In Depth

Egypt is well known for its scuba diving in the Red Sea with the option for both land-based and liveaboard diving. We have selected a small portfolio of hotels with stunning house reefs, ideal for those looking to learn to dive or to avoid lengthy boat trips. The best dive sites in Egypt typically offer incredible visibility, pristine hard corals and clouds of red anthias as a backdrop, with turtles, Napolean Wrasse and even dolphins cruising by. Liveaboard diving trips take scuba divers further offshore, with a chance of seeing some larger pelagic marine life such as oceanic white tip, thresher and hammerhead sharks.
