Red Sea scuba diving is one of Egypt's must-try activities, with some beautiful coral reefs and world class dive sites to explore, including the Blue Hole, Ras Mohamed National Park, and the Thistlegorm wreck. Egypt offers a mix of shore diving (best from Dahab), boat dives and live-aboard trips (normally from Sharm-el-Sheikh and Hurghada or Marsa Alam). Another unique option is to dive over the ancient ruins in the Mediterranean waters around Alexandria.
We offer PADI Diving courses from Open Water up to Dive Master and Instructor level, as well as Technical Diving, with some excellent Egyptian and ex-pat instructors. Our preferred base is the small town of Dahab on the Sinai Peninsular, which has some excellent dive sites and we think is the best place in Egypt to learn to dive, but we also offer diving trips and live-aboards throughout the Red Sea and in Alexandria. We have some group departures on our Dahab PADI courses that anyone can join, and also run a lot of private and tailor-made diving holidays for families, groups of friends and diving clubs.
Our scuba-diving packages and PADI courses in Egypt can also be added to or combined with any of our other cultural sightseeing and adventure tours.
With just a few basic swimming skills, you can embark on this popular diving course and be certified to dive in over 180 countries. This course is your passport to reefs, coral cays, lagoons, wrecks, and an undersea world you've only ever dreamed of exploring. Our tour includes a full Sharm-to-Sharm or Cairo-to-Cairo package, all your equipment hire and course fees.
If you are already an experienced diver, then this 10-dive package tour in Dahab is an ideal way to try out some diving in a new, or already familiar destination. Dahab has some world-class reefs, most as shore-dives, though some boat diving is available as well. The tour can be run on any dates, and customised to fit your own requirements.
This tour extends your diving training and qualification from the PADI Open Water Course. You complete 5 set dives, including a Navigation Dive, Deep dive and three 'Adventure' dives (from our selection). This is a short, exciting course based in Dahab with its world-class dive sites, which is designed to give the Open Water diver a broader understanding of diving in the open water environment.
This tour is aimed at people who are keen on completing both the PADI Open and Advanced Open Water Courses in one go. The diving is based in Dahab with its excellent shore-diving, and also includes time in Cairo at the start and end of the itinerary giving you the chance to see a little of what Egypt has to offer above ground as well as beneath the waves (also available without Cairo if preferred).
The PADI Rescue Diver course is unique in that it not only develops a new level of confidence and ability in your own dive skills, but also demonstrates how to recognise and respond to other diving emergencies. The course itself is both enjoyable and rewarding. Our tour includes a full Sharm-to-Sharm or Cairo-to-Cairo package.
