaching Ras Mohammed, Tiran and special trips to the Thistlegorm and Dunraven
  • Technical training available
  • Fast boat service to Trian
  • Great choice for solo travellers
  • Daily guided shore dives
  • Free nitrox for Scuba Travel customers

The dive centre is only a short walk away from Namma jetty where the majority of the Camel fleet depart from daily. This smooth operation takes care of all the kit logistics so you just have to jump aboard and take a giant stride into the water. Two or three tank dives are offered every day. There are even fast boats to Tiran so you can dive the stunning reefs but still have plenty of time to relax on shore with the family too. Shore diving is also a mere moments from the dive centre. Normally a morning and afternoon guided shore dive is on offer so no matter what your passion, Camel Dive resort will tick all the boxes.

Camel: the crew were fantastic so much fun and help nothing is to much trouble. Six days diving every dive was the best ever, Tiran, Ras Mohamed the last day in Naama Bay on home reef, last dive of the week two giant Turtles feeding on sea grass, having a MOT with their cleaner fish, turned away Two big Eagle Rays giving us a flying display circling round Me, Cath and Thomas my buddy, this was where it all started for me 20 years ago with the Scuba Trust.

Hello Georgina, Myself and Simon would like to thank you and the team at scuba travel for arranging our fantastic holiday to Camel hotel and dive centre. We arrived home yesterday and in addition to the 5 days of pre booked diving we enjoyed an addition days diving, a third dive on one day and a night dive. We were extremely happy with the representatives that looked after us during our hotel/airport transfers and would be grateful if you could pass on our gratitude. Due to recent events in Egypt there were less diving options available due to lack of visitor numbers but Camel did a fantastic job of making them as varied as possible. We even managed to enjoy close encounters with two turtles, a first for us. I have attached a selection of photos of our stay, including Simon's pre dinner 'briefing', the dive centre and a deck view of their new Camel Tribe boat although we also love their original boat, the name unfortunately escapes me. We are undecided about our next venture Lesley

I'm fresh back from Sharm and wanted to let you know I had a lovely time. Everyone at Camel was great and the place itself was very nice. The diving was excellent and apart from a day sick I enjoyed it to the full, even got my Nitrox certification. Flights were all good too. Thanks for your good advice on the choice of resort and assistance with all details. I cant wait to go back. Roland Guennou

Hi Georgie I just wanted to tell you that Joel and I had a fantastic trip to Camel Dive Club. He passed his course with flying colours - see pic of us on Jackfish reef, Ras Mohammed. The Camel people inspired great trust. I don't know if you know them individually but Roderigo and Ali were especially good with Joel. The hotel was excellent and the operation slick and reliable. Thanks to you and Scuba Travel in helping to make this happen- and do keep us informed of any dive deals you've got coming up. We want more now ! Best wishes Roger Roger

Diveline have been going to Camel for about 7 years several times a year and we keep going back - they are just so brilliant and look after all the group. The food is excellent and the staff are so helpful. We have tried other dive centres in Sharm but no one does it quite like Camel. Keith Jessop @ Diveline
