Camel is Dive Centre of the Year 2011!

We’re thrilled to have been voted Dive Centre of the Year 2011 in the prestigious DIVER magazine awards! We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who voted for us – the award is based exclusively on individual votes so we couldn’t have won, without you! A delighted Hesham Gabr, Camel's founder and chairman, commented: “We’re especially proud to have won the Award for 2011, as this is the same year in which we celebrated Camel Dive Club’s 25th birthday, and in which Sharm El Sheikh received the accolade of World's Leading Dive Destination in the World Tourism Awards. Our divers have shown us huge loyalty during what was also a momentous year for Egypt, and I’d like to thank all who have supported us.” We’ll receive the award (pictured here) at the London International Dive Show, after which we’ll put it on display at Camel for all to admire!

New ‘heart healthy’ dishes at Camel’s Tandoori

New ‘heart healthy’ dishes at Camel’s TandooriAfter a break in his native India, our Chef Abhay has returned to Sharm El Sheikh with a mission: to make Camel's Tandoori the only Indian restaurant in Egypt offering food that is both delicious and good for your heart. To achieve this aim, since 1 February Chef Abhay uses top-quality olive oil in all dishes which previously contained butter. Health professionals recommend that we replace saturated fats in our diet, such as butter, with unsaturated or ‘heart-healthy’ fats like olive oil. Saturated fats are linked to high cholesterol levels, which can lead to heart disease, whereas unsaturated fats can actually lower cholesterol levels. According to Chef Abhay, “There is growing evidence of the health benefits of cooking with olive oil. I’m delighted that the dishes I prepare are now heart-healthy as well as tasty.” Chef Abhay counts Chicken Madras, and for those who like milder spices, Lamb Kebab and Chicken Tikka Masala, amongst his signature dishes. Guests dining at Tandoori may now enjoy these and other delicious dishes on the extensive menu, including freshly baked naan breads and mouth-watering vegetable items – without heart-health worries.

New express speedboat diving in Tiran

New express speedboat diving in TiranNow divers may reach the world-famous coral reefs of the Straits of Tiran in Sharm El Sheikh in less than 20 minutes via our new express speedboat service. We run up to three dive trips and three separate snorkelling excursions every day by speedboat. The ‘early bird’ dive trip at 7am provides an ideal opportunity to explore the famous Tiran reefs, and a chance to spot the schooling hammerhead sharks near Jackson Reef – at a time when most other divers will still be having breakfast. All departures are from the private jetty at Grand Rotana Resort and Spa, near Sharks Bay, and we offer free air-conditioned transfers to/from all hotels in Sharm El Sheikh. At 8.5 metres long, the purpose-built speedboat accommodates comfortably six passengers with full diving equipment. The speedboat’s twin 175 hp engines provide a rapid ride, at a cruising speed of 26 knots (approximately 50 km per hour). We’re really excited about the extra choice and flexibility the new speedboat gives our guests. As more and more divers come on holiday with family members or children who aren’t divers yet, they can still do fantastic dives in Tiran, while leaving time for other activities. The speedboat is also proving popular with guests seeking a more exclusive trip, since it can also be hired for private diving and snorkelling excursions. One dive by speedboat costs 15 Euros supplement in addition to the daily diving charge, and may be booked directly with us at the dive centre. Private rental of the speedboat for diving costs 275 Euros.
