Scuba diving



With their countless coral reefs and colourful fishes, Egypt’s diving spots belong to the most beautiful and undestroyed underwater areas of the world. 

Scuba diving in Egypt is mainly done in the Red Sea either based on land or on live aboard boats. Scuba diving holidays could have various additional elements such as sun bathing, swimming or surfing. If you wish to learn diving, there are special scuba diving classes offered to teach how to discover the underwater world in the right way. In addition you can combine scuba diving holidays with different guided tours such as Sinai treks.

There are a number of locations to scuba dive in the Red Sea. They are based on mainland at Egypt’s East Coast like El Gouna, Hurghada and Safaga or at the Sinai Peninsula like at Sharm El Sheik, Nuweibaa, Dahab or Taba.

For beach based scuba diving holidays the accommodation will be in 3 to 5 star hotels.

If you are a scuba diver who is not interested at all in beach holidays, live aboard scuba diving boats are also available in order to concentrate only on the terrific underwater world. The live aboard boats vary in their luxury of accommodation and capacity.
