Express speedboat diving
Our express speedboat, Camel I, 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.
We run several diving and snorkelling excursions by speedboat, every day. The ‘early bird’ dive trip at 7am provides an ideal opportunity to explore the famous Tiran reefs, and even a chance to spot the schooling hammerhead sharks near Jackson Reef. Late afternoon departures are also planned during summer time.
Camel I is purpose-built to accommodate comfortably six passengers with full diving equipment. The speedboat is 8.5 metres long. Its twin 175 hp engines provide a rapid ride to Tiran, with a cruising speed of 26 knots (approximately 50 km per hour). A professional dive guide from the Camel team joins the captain and deckhand on all trips. Drinking water is offered on board.
How to book
We require a minimum of three divers to run each dive trip. You may sign up for speedboat diving at our dive centres, or ask your dive guide. 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. The speedboat may be hired for private diving or snorkelling trips too: please contact us to book.
