Diving in Sharm el-Sheikh

Explore diving in Sharm el-Sheikh

Sharm el-Sheikh is home to some great local diving as well as some superb wrecks, walls and reefs, it’s all here. Some of the sites do experience strong currents, making them unsuitable for beginners, but a rich swirling dive of colour and life for those a little more advanced. We also have fantastic dive sites for the more inexperienced diver and the absolute beginner.

Sharm el-Sheikh boasts around 30 different sites to explore on day trips alone. Boats are large, comfortable and purpose built for diving. Ras Mohamed National Park offers a number of exciting sites for those taking daily dive trips. Most dives here are drift dives. Day trips leave to the SS Thistlegorm, the Straits of Tiran, the SS Dunraven and Dahab too. Shore dives are also available for those that prefer.
