Diving in Egypt

Are you wondering what the diving is like in The Red Sea in Egypt? It won't be easy to put it all into words and describe the incredible beauty that awaits you beneath the waters surface. For the last 30 years, The Red Sea has become known worldwide as the Diving Mecca and words alone simply cannot do it justice.

The beauty of Egypt is not restricted purely to the Pyramids and the Nile Valley. As a divers paradise we must mention Taba in the far north of Sinai, Marsa Alam on the borders of Sudan, Sharm El Sheikh, El Gouna, El Quseir, Safaga and of course Hurgada. These are some of the few, 'must mention' top diving locations in Egypt essential to any great, self respecting dive guide book.

Only a few hours flight from central Europe, with affordable flights and ideal year round weather, the Egyptian Red Sea is one of the best diving trips on offer considering cost/quality/distance. If you are still in doubt and need further convincing, here are a few things that will make the decision much easier for you;

  • Visibility: Is exceptional almost all of the time!

  • Wreck Diving: Captivating and widely accessible to different diver levels.

  • Water temperature: Rarely below 20'c regardless of depth and in summer you most likely won't even need a wetsuit.

  • Marine Life: Books full of hundreds of pages wouldn't be enough to cover the diversity of the marine flora and fauna that call the Red Sea home. From the smallest to the largest fish, invertebrates, marine mammals, sharks, corals, sponges, gorgonians, kelp, crustaceans. During the day and at night, the sea is teeming with life.

  • The crowds: For some perhaps, there are quieter spots than Egypt, however the Red Sea is vast and there are plenty of live-aboard excursions on offer if you're looking to escape and get some alone time.

Egypt has made great efforts to preserve its underwater environment and all the Red Seadive sites are well worth visiting. In short, and because we unfortunately only have this page to cover all we can, the Red Sea should not be a 'maybe' on your list of places to dive in your life, it should be 'a must' and nothing less!
