Hurghada is one of the original Red Sea resorts with a mighty reputation for it's varied diving. El Gouna builds on this tradition, making even more dive sites accessible by day boat. Giftun Island, Abu Nuhas, Um Gamar, Shaab El Erg... these are just some of the dive sites that made the region famous. The majority of dive sites are all under an hour from shore - pick from wreck dives, shallow reefs or plunging drop offs (no wonder Hurghada is also fast becoming a tek diving hot spot). Novice divers and certified divers will all find the ideal dive site to jump in on. Just grab your kit and away you go!

Emperor have a purpose built dive centre rin the Abu Tig marina -The classrooms are comfortable for those all important theory sessions. A vast range of courses are taught from intro dives to instructor level so there is always someone to hand to help you through the next bit of training. Few centres have operated in this region as long as the Emperor team so not only can you expect a professional team, they have the local knowledge that makes all the difference. Need to rent some kit or a camera? Pop along to the kit room who have all the goodies.

  • PADI 5* IDC centre
  • PADI, SSI and BSAC courses
  • Technical training & dives available
  • Onsite camera rental

Certified divers are just as well looked after as those learning to dive in Hurghada. Most dive sites are an hour or less from the jetty and the fleet of boats departs daily for two or three tank dives. These are large, comfortable boats with plenty of space to kit up or relax in the sun between dives. Special trips and night dives are all arranged locally if you want to squeeze in yet more excitement or bottom time. Nitrox and technical gases are also available on request. And at the end of the day, grab a drink and join the team to watch the sun set to celebrate another awesome day.
