    Dive the Red Sea

    by Sam_Hall Written Aug 17, 2005

    I went to Egypt wanting to come back with a PADI and Divers International made that happen. To the point that i am now an advanced open water diver. (yes i took two courses)

    This was all made possible by two things, a fantastic instructor and the variety of sealife that swims around your feet even (before you even head under the water)

    Equipment: If you have already dived before you might have some of your own equipment. If not it will all be supplied to you at a very cheap hire rate.

    Camel Dive Experience

    by cherrybug Updated Aug 4, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Diving is what the red sea is all about, with over 1000 species of fish on offer and some wonderful dive sites. We went with Camel Dive club which is in the centre of naama bay. They have dive masters of all nationalities so language is never a barrier. They are also very ecologically conscious which was why we went with them.

    Equipment: You can rent dive equipment from Camel and they also offer the usual padi courses.

    Diving in Red Sea

    by joolssss Written Mar 8, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to try this for the first time here is a great place to start. It costs about £35 for about an hour, includes your wet siut and gear, and about 40mins under water with a guide. If after this you wish to do more you can go out for day dives at an extra cost ( about £30) .

    Equipment: You don't need tobring any gear its all included. We went to The Camel dive club and they were excellent.

  • One of the best places to dive

    by Diverella Written Nov 15, 2004

    The scuba diving there is a great experience. The boats and the crew are very good and helpful.
    The people are very strict (as it should be) for protecting the nature.
    Be careful not to touch the corals as they may be stinging!
    They serve 4-5 course of meal at the boat for lunch. (30 EP) Unlimited Coca Cola...
    Even the people accompanying you and who do not dive can enjoy themselves by swimming and snorkeling.

    Equipment: The equipment in the boat was reasonably good. However, you should bring your own BC, suit, fins etc. Don't bother bringing your gloves: they will not let you wear them.

    One can really enjoy many sports activities in Sharm el Sheikh, for example sailing and windsurfing. If you are not an experienced sailor of surfer, there's always an instructor available for some extra cost. And since the weather is always windy in Sharm, fun is guaranteed.

    Equipment: some good will

    Parasailing

    by belgrade03 Written Nov 14, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Parasailing must be a truly unique experience, for the brave. I wanted to try it but was afraid of height, speed and the possibility of water impact. An hour of parasailing in Naama Bay costs around 180LE and there is even a chance for two people to go parasailing at the same time for about 250LE.

    Equipment: Courage

    Snorkelling

    by belgrade03 Written Oct 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One can go snorkelling even in shallow waters since there are corals and fish even along the beach. While snorkelling around large coral reefs with hundreds of fish species near them, I felt like being in a large aquarium. Fish are very peaceful, swim around you but don't pay any attention at your presence.

    Equipment: Snorkelling equipment can be hired on the beach or bought in the centre of Naama Bay since there are numerous shops with aquatic equipment.

    Swimming in the Red Sea

    by belgrade03 Written Oct 14, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beautiful, warm sea, ideal for swimming.
    There is no sea weed, but only sand on the bottom, instead. It's like you are swimming in the large pool with sand on its bottom since the water is crystal clear. There are small corals even along the beach, and fish are only located near corals and coral reefs.

    Equipment: Swimming suits

    DIVE NOW... WORK LATER!!!

    by Tripack Updated Sep 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My scuba diving centre was Magic Divers. Everything was well organized. As you may know @ Sharm we could take the boat from Naama Bay Harbor or Sharm Harbour because of the reef along the coast. So every morning I took the bus for a 20 minutes ride to one of the three boats : Mundy 1, Rosetta and Speedon. Divesptos are numerous in the Red Sea just have a look to my travelogue and dive to have a unforgettable experience...

    Equipment: As usual and don't forget your buddy...

    Diving at a reef

    by Pablos_new Updated Apr 24, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great experience of diving in one of the world best sea national parks - atoll Tiran.
    They will found a native speaking instructor for your language - English, Russian, German, Italian.

    Equipment: Everything is onboard. The only problem was with a suite for my 8 years old son. There was no any suite of apropriate small size, so diving for him was short - 10 min and he became frozen ;(

    Sailing and boating the Red Sea

    by TinKan Updated Jan 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The water off the coast is so nice for a day out sailing or for just boating around in. The sun never seems to let up so remember to bring your sun block with you out on the boat and a towel and maybe even a hat...

    Scuba diving in the Red Sea

    by TinKan Written Nov 27, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As anyone knows we love to Scuba dive and we go every chance we get. I had lived in Saudi Arabia for 3 years and was lucky enough to get to dive on the Saudi side of the Red Sea every weekend all year round and had wanted Dion to see what the Red Sea was like.

    I still feel that the Saudi Side is so much better that the west side of the sea but it is always a pleasure to dive where the water is just like a bath tub.

    The dive trips here are a but expensive but every dive is worth it.

    Equipment: Do not forget to bring your dive gear.

    Sharm is one of the best divingspots in the world, and You dont need to dive - snorkelling is perfect here

    A must link (if You didnt press my link in the beginning):www.sinaidivers.com

    The link is not a commercial but it has some nice tips an pictures!

    Equipment: You can rent all the equipment here, but I think that buying Your own siliconmask will give a more pleasant trip in the water - It wont leak!
    And please read this:
    Damage to these natural treasures is due to actions that may appear to be perfectly normal but in fact can and do have serious consequences. For example, a swimmer, diver or snorkeller resting, standing or walking on a coral surface damages the fragile tissue surface of the coral animal. The coral is then open to bacterial attack and disease, and will often not recover from this impact.

    Equipment: If you didn,t have some equipment for swming under the sea you can rent before the boat move and you can ask the boat manager to bring you some equipment .
