Diving in Hurghada

The beautiful coral reefs of the Red Sea boast one of the most impressive spectra of marine life.

The warm waters of the Red Sea, with a wide variety of dive sites, attract divers from all over the world. Visitors can find here the unparalleled richness of a variety of hard and soft corals, a similarly impressive spectrum of fish species, a wide variety of crustaceans, and a range of sponges. This rich, colorful marine life is also coupled with stunning underwater rock formations in some places.

Hurghada, Egypt, offers a range of interesting diving opportunities from coral reefs to wrecks. Some of the best diving spots in Hurghada include Giftun Island Marine Park, Carless Reef, Dolphin Reef and Abu Nahas Reef. The Abu Nahas dive site is one of the best wreck dives in the Red Sea. Four of the seven wrecks are suitable for recreational scuba diving – Kilmon M, Ghiannis D, Carnatic and Chrisoula K. Moreover, some of the resorts in Hurghada have their own housereefs, such as the Hotels of Makadi Bay.

Excellent underwater visibility and constant sunshine provide an opportunity to explore this wonderful underwater world all year round.
