Hurghada

Explore the wrecks of Abu Nuhas or enjoy a family beach diving holiday.

Hurghada is the wreck and liveaboard capital of the Red Sea offering weekly trips out to the “big 4”. Hurghada is also a great place to have a beach diving holiday with the family.

Insider's View

Hurghada’s topography offers a mixture of shallow, fringing reefs, inshore islands and offshore reefs descending into the depth. This region is also famous for its offshore islands and reefs that rise from the depth to the surface as walls and drop offs. The spectacular marine park surrounding the Giftun Islands and Abu Ramada provide stunning and beautiful coloured coral and a huge variety of fish including barracuda, grouper, stingrays, triggerfish and many more.

For wrecks enthusiasts, the Salem Express to the south of Safaga is worth a visit. The wreck sunk in 1991 after hitting the reef at night and perished over 600 victims making one of the greatest marine tragedies of all time. Today, the propellers make an impressive sight and hard corals are now colonising the wreck.

Hurghada is also a favourite point for liveaboard departures that leave the port to explore the dive sites dotted to the north and south. There are a great range of trips and boats available to suit all levels of divers from Advanced Open Water upwards some specialising on the wrecks while others offer a mixture of reef and wreck diving.
