Experience Sharm El Sheikhs world class diving.
Our dive centre is Mares equipped and our PADI instructors will take you on dives to remember.
Red Sea Waterworld arranges boats leaving every day to the sites of the Northern Red Sea. All the tanks and equipment are carried and transported to the boat by our staff. All you have to do is to check that your equipment is aboard before the dive guide gives the instruction to leave.
Once away from the jetty the dive guide will give you a briefing on the boat facilities and safety procedures.
All boats carry oxygen kits, first aid kits, radio, and a limited selection of spare dive gear and weights.
The diving services include tanks, weights and the services of a dive guide to show you around at the dive site.
A private guide can be arranged if required, at an extra charge.
the dive sites range from the Straits of Tiran in the North, Ras Mohammed in the South and Shaab Ali and the Thistlegorm wreck in the Gulf of Suez.
First day diving will be on two local sites between Ras Nasrani and Ras Katy. These sites have slight reef slopes and are much better to acclimatize to the area than the extremes of the area, which have a potential for strong currents and very deep water.
The whole mainland area is of uplifted coral; all sites are close to shore as the coral starts at the water’s edge. This means the shore reef extends 10-30m out at about 1m depth.
The reef then drops vertically creating the typical walls of the area. These drop offs range from 10-800m. Care needs to be taken in crossing the reef if diving by shore and control of depth is needed during the dive. With very deep water the possibility of strong currents is present. These can occur at any headland called “Ras” in Arabic, Ras Mohammed being a very good example of this.
The narrowing of the Gulf of Aquaba at the site of Tiran Island creates a funnel effect and is prone to strong currents caused by tidal action.
