Ideal for divers who like uncrowded dive sites

Hamata is located close to the border with Sudan, in the south of the Egyptian Red Sea coast.  The lack of a nearby international airport had kept this little gem a secret to all but a few in the diving community, but with the great diving on offer, the secret won't last too much longer.  There is a real mixture of dive sites here with some great shore diving, some wrecks to explore and day trips to the famous Fury Shoals with its marine life, rich corals, swim throughs and passing pelagics. Owing to the transfer distance, many divers are put off Hamata, but the great diving and lack of divers crowding the sites make the journey worth while.  Along with the great coral life, there is the chance to see a variety of marine life, including Barracuda, Dolphins, Turtles, Napoleon Wrasse, Reef Sharks, Stingrays, Moray Eels, Pipefish and even the occasional passing Whale Shark or Manta Ray!

More Info

 Step back in time and imagine a small diving resort, and then think Hamata. The deep south of the Egyptian Red Sea is an unspoilt paradise on land and beneath the waves. Hamata has some of the best Red Sea diving right on your door step, including the legendary Fury Shoals. Our dive centre partner is ideally located right on the beach of the Zabargad Berenice Resort and is a PADI 5 Star IDC Resort.

Offering fabulous house reef and day boat diving, this area is the divers' choice when you're looking for some of the most spectacular reefs the Red Sea has to offer. The day diving boat is just three minutes away at the marina, whilst the house reef is within walking distance and a great choice for those with non-diving partners and underwater photographers.
