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 dive resort, “The Oasis”, in cooperation with Werner Lau Diving Centers. In 2009 we opened our first Sinai Divers location in Aqaba, Jordan.
Dahab is a relaxed Bedouin village with an easy-going vibe, beautiful beaches and incredible views of the Sinai Mountains. It offers some of the best wall dives the Red Sea has to offer, along with interesting caverns and canyons.
The region around Marsa Alam is a diving paradise. It is much quieter than other parts of the Red Sea. Here there is something for everyone, including diving on the house reef, going to isolated bays by car or taking the boat to legendary reefs like Elphinstone, Abu Dabab and Samadai Reef.
Aqaba is an ideal destination for divers and snorkelers, as well as serving as a hub for trips to the famous desert city of Petra and desert adventures in Wadi Rum. Time moves slower here and it is the ideal location to experience the Arabian atmosphere without the crowds. Diving in Aqaba is about quality over quantity.
The Red Sea offers some of the best dive sites worldwide. The dive sites from our northernmost centre in Aqaba down to the deep south offer an incredible variety of flora and fauna. There are dives sites of many depths and profiles; from shallow reefs with colourful coral gardens and small creatures such as ghost pipefish, seahorses, Spanish dancers and nudibranchs, all the way down to incredible drop-offs, caves and deep canyons. Ras Mohammed is considered one of the top 5 dive sites in the world. Schools of barracuda and snappers, as well as groupers, napoleon wrasse and sharks are all regularly sighted there. The magnificent Straight of Tiran offers incredible reefs with the chance of big encounters. The Canyon and the Blue Hole in Dahab are must-dive locations for every technical diver. The Thistlegorm, the Dunraven and the wrecks of Abu Nuhas are absolute highlights for every wreck diver.
