More Info

Still relatively undiscovered, diving in Marsa Alam is teeming with impressive reefs and beautiful topography, home to hard and soft corals in pristine condition and a variety of colourful marine life, just a short boat ride from shore.
Boat diving will take you to the dramatic walls and drop-offs of Elphinstone Reef where you get really close to sea turtles, anthias and an impressive variety of sharks including hammerhead, grey reef and oceanic white-tip sharks. There is also the chance to swim with dugongs and dolphins here. Predominantly a dive destination, there are fewer activities for non-divers in Marsa Alam, but it is a great place to relax and enjoy the tranquillity.
 

 

Some of the most pristine and stunning reefs teeming with marine life, fewer divers and possible pelagic encounters, with a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere.
