Hurghada diving schools

by yambabe

We are hopefully going to visit Hurghada for a week in early February.
Any recommendations for dive schools.
I would like to do the first part of the PADI certificate on this trip then spend time sightseeing and snorkeling the rest of the time.

The water would be pretty cold in February, did you know it?
One more reason to have your own wetsuit with hood (at least 5mm or 5+5)
good bubbles :-)

Was not sure about the water temp for February. Might wait until I arrive until I decide to go diving. The sea temp in the reviews did not seem that much colder than April, will have another look.

Thank you for the reply

Re: Hurghada diving schools

Sure the temperature in April is colder but I can tell you (my own experience) that in Feb is not a broth. beside all this winter is pretty cold there.
To have your own wetsuit is a suggest also for snorkeling not only diving and it's yours and it will wrap up fine, it's not only for "hygienic reasons".

Travel Tips for Hurghada

Hurghada Tourist Background

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Since the 1980s has been continually enlarged by American, European and Arab investors to become the leading bathing resort on the Red Sea. Holiday villages and first class hotels provide excellent aquatic sport facilities for sail boarders, yachtsmen, scuba divers and snorklers.

Now, with it's crystal clear water, untouched reefs and a multitude of ship wrecks, it has become one of the best Egyptian tourist destinations.

Hurghada is world renowned as a center for some of the world's best Diving. Within a couple of hours from your hotel you can be amongst a group of islands that are the home to Dive Sites guaranteed to astound even the most experienced divers.

Diving and Snorkeling

by Kushelkitten

If you come to Hurghada you just can't lounge on the beach all day, well you can but you would be missing out on the wonder that is the Red Sea.

The Red Sea has some of the finest coral reefs in the world and they are teeming with life. If you arent interested in Scuba diving you can always snorkel. Its inexpenisve and easy to learn. Almost every store in the area will sell you a snorkel and mask it cost about 56LE which last year converted to about €8. Even though you cant go deep you can still see amazing fish.

Diving is outings and lessons are offered at almost every hotel and if you dont want to go through them you can always find a dive shop near by. Many places offer trial lessons so you can see if you really want to spend the money to learn. All will supply you with what you need for a fee. See above

Hurghada Nightlife Hotspots

by Overdose about Ministry of Sound Beach Club & Hed Kandi Beach Bar

Hurghada Nightlife is fortunate enough to be home to two of world's coolest brands bubbling within the city, both Ministry of Sound and the super-stylish Hed Kandi have venues here....

Starting off with the world's only Hed Kandi Beach Bar which opened in March 2007, usually a pre-club/lounge bar, it's resident DJs spin at a selection of themed nights (all tied into an album's genre). On average, twice a month you can find a special event with anything up to and above 1000 revellers dancing the night away, these are the Full Moon Party and Hed Kandi LIVE (which I've attended recently)... with a LIVE Saxophone player complimenting the DJ team, a delicious crowd rocks the Red Sea coast in true party-style.

Ministry of Sound's Beach Club is also the only beach-side MoS outlet the world can offer, with its shorelines being lapped at by the warm waters of the Red Sea. I attended the start of their monthly hip-hop/R&B special events Smoove with DJ Junior J! Absolutely incredible place, dancing on the sand under the palm trees and stars with an array of beauties will be a memory I'll never forget!!

Roll on next year's vacation... Smart casual, trainers are cool, beach-ware cool but no bikinis and men must wear something on their chest...

Choice enough

by dedeckerm. about Peanuts Bar

There are plenty hotels and restaurants in Hurghada as it is a major tourist place. Hurghada has an excellent selection of Egyptian, Middle Eastern and international restaurants.
Although the native fare is very simple and mainly consists of bread, beans and vegetables, restaurants offer a much wider range of dishes.
Egyptian cuisine is a mixture of Turkish and Arabic influences.
Specialities include soups and 'mezze' appetisers such as stuffed vine leaves, stewed fava beans and sesame seed paste dips. Main course favourites are grilled chicken, lamb shish kebab and stuffed pigeon.
The desserts are also delicious with delicacies such as baklava, a mixture of filo pastry, honey and nuts.

SAFARI

by Beograd

When I say SAFARI, the first thing that comes to my mind is Nigeria, giraffes, elephants and killing all those inocent animals. Well, safari in Egypt is totaly different.

It is something that you shouldn't miss. Imagine going to a desert.... Nothing but, well NOTHING.... That's why it's called a desert ( this was very clever statement :-)

My group was an experimental for our guide, and he took only 10 of us. He was supposed to pick us at 10 am and came at almost 11am. I think that you can see how pissed we were while waiting for him.
