Egypt has a year round season, but the best temperatures are during the spring and autumn. The Red Sea offers all types of diving; fantastic wrecks, beautiful coral reef systems, drift dives, dramatic wall dives and a great chance to see larger animals such as hammerhead and thresher sharks, dolphins, whale sharks and even the magical dugong.

Less than a six hour flight from Scandinavia, Egypt and the Red Sea offer not only world class diving, but an unforgettable experience for those interested in history and culture. Why not take the opportunity and explore the Valley of the Kings in Luxor or a guided tour in the desert, all a day’s trip from Hurghada?
The northern section of the Egyptian Red Sea is separated by the Sinai Peninsula, with the gulf of Aquaba to the east and the Suez Canal to the west. With its unique underwater environment, this area has drawn in divers from around the world for years.
The Sinai Desert, legendary from biblical time’s stories, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Jagged red mountains rise out of the barren hinterland, a stark contrast to the extravagant excesses of life and colour beneath the surrounding crystal clear waters of the Red Sea. For many centuries the Sinai was largely unpopulated except for the Bedouin tribes and small fishing communities, but over the last 20 years the area surrounding Naama Bay, near the fishing community at Sharm el Sheikh, has blossomed into a bustling resort.
The southern Egyptian Red Sea is considered to be the vast area between Hurghada and the border to Sudan. This area encompasses 600 kilometers of largely deserted and barren coastline, bordering one of the planet’s richest marine environments.
Today the old fishing village of Hurghada and El Gouna have, much like Sharm el Sheikh, become resort areas. Marsa Alam and Marsa Shagra on the other hand, are more newly developed areas where merely a few years ago there was not much more there then a harbour for the liveaboard boats to depart from.
