Diving & Safari
For those interested in undersea life and in taking the plunge, the Red Sea is an excellent holiday spot with its varying depth of water, its numerous coral reefs, the variety of its species and the abundance of its colorful fish. Yet, if you don't dive, snorkeling and glass boats excursions are another alternative. We offer half-day and full-day diving and snorkeling packages to the various coral reefs.

For divers, Naama Bay and Ras Mohammed have the best diving sites and reefs, a main tourist spot. Besides, Nabq, located 35 Km from Sharm El Sheikh, is known for its abundance of mangroves and has recently been added to the areas under the protection of the National Parks of Egypt. Egypt's first marine national park, Ras Mohammed is located approximately 25 Km southwest of Sharm El Sheikh.

» Dahab
located approximately 100 Km northwest of Sharm El Sheikh, is still considered to be one of south Sinai's most treasured diving spots. It is famous for its golden beaches and deceptively deep diving sites, such as the Blue Hole, Canyon and the Lighthouse.

» Hurghada
located 600 Km south of Suez, hosts a variety of tourist villages and diving centers for its mild climate year-round lends itself to all sorts of marine sports and activities. The most popular snorkeling spot in Hurghada is Giftun island.

» Safaga and Qusseir
are also known for their surf and coral reefs.

» Marsa Alam
is known for its offshore coral reef and is a favorite spot for snorkelers, scuba divers and fishermen.

» Desert Safaris
in four-wheel-drive vehicles have developed the sense of the "desert experience", those nights beneath the stars and days spent cruising the desert wilderness, enjoying clear skies, a campfire and maybe also some solitude.

» Experience Desert Safari
It is easy to arrange day or overnight trips into nearby desert whether taken by four-wheel-drive vehicles, camel safaris or even hikes on foot. But an expedition into Egypt's Western Desert is a real challenge (The great Sand Sea south of Siwa or the distant highlands of the Gilf Al Kebir and the Gebel Uweynat). Because of the extreme summer heat, desert expeditions usually take place between the months of September and March.
