Diving & Snorkeling

Exploring the Red Sea’s world-famous marine life is one of the most thrilling parts of planning a trip to Egypt. These miraculous waters are home to over 300 species of coral and over 1,000 species of fish, and many of them can’t be found elsewhere in the world! Diving and snorkeling can be enjoyed in all of Egypt’s Red Sea destinations, such as Hurghada, Al-Gouna, Soma Bay, and Marsa Alam. Sharm al-Sheikh and Dahab are known worldwide as diving hotspots for their easily accessible shore dives and dozens of diving centers that are fully-equipped to meet the needs of divers of all levels of expertise. Learning to dive in Egypt is a popular holiday activity for water sports lovers, and Dahab’s Blue Hole is a diving challenge taken on by hundreds of divers and well worth the visit for any thrill seeker. There are also numerous nature reserves, such as Nabq Bay near Sharm al-Sheikh and Ras Abu Gallum near Dahab and Nuweiba, where divers can explore unspoiled and protected coral reefs and endangered marine life.
