Camel Dive Club, Naama Bay
If you are staying in Naama Bay, you will use our main dive centre at Camel Hotel.
Camel Dive Club is one of the best-known diving centres in Sharm El Sheikh. It was founded in 1986, and is a PADI five-star Instructor Development Dive Resort. Our main dive centre is open from 8:00 to 18:00, directly beside the Hotel. You may check in here for guided boat diving, snorkelling and tec diving. There is a lockable store room for stowing your equipment. Our dive school (open 8:00 to 18:00) is located in the courtyard next door. The separate school allows Camel instructors to give extra attention to student divers.
Diving and snorkelling by boat
We offer boat diving and snorkelling to all dive sites including the Straits of Tiran, Ras Mohammed National Park and local sites.Boat excursions depart from Na’ama Bay jetty, which is a few minutes walk from our dive centre. Wreck diving excursions to SS Dunraven and SS Thistlegorm depart from Sharm El Sheikh jetty, approximately fifteen minutes away.
NEW - Diving by express speedboat
Our express speedboat, Camel I, departs directly from the private jetty at Grand Rotana Resort & Spa and reaches the Straits of Tiran in less than 20 minutes. It’s ideal for divers who want to combine exploring the spectacular Red Sea with other activities during their holiday. We run several diving excursions by speedboat, every day. The speedboat may also be hired for private diving and snorkelling trips; please contact us to book.
Diving and snorkelling by shore
Some of our learn to dive courses include dives from the beach in Naama Bay. Naama Bay has a gently sloping sandy bottom, with coral pinnacles, sea grass and plenty of marine life. It is ideal for training dives. If you are staying at Camel Hotel, you may snorkel from the beach. Snorkel equipment may be hired from the diving centre.
We teach a full range of PADI learn-to-dive and other diving courses. Confined water dives are made at our specially-designed diver training pool, inside Camel Hotel. The pool has three levels, from 1.2 to 3.4 metres depth, which are ideal for diver training. We have two air-conditioned training rooms. Open water training dives may be made from the beach or boat.
