ORCA Dive Club Soma Bay is based at The Breakers, a modern lifestyle hotel of superlatives, specially designed for enthusiastic divers, snorkelers, and kite surfers. From the dive centre, it is only a short walk across the 420 metres long jetty that takes you to one of the most beautiful house reefs in the Red Sea and access to the drop-off reef of Ras Abu Soma.
The dive centre has a large open-air area with check-in counter, training rooms, diving bar with a wonderful view over the beach, several drying rooms for guest equipment and a shop with the most important diving equipment, T-shirts and souvenirs.
Catering to all divers, Orca Dive Club is well stocked with rental equipment in all sizes and offers a variety of tank sizes including 8, 10, 12 and15 litre aluminium tanks. They have a dedicated compressor including a nitrox system only for house reef dives and additional compressors and a nitrox membrane system in the Soma Bay Marina for boat dives.

The house reef Soma Bay promises spectacular dives. Unlimited diving from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The diving equipment is driven to the end of the jetty with environmentally friendly electric vehicles, so that everyone can start their house reef dive with fresh vigor. In the marina, a 5-minute drive away, the day boats are waiting for the full-day and half-day trips, the speed boats for early morning trips to the panoramic reef, for trips to the nearby reefs such as Tobia Arbaa or for drift dives along the house reef Abu Soma.
