Something for all divers - easy access to coral gardens and The Strait of Tiran and Ras Mohammed and of course the famous Thistlegorm
It's easy to see why Sharm El Sheikh became so popular - it just offers you such a varied array of quality dives sites, many being among the best in the world. Choose from dives such as Ras Mohammed Marine Park to some of the most famous wrecks in the Red Sea the sheer number of dive site means that it really does have something for divers of all levels. Unfortunately due to recent events there are no direct flights into Sharm from the UK at the moment. We really hope that this changes in the near future but we can still get you there on indirect flights or of course there are some great Liveaboards that access the great diving here.
LEARNING TO DIVE It's a great destination is you are learning to dive or if you are an inexperienced diver. There are lots of coral gardens that are really easy to access which offer nice shallow dives with great visibility. This area of the Red Sea offers shelter from the land - this means that we normally experience calm or moderate conditions which are perfect for those new to diving but still with a phenomenally varied collection of marine life. Usually your qualifying dives are shore dives which again are perfect for you to get to grips with your new skills. 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 Sharm el Sheikh.
QUALIFIED DIVERS There are so many exciting dives in Sharm to choose from and they rarely fail to impress. Ras Mohammed is right on the tip of Sini, where the Gulfs of Aqaba and Suez meet. Its currents and nutrient packed waters are filled with shoals of barracuda, jacks and snappers hunting reef fish and in turn they draw in the sharks which hunt them. The towering cliffs on land continue to tumble down in the water with spectacular vertical walls which sink to over 70 metres.
Another fantastic area is the Strait of Trian. Here there are four famous reefs that rise up like huge towers from the deep. The currents here are strong and the masses of plankton bring with it an amazing amount of reef and deep sea fish providing some spectacular drift dives.
Further from Sharm past the tip of Sini lay some of the best wrecks in the Red Sea. As a diver you simply have to tick off the Thistlegorm. Famous for the cargo which is easily accessible, you can see trucks, motorbikes, guns, shells and even crates of wellington boots! It was sank in World War II which is in 30 metres of water and is a simply stunning dive.
