    Hurghada Sports & Outdoors

    Although Voodoo Divers were not the closest dive outfit to where I was staying, I opted for diving with them based on recommendations from fellow divers and I was not disappointed. They are a relatively small dutch outfit but their boats are in excellent condition and the attention to detail was second to none. The dive guides and instructors...

  • Scuba Diving

    If you're looking for some sports action in Egypt, the best one I can think of is scuba diving in Sharm El-Sheik or Hurgada...These are the hot spots for these type of activities and judging by pictures I've seen and comments I've read, the Red Sea is one of the most beautiful spots in the world to dive...don't miss it if you like to dive ;o)

  • Snorkelling

    You don't need to learn to dive in order to enjoy the underwater life by the sea. Snorkels and fins can be rented for as little as 10LE for a day in Dahab. With the reef only being about 5 metres away from the shore in most places this makes snorkelling an ideal activity.

  • Diving

    The Red Sea has some of the best diving sites in the world. It is also a relatively cheap place to learn to dive. There are literally hundreds of dive sites in the area, particularly in the resort towns of Hurgada and Sharm el-Sheikh. I took my PADI open water course in Dahab with a company called Divers Down Under and thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Scubadiving in Dahab

    There are many diving centres in Dahab and I chose Nesima as it had a good reputation and I saw on their website everyone who hadn’t done a dive for six months had to do a check-out dive.A very good thing with Nesima is that they never dive in big groups, five divers are the maximum. And the equipment is good and the staff nice. The diving centre...

    The main reason people come to the Red Sea is diving. The underwater world is beautiful and amazing. Experianced divers say that this sea is one of the best diving areas in the world. If you are not a diver, you can always snorkel. It's easy and nice. But you have to put sun-block and it is recomandable if you wear a white T-shirt while you do...

    Well - everyone who's been there knows. Take it easy anyway - it is quite hard, depends on the weather of course. But remember, U'll be in the dark, camels everywhere, hundreds of people making their "pilgrimage"... To arrive it takes ab 2.5 hrs. I've made it in 1 hr 40 min. once, but believe me - it' s not worth it. U'll have many small bedouin...

    Well! After the intriguing theory lesson, the new appointment was at the pool again for the first dive with all the necessary equipment.There have been a few slight differences between this phase and the trial the day before, such as:I'll have to wear the terrifying suit......and a nice 10 kgs belt too......I had to prepare the cylinder and...

    Scuba diving is a new sport to me. I have had some opportunities to dive in a few different types of water but nothing (yet) as spectacular as the Red Sea. It was like swimming in an aquarium. Absolutely unbelievable. There is tons of sea life to see all around you. The water temperature is perfect and the dive locations are phenomenal. If you go...

    Basslets and soft coralls at Abu Ramada, the north side, Hurghada. Without the flash light, the red colour of the corall would not be seen at this dept.

  • Snorkaling

    Snorkaling can be best organised from either Hurghada of Sharm. Hurghada is otherwise a bit of a dump, but trips will include everything you need and can put you over reefs just a few metres deep, hopefully without dragging up half the coral with its anchor.
