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.



  • House Reef at the Marina Lodge hotel beach
  • Fleet of day boats located at Port Ghalib harbour
  • Shore & sprredboat diving options
  • Only 10 minutes from Marsa Alam airport
  • PADI recreational courses
