Day trip specifics:
Our Hurghada scuba diving and resort options here run throughout the whole year. From Hurghada you can go diving at the local Red Sea dive sites, as well as Giftun Island, the Thistlegorm, Salem Express and Abu Nuhas wrecks.
The dive site schedule is arranged locally on a day to day basis, depending on where the guests wish to dive, availability, weather conditions and guests' experience.
A standard dive day begins at approximately 8:00 am and ends around 4:30-5:00 pm. Courtesy return transfers are provided for all hotels in the Hurghada area which are beyond walking distance to the dive centre. You are advised to wait outside your hotel for pick-up at around 7:30-7:45 am and driven to the relevant jetty (5-20 minutes). Boat journey times range from 45 minutes to 1½ hours. Special trips can have longer journey times. Please bring your C card, medical form and logbook (proof of 1 logged dive within the last 6 months).
The daytrip dive boats available in Hurghada vary in size, generally ranging between 17-28 metres. These are all hard boats and typically they are staffed by 4 boat crew and 2 divemasters, cruise at 10 knots, and have a saloon, toilets, kitchen, sunbathing area, shaded area, dive deck, ladders, rinse tanks and shower. The capacity varies between 18-30 divers, taking into consideration comfort levels and license numbers. All the boats carry a 40l emergency oxygen tank, MFA kit, evacuation procedures, life jackets, ship-to-shore radio and mobile phone contact.

The re-compression chamber in Hurghada is adjacent to the dive centre. We recommend divers have their own dive insurance policy - see our insurance programme for a competitive quotation. For non-diving accidents, there is a hospital in Hurghada 5 km from the dive centre.
If you have time, we strongly recommend that you consider some of the wonderful antiquities tours in Egypt which can add a whole new dimension to your holiday. Cairo museums' royal mummies, the pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx, a glorious cruise down the Nile staying in a luxury cabin, The Valley of the Kings. All of these can be seen in standard or custome-made packages starting at 6 nights duration. Other activities include 4x4 safaris and camel tours.
Hurghada has become one of the busiest tourist spots on the Red Sea coast and it is also acclaimed as an international centre for aquatic sports. The unique underwater gardens offshore are some of the finest in the world, making diving in Hurghada justifiably famous.
