The diving in the Red Sea is always astounding and were were not dissapointed here in El Quesir
the on site Diving center at he Akassia is the German based team from Diving.de but dont worry they speak several languages and are fully qualified
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!
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.
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.
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.
