Earth Day clean up in Na’ama Bay
“Big change comes from lots of people doing little things”. This was the motto for our latest clean up in Na’ama Bay to celebrate Earth Day 2011, on 22 April. There were several underwater and desert cleanups around Sharm, as many were eager to dive and take a day off for a good cause. Many thanks to everyone who helped to preserve our beautiful environment, and to our photographer Adolfo Maciocco who took pictures of the day.
Photos: Sharm El Sheikh is more than bubbles
Are your non diver friends reluctant to join you on a holiday to Sharm El Sheikh? Is your partner worried that a day on the boat would be all about bubbles and fish? Show them and enjoy Erich Reboucas’s latest gallery. This time Erich decided to get the camera out of its housing and treat us with some stunning views of the Sinai Mountains, the Red Sea, reefs and unforgettable skies.
