Egypt’s reefs are teeming with life; bright corals and clouds of fish dazzle with a kaleidoscope of colour. With wonderfully calm and clear conditions, Egyptian reefs offer ideal conditions for new divers, marine life enthusiasts, wreck divers or anyone simply interested in exploring light-filled reef systems.
Due to the excellent visibility and the easy access to excess depths it’s an attractive location for technical diving and training. Egypt offers the full gambit of diving opportunities; wrecks, walls, drifts, pinnacles, shore dives, day boats and liveaboards.
Many of the diving destinations offer access to famous Egyptian historic sites, but it’s also easy to arrange a holiday split over a couple of locations so you can experience a variety of dive sites and some culture too.
