    Go diving!!!

    by Mara_2 Written May 10, 2010

    Excellent diving inside the Solitaire Resort!
    Really great, great guys!
    It is a German operated diving center, but they speak fulently english and some italian. All the people working there are really very nice and helpful!
    We had a great time diving with them and so many beatiful underwater scenes.
    Take care to make several night dives at the house reef: they are really beatiful! We saw in one night-dive only 6 spanish dancers!!!! Fantastic!
    Insist to make a boat whole-day trip: we swam with 50 dolphins and were not at Dolphin House site!!!! Great experience!

    Trip to the atolls

    by PALLINA Written Jan 28, 2009

    Reachable by bus and than by boat from any resort in Mars'Alam, they have really nothing to envy to Carrabean's and Maldives' atolls. Such atolls are very small and wild; there is nothing there besides sea and beach, so be sure that your boat can offer at least something to drink. Actually we bought an organized tour from the hotel and it costed more or less 50 usd each.

    Sornkel or dive with dolphins

    by adelinemmc Written Oct 27, 2008
    Dolphins are protected

    A boat trip to Dolphin Reef will give you a chance to see dolphins. A huge pod lives there and is protected by marine park status.

    The park is divided in 3 zones, one is accessible by all, one only by snorkellers and the most protected one is a no-go area for humans so the dolphins can be free from harassment.

    Sightings are not 100% guaranteed but chances are good.

    Costs in 08 were 50 euros (inc. of a 15 euros marine park fee) and included lunch on board.

    Dive the House reef at Marsa Shagra or Marsa Nakar

    by adelinemmc Written Oct 24, 2008
    Porcupinefish

    See my tip on accomodation for details of the Red Sea Diving Safari eco-camps. Both have a great house reef with two possible dives: North or South.

    You can choose to be dropped or picked up at the end of your dive by one of their speedboats.

    Lots of fish and critters to see.
