Scuba Diving in Sharm el Sheikh, Red Sea, Egypt

The diving in Sharm-el-Sheikh is some of the best in the world. The corals and the fish life astound every visitor to the area. The corals come to within 1 meter from the surface and then continue down into the depths. The fish life is all over the reef, allowing visitors the opportunity to view them from the surface. Most of the fish life is the smaller reef dwellers as opposed to the pelagic life, but if you look into the blue the big stuff is there.



The diving is from the Straits of Tiran in the North to Ras Mohamed in the South. With regular trips round into the Gulf of Suez to visit the wrecks of Dunraven, Thistlegorm and the area of Abu Nuas
All the diving in the area is by boats which are about 20m. These are designed for divers, with a large dive deck and easy access in to the water and then a ladder out. There is a sun deck upstairs which has a shaded area and a area where you can soak up the rays (careful you don't get burnt!!).
 The boats all have at least 1 toilet, usually more and a saloon area with tables and comfortable seats. This is where the crew serve lunch, which is usually a very good buffet style lunch.
