Water temperatures rarely drop below 22° C and can rise up to 29° C in the hot summer months where marine boosts in abundance!
Nearest is the area of Gifton Island with perhaps the greatest variety of dive sites.
Between Gifton Island and the Hurghada coast are more than ten reefs, in the area locally known as the Small Gifton Area, offering some great drift and mooring dives.
Further south is the Bain El Gibal National Park which is home to a number of dramatic and famous dive sites such as Erg Somaya and Small Gifton island Reefs, with vast coral gardens, hundreds of species of fish and favorable environmental conditions for all divers.
Night diving is so simple and exciting with plenty of ‘nightlife’ on the house reef and at nearby dive sites reachable by boat. Even with the torch turned off you can still see for over 10m under a full moon. On most nights you can witness the bio-luminescence where the tiny particles of disturbed plankton glow like magic green wizard’s dust! Coupled with what you see on a night dive is the tranquility of diving in a 3-d medium of dark calm. Any initial feelings of apprehension are soon replaced by the excitement of being under the sea during…night time; an experience not to be missed.
We aim to always arrange everything to your convenience, so if your meeting time is 8:30 am then that’s the time you need to turn up, not a minute before!
When you arrive for your briefing, you will find your freshly rinsed and dried wetsuit laid out on your chair along with one of our computers (unless you have your own) and your diving equipment readily prepared with a fresh tank on the Boat or in the dive center with your weights and tank of choice.
