Orca Divers

Safaga

The ORCA Dive Club in Safaga is something like the mother of all ORCA bases in the Red Sea. Technical diving has an important place at the base, rebreathers can be serviced in the dedicated technical workshop and divers can take advantage of the different gases available to satisfy the different needs of any technical diver.

The 3 spacious dive boats from ORCA are moored at the dive centre’s own jetty, immediately adjacent to the diving centre. They are used to access the inner reefs around Tobia, but even more so the outer reefs. Highlights include the panoramic reef, which already has the characteristics of an offshore reef, Middle Reef and Abu Kafan.

The wide range of 50 equipment sets available to rent makes it possible for every diver to find something in his/her sizes. There are also 12, 15 and 20 litre steel tanks available to divers.

A membrane system which provides 800 litres Nitrox per minute, as well as four other Bauer compressors (350 l/min and 600 l/min) ensure that there is always enough air or breathing gas available in Safaga.

Please Note:

All courses include equipment and instructor services. Manuals and certification fees are not included and will be charged at the dive centre.
