Our dive centers are led by Rolf Schmidt and Petra Röglin, who started diving here over 45 years ago. They are counted among the most experienced diving pioneers of the Sinai and the Red Sea. All Sinai Divers’ guests stand to benefit from their extensive knowledge and experience.
Sinai Divers operates 3 diving centers in various regions of the Red Sea. Our centers are located in the Bedouin village of Dahab, 100 km north of Sharm el Sheikh; in the Egyptian deep south, near Marsa Alam, we operate our own resort, “The Oasis Dive Resort”. In 2009 we opened our first Sinai Divers location in Aqaba, Jordan.
Dahab is dominated by a more relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, has beautiful beaches and is a typical Bedouin village located very close to the foot of the breathtakingly beautiful Sinai mountains. Some of the best cave and wall diving in the Red Sea can be found here.
The region around Marsa Alam is one of the most beautiful diving paradises in the world and one of the few diving areas on the Red Sea that is not so heavily frequented. There is something for everyone here: diving on the house reef, by car to the somewhat remote bays, or by boat to one of the legendary reefs such as Elphinstone Reef, Abu Dabab, and Samadai Reef.
Aqaba is an ideal destination for divers and snorkelers and a starting point for excursions to the famous desert city of Petra and desert adventures in Wadi Rum. Time seems to pass more slowly here, and those who want to enjoy the Arabian atmosphere without the hustle and bustle will find relaxation here. Diving in Aqaba stands for “class instead of mass”.
Dive sites in general
The Red Sea is home to some of the best dive sites in the world. The dive sites near Aqaba, the northernmost branch, and the dive sites in the southernmost part of the Red Sea offer an incredible variety of flora and fauna. The depth and profiles of the reefs vary: from shallow reefs at 10 meters with colourful coral gardens and small creatures such as ghost fish, seahorses, Spanish dancers and nudibranchs to breathtaking drop-offs, caves and canyons.
Sinai Divers Dahab also offers day trips to Ras Mohammed National Park and the Straits of Tiran. These dive sites are ranked among the top five dive sites in the world. Schools of barracudas, snappers, groupers, napoleon wrasse, and sharks are regularly spotted there. Dahab’s Canyon and the Blue Hole is a MUST for every tec diver. Highlights for every wreck lover are the “Thistlegorm”, the “Dunraven” and the “Milion Hope”.
