Diving in Sharm el-Sheikh

Explore diving in Sharm el-Sheikh

Sharm el-Sheikh is home to some great local diving as well as being your gateway to many liveaboard boat and itinerary options. Wrecks, walls and reefs, it’s all here. Some of the sites do experience strong current, making them unsuitable for beginners, but a rich swirling dive of colour and life for those a little more advanced. 

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 Titan, the SS Dunraven and Dahab too. Shore dives and speedboat diving options are available for those that prefer.
