Daily diving in Sharm El Sheikh
As a certified diver, you may dive by shore or join our daily boat trips. There are over thirty dive sites near Sharm El Sheikh. Our friendly and experienced instructors will guide you around some of the best. We take care of all the logistics, so you can relax and enjoy your dives.
You will usually make your first dive by shore or boat at a local site along the coast. Local sites are sheltered from waves and current and offer an easy and relaxing start to your diving holiday. Our instructors will advise you on other trips including Ras Mohammed National Park, the Straits of Tiran, SS Thistlegorm and SS Dunraven, Dahab, night dives and diving by speedboat.
- Divers are accompanied by a dive guide
- Maximum of five buddy teams per guide
- Full briefing before every dive, covering safety and features of interest
- All our dive centres and boats carry emergency equipment
- Choose a full or half day diving, or diving packages
Please note that if your diving certification involves a depth limit up to 12m, we require you to have a private dive guide for daily diving.
Diving by shore
Shore dives allow you to easily combine diving, with relaxing at your resort with your friends, family or partner. You can make guided shore dives straight from the beach with our centre at Grand Rotana Resort & Spa. Shore dives are easy and relaxing, with plenty to see underwater. We typically schedule guided shore dives in both morning and afternoon, every day.
Diving by boat
Join one of our boat trips for the widest possible choice of dive sites, and a relaxing day out. All our dive centres offer diving by boat. Our boats are comfortable and spacious with sundeck and shaded areas, saloon, and toilets. A freshly-prepared buffet lunch is offered on board. Hot and cold drinks are available. All boats are equipped with lifejackets, marine safety equipment, VHF radio, oxygen, and first aid kits.
Diving by express speedboat
Our express speedboat reaches the Straits of Tiran in less than 20 minutes, departing directly from the private jetty at Grand Rotana Resort & Spa near Sharks Bay. It’s ideal for divers and snorkellers who want to combine exploring the spectacular Red Sea with other activities during their holiday. For your comfort and safety, we require that you complete at least one day of regular diving with us prior to joining a speedboat trip. Please book your speedboat trip directly with our diving centre.
Check dive and Refresher course
To ensure that your dives with us are safe and enjoyable, if you have not dived in the last 12 months we will ask you to make a Check dive. This will be the first dive of your diving package. Before the dive, your instructor assists you in assembling your equipment and briefs you about the skills that you will practice. You spend the first few minutes of the dive practising basic scuba skills with your instructor, before continuing on a guided underwater tour.
If you have not dived for two years or more, you will need to take a half-day Refresher course. The Refresher aims to refresh your existing diving knowledge, so that you may participate comfortably in guided dives. The course consists of a short quiz to refresh diving theory, skills practice in confined water and one open water dive. Your instructor will assess your skills and comfort level during the dive, and recommend suitable sites for guided dives on subsequent days.
