一软一硬珊瑚保护区无与伦比的知名度，埃及ian Red Seateems with endemic fish species and is undisputedly one of the world’s top dive destinations. The stark contrast between the arid, desert landscape and the vibrant oasis of color that unfolds down below will continue to amaze you each and every single time you begin your descent. From shallow coral gardens, to dramatic drop-offs, caves, lagoons, and wrecks- diving Egypt is everything but monotonous. At first glance, selecting your port of call may seem like a daunting task due to the sheer abundance of choice. Many divers will be delighted to dive the Northern waters around the Sinai Peninsula resorts, while more experienced divers might prefer heading to destinations further down South along the coast, near the towns of Hurghada andMarsa Alam.
Select your destination and book your flights to the nearest international airport (Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport or Hurghada International Airport), as domestic flights in today’s Egypt are limited, and will account for long lay overs. You will also want to avoid road travel, which is slow and bumpy at best due to aging, uncared-for infrastructure. Most resort-based dive sites will be accessed by a short boat ride whether you are up North in Sharm el-Sheik, or down South in the vicinity of Hurghada, and either route has got the goods to keep you busy underwater from three days up to a week. Liveaboards are highly recommended and remain the best option for those that want to see the most, with the added advantage of avoiding the crowds which are often found around Egypt’s resort-based dive sites and are one of the turn-offs of the Red Sea.
气候干燥（天热，夜晚凉爽），终年温暖，气温在沿海地区，从99°F至68°F，和两个单季，夏季（6至9月）和冬季（十月至五月）。Boasting an average winter water temperature of 75°F, the Red Sea is one of the world’s warmest seawater bodies, so don’t be put off by the cooler winter air temperatures, and plan your Egypt dive trip for the milder months (September through November and April through June in particular). You will avoid scorching summer temperatures but still enjoy warm beach weather and comfortable diving.
这是沉船的400英尺的二战英国人cargo vessel that was sunk in 1941 by German bombers as she waited to enter the Suez Canal. The bottom of the vessel came to rest at a depth of 100 feet. It was discovered and explored by Jacques Cousteau in 1955, then lost again. The sheer size of the vessel is impressive enough until you explore her holds -ripped open by explosion wholes- to find a cargo of military gear: Milford cars, Bedford trucks carrying BSA motorcycles, airplane parts, ammunition, rifles, radios… Boat daytrips are usually organized fromSharm el-Sheikhand planned for two descents (orientation) and (penetration) with the option of a third.
The Brother Islands
Mantas, turtles, barracudas, big tuna, schools of snappers and jack fish, accompanied by white tip-sharks, hammerheads, grey reef, silver-tip, thresher sharks and the occasional moonfish are just some of the fish you will list in your dive log’s Brothers entries. These two islands (Big and Little brother) lay about 95 miles Southeast ofHurghadaand are arguably the top Egyptian dive site. You can dive in about twelve different areas, and with the exception of two wreck sites most of the diving is dramatic walls with ripping currents.
An excellent dive site on this sandy bay with seagrass where you will have the chance to spot dolphins, whitetips, hammerheads, and the infamous dugong. Beginners will feel at ease as there is no current, and depth is shallow, reaching a mere 53 feet at its deepest part. It is located 18 miles Northeast of Marsa Alam, and most dive operators organize boat trips to it daily. Sign up for the earliest one, as diver and snorkeler pressure can be high, especially in the summer months.
The dynamite combination that is Egypt’s cultural allure, sandy white beaches and year-round warm temperatures has drawn increasing tourist numbers to the Red Sea during the last three decades. International airports, hotels and resort towns have sprawled up along the coastline, engulfing old fishermen villages, and drawing localsen masse上班的酒店业。高水位标记是2009年，在此之后，阿拉伯之春起义的动荡和政权更迭停止外商投资的流动，大大减少游客人数，使度假胜地之间的竞争异常激烈。在许多方面，这意味着优胜劣汰，游泳或汇酒店，潜水商店和潜水俱乐部一样，只有最好的罚站。新金沙线上

Having just returned from Sharm after diving from M Y Juliet I would recommend this trip to anyone, novice or experienced. There is quality diving for all grades, and the dive guide makes you feel safe and secure what ever the conditions. The boat and crew are great, food is plentiful and cabins comfortable. The Captain certainly knows the locations well and the guide, Wael (Willey) knew how to avoid the mass dives often experienced in this region. His timing was immaculate. Nitrox is availab...
The organization was smooth and flight uneventful, we were collected from the airport and soon arrived at Nesima where a warm welcome was offered. The rooms were local style and very comfortable, if perhaps the plumbing was a little rustic. Beautiful pool with excellent service. Nesima was just on the edge of both the main restaurant and shopping area so very convenient and you could dine in if you chose. The Dive Centre was friendly, well run and flexible. Our guide Nubi was the best, hi...
I love Oonasdivers and was glad I could book the boat I wanted but using Oonas. Contact is always fantastic. This is my second holiday with them and in a couple of months I am going on a photo workshop with them. As you can see I have the Oonas bug.
