Support our team’s efforts to conserve our small corner of the Red Sea. Our staff has daily contact with divers and snorkelers who visit us from all over the world, as well as with residents of Sharm El Sheikh. This makes us uniquely placed to inform, educate and practice reef conservation and environmental awareness. We are involved in several long-term projects, listed below. 

We are an SSI Blue Oceans Partner and offer the full range of SSI Ecology Specialties including the Blue Oceans Specialty
As well as taking action to protect our reefs, we practice the SSI Responsible Diver Code which encourages our divers to take more responsibility for their environmental impact both in and out of the water.

Our Blue Oceans activities include:

  • Actively supporting the Ocean Month Clean Up Challenge with regular underwater clean-ups from our boats and by shore.
  • Reducing our Plastic waste by eliminating plastic bottles from our boats and introducing our very own insulated reusable bottle.
  • World Earth Day underwater clean ups.
  • World Oceans Day activities: underwater clean up and fundraising Quiz at Camel Bar.

Follow our most recent events on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Data collected by our instructors and guests helps organizations with which we work, to preserve marine life more effectively. This is what is becoming widely known as ‘citizen science’.

Our partners include:

  • HEPCA Turtle Watch: Our instructors and guests help gather important data on Red Sea turtle behavior in feeding and nesting grounds by submitting sightings and photographs as frequently as possible.
  • The Shark Trust: We support European Shark Week by hosting a pub quiz and donating a percentage of our sales from our special Tribe T-shirts designed by concept artist Dan Lish.
  • Turtlewatch Egypt – May 2024 we hosted the amazing team at Turtlewatch Egypt for the evening at our Camel Bar for our guests and Staff. They gave us an amazing overview of the biology and lives of Sea Turtles, what environmental factors are affecting their everyday lives and what we can do to help.

Each year we host visiting marine biologists. They join our dive boats to answer questions and provide more information to divers and snorkelers about marine life and habitats.

Our Eco Tribe team organizes regular presentations by pioneers of diving and conservation, at our Friday Divers Nights in Camel Bar. Guest speakers have included award winning underwater photographers Maria Munn and Dr Alex Mustard, wreck expert Peter Collings, The Shark Project’s Andreas Bode and of course, Dr Andrea Marshall.

For many years, we have worked closely with major international tour operators to brief their local representatives about reef conservation, so they may properly inform their visitors to Sharm El Sheikh. We ensure that every year thousands of holidaymakers are informed about the importance of not touching coral or feeding fish. We maintain an active role in educating schoolchildren that visit Sharm during briefings and information packs that we provide to their teachers to take back with them.

There is always room for improvement but we have already received some awards for our efforts so far: Green Star Hotel Award, Green Fins Gold Rating, Environmental Achievement Awards, Certificates of Recognition, Clean Sharm Award and Virgin Holiday Responsible Tourism Award.
