A holiday in Egypt will introduce you to a wealth of exotic treasures, including ancient pyramids, tombs and monuments, but there are also many majestic wonders to be discovered under the sea. This tour will take you on an exhilarating scuba diving adventure in Sharm El Sheikh, one of the best diving destinations in the world, where you can explore the beauty and diversity of the Red Sea.
Located on the southern tip of the beautiful Sinai Peninsula, between the Red Sea and Mount Sinai, the seaside resort of Sharm el Sheik offers an amazing variety of world-class dive sites along the coast – for beginners and experienced divers alike. From introductory dives to exhilarating night dives, your scuba diving adventure will introduce you to exquisite coral gardens, spectacular sea walls, intriguing wrecks and fascinating caves and canyons.
Combined with good visibility and abundant sea life, it is no wonder that this region is a paradise diving destination, attracting enthusiasts from all over the world. Occupying part of the Great Rift Valley, the warm, crystal clear waters of the Red Sea are famous for hosting an incredibly diverse and beautiful undersea world, which includes approximately 1000 species of fish and over 400 species of coral. Marine life thrives amongst the shallow, coral covered shelves, although depths can reach up to 2,500 metres in the deepest part of the Red Sea.
The southern and eastern shores of the Sinai Peninsula, in particular, offer unrivalled dive sites. The dazzling colours of the coral reefs and gardens here will take your breath away, abundant in exotic underwater flora and hundreds of hard and soft coral species of all shapes, sizes and colours. These fragile ecosystems are also teeming with some of the richest sea life in the world, including hundreds of exotic fish species, turtles, moray eels, jacks, snapper, surgeonfish, barracuda, starfish, octopus, cuttlefish, a variety of rays and sharks, and a myriad of other fascinating marine species that will delight and amaze you.
Sinai’s breathtaking and magical underwater playground will thrill the most experienced of divers, and undoubtedly inspire the novice’s to continue their adventures. All courses are taught in professional Scuba Diving Centres by highly-trained dive experts (PADI Licensed) eager to share their experiences with you.
