Diving in Egypt


There is so much to explore in Egypt..  Exploring the wonders of the underwaters is certainly among them…

It is recorded that Scuba diving in the Red Sea started in the 1950s when Greek and Italian workers began spear fishing whilst their stay in Egypt.

It is now known that the Red Sea explored by the Austrian zoologist Dr. Hans Hass, a well-known underwater movie maker, and the famous French diver Jacques Cousteau has amazing coral reefs that are a magnet for thousands of species.  Diving has matured since then and after so many years it is now one of the most interesting adventures to be experienced by many visitors.

Today, one can find fully equipped facilities, liveaboard diving, a myriad of programs and internationally certified instructors.

The Red Sea resorts of Hurghada, Sharm El-Sheikh, Marsa Alam, El Gouna and Taba are wonderful destinations that offer diving holidays packages and facilities all year round because of their moderate temperature. It doesn’t matter if you have never dived before, if you’re a beginner or a veteran, you’ll find the right program for you and you’ll surely be coming back for more.

Diving and dive centers in Egypt are managed and regulated by the Chamber of Diving and Watersports (CDWS).
