Amazing pristine reefs and access to some of the best wrecks in the world
Hurghada is the original commercial dive resort in the Red Sea and has now turned in to an established popular resort that is almost exclusively catering for divers. There are so many dives site extremely close to resort, a lot of which are sheltered. There are lots of fantastic coral reefs and drop off dives to choose from and Hurghada benefits from having access to the famous wreck graveyard of Sha'ab Abu Nuhas.
LEARNING TO DIVE If you want an ideal place to learn to dive then Hurghada is a great choice. It has a fantastic array of sheltered and safe dive sites that give you excellent visibility and lots of marine life to see. Many of the spectacular reefs are in shallow water so are ideal for beginners. We can arrange for you to do your referral dives here in the UK with our sister company www.idiveteam.com and then you can do your qualifying PADI open water dives with one of our affiliated schools in Hurghada.
QUALIFIED DIVERS As a qualified diver you can explore all that Hurghada has to offer. There is such a diversity of marine topography here with incredible corals, pinnacles and towers to experience along with such an abundance of marine life. If you want to dive with dolphins then you stand a good chance with Sha'ab El Erg's resident pod at this huge horse shoe shaped reef.
One of the highlights at Hurghada is the stunning marine park which surrounds the Giftun Islands. It has up to ten sites which cater for all levels of divers and there is certainly plenty to keep everyone completely captivated including a spectacular wall falling to over 50 metres. Lots of opportunity for drift dives here and you can often see some of the larger reef species and quite frequently passing pelagic animals.
If wrecks get you excited then you must experience a day boat to Sha'ab Abu Nuhas - an incredible dive site which has four complete wrecks. It's halfway between Ras Mohammed and Hurghada and is a patch of reef next to a major shipping lane, which is why it is now called a wreck graveyard! There is lots of marine life on the wrecks and huge shoals of glassfish swirl around the Chrisoula K and the Gannis D and batfish and lionfish are common place.
