Dive Sites
Sharm el Sheikh offers some of the best diving in the Red Sea and we have access to over thirty sites where we dive regularly.
The local spots - along the mainland coast - are all reachable within a maximum journey time of 70 mines while the journey to the Straits of Tiran can take up to 2 hours.
A day spent there offers a huge choice of different spots for stunning drift dives and mooring dives. Ras Mohamed to the South is 1 ½ hours away and has some of the most famous dive sites in the Red Sea.

The world famous wreck of HMS Thistlegorm lies 4 hours to the south of Sharm el Sheikh and the wreck of the 19th century cargo ship, the Dunraven, lies just 2 ½ hours away. Regular trips are made to both of these wrecks.

In addition to boat diving, shore dives are available right in front of the Dive Centre and we can arrange night dives for you or excursions to Dahab (travelling there by coach) where you can shore-dive at the Blue Hole and the Canyon.
With such a variety of dive sites to choose from, we can guarantee you some wonderful diving.
