The Egyptian Red Sea cannot be beaten for value for money - within a five hour flight you have access to some of the best diving in the world with a selection of fabulous hotels and liveaboards. We specialise in Egypt, not just in the dive spots but we also have intensive knowledge of the interior of the country. Many of us have lived and worked in the area for many years so please do call for some first hand advice and recommendations.
Very good good normal bad
During the winter months of November to March the Red Sea coastal spots of Egypt offer a very comfortable 22 - 28 c, ideal for a bit of winter sun. As you head into the summer months the temperature rises steeply peaking to around 40c in August! However, the high temperatures are made more comfortable with very low humidity and a constant seas breeze. During the winter months we would recommend between 7 and 5 mm wetsuit but then just a 3mm shortie for the mid summer months. Please note that on some of the deeper dive sites you can encounter colder under currents. Egypt can be visited year around with equally high diving.
This remote spot has reefs that are amongst the most pristine in the area as a result of the very strict marine park rules enforced by Subex Dive Centre. This resort is also perfect for snorkellers with some fabulous reefs, accessible directly from the shore.
El Quseir is a remote spot on the mid-southern coastline of mainland Egypt set along a beautiful fringing reef. There is little else to do here except relax and dive or snorkel on the pristine house reef. The resort of El Quesir and the 5* Movenpick Resort offers a tranquil setting in an astounding hotel with fabulous installations. The diving here is all very accessible directly from the jetty or from ribs (there is also the chance to do 1 or 2 day dive safaris further afield).

Although there are some excursions possible form here, El Quseir is best suited to those just looking to relax and take in the odd dive… maybe read the odd book too…
The hotel has its own bars and restaurant naturally, but there is little else around… part of its charm for most!
