Sharm El Sheikh

Sharm El Sheikh is a very well known holiday destination for tourists however, what lies beneath the waves is just phenomenal. Sharm has warm waters throughout most of the year and also has great conditions. With abundant marine life and great wrecks to explore. Some of the top dive sites found in Sharm include The SS Thistlegorm, Ras Mohammad National Park and the Straits of Trian.

Hurghada

Hurghada itself has over 40 liveaboard trips available to divers. There is so much to see and not enough time to do it. Hurghada is the second main diving area in Egypt after Sharm El Sheikh.
