LUXURY RED SEA DIVING HOLIDAYS

 

The Nile, the temples, pyramids, the valley of the Kings and the Queens, these are the sites that truly put Egypt on the tourist map. Ancient Greeks, Christians, Romans, pharonic nations and Arab dynasties have all played their part in building Egypt’s impressive architectural and cultural heritage and Cairo’s medieval core. The Western desert extends infinitely into the Sahara, dotted with oases feeding quiet islands. South down the Nile are Luxor and Aswan with their Temples and ancient burial grounds.

Stretching from the dive sites of the Sinai Peninsula to the reefs of St Johns and the Sudan border, Egyptian waters enclose some of the Red Sea's finest diving. An extension of the Great Rift Valley the Egyptian Red Sea is famed for its mix of deep walls, gentle coral gardens and wreck graveyards.

Historically speaking, Egypt is not only one of the world's oldest civilizations but probably also one of the oldest holiday destinations in the world. The ancient Greeks, Romans and others came here to rest and recuperate. There is much more in Egypt than pyramids and monuments - windsurfing and scuba diving in the Red Sea, for example, vibrant night spots, luxury hotels and restaurants. Egypt is a rewarding cultural experience. Nowadays, besides the gigantic pyramids from the era of the Pharaohs, we find modern wonders of the world such as the huge Aswan Dam, which has given the Upper Egyptian Nile Valley a new face. Marsa Alam is Egypt's unfinished rare diamond, just waiting to be shaped. With the beautiful Wai El-Gemal National Park, Marsa Alam is an unspoilt protected area, appealing to nature orientated people. It is not uncommon to see turtles coming to lay their eggs on the beach!

Hurghada is where the Red Sea adventure all began over 30 years ago. Travellers were coming here before there was an international airport; the 3-4 hour transfer from Luxor was worth it. Now it is a well established tourist resort for kitesurfers, divers and sun worshippers with the airport only 10 minutes away.

Hurghada now is a hot spot for mass market sun seeker from Russian and Europe, but there are still a few hidden gems at the very far South of the resort, around 40 minutes drive to Sal Hasheesh. Down here the ‘real’ Egypt starts with stunning desert scenery, with a backdrop of the mountains to the West and the turquoise Red Sea to the East. Here you will also find one of the only truly luxurious hotels along this coastline, the Oberoi Sal Hasheesh. A beautiful luxury hotel with superb house reef and one site dive school, perfect for all levels.

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.

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).

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.
