Sinai Divers - Dive the Red Sea

Sinai Divers – Over 45 years of excellence

Diving the most beautiful sites in the Red Sea

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 4 diving centers in various regions of the Red Sea. Our main dive Center is in Sharm el Sheikh, near Ras Mohammed National Park on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, which is classed as one of the best dive sites in the world.

Another one of our centers is 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.

Our Dive Centers

Sharm el Sheikh

Here you will find the best diving the Red Sea has to offer, combined with the best service and a friendly atmosphere, for which Sinai Divers has become famous over the years. Sharm el Sheikh offers plenty of 4 and 5 star hotels, restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, as well as some of the most exciting dive sites you can imagine.

Dahab

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.

Marsa Alam

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

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.

Dive Sites

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.

Situation in the Oasis Dive Resort  

Dear guests, tour operators, friends & staff,

We still remember June 2020 when we started a survey of how many guests would book the Oasis if we re- open the Resort in October.
75% of all who replied would come to Oasis and so we tried to make it happen.
But now in view of the current Corona situation it is making it impossible for us to open the resort in October.

Considering the case numbers development, the permanent changing conditions, the legal situation, the uncertainty of flights and that nobody knows how long Egypt will be on the red list we have no choice but to reschedule the opening date.

Together with our loyal staff we will withstand until Easter 2021 and target the date of March 25. 2021 for the reopening of the Oasis Dive Resort, just in time for the Easter holidays.

Hopefully by then we all can travel, dive and enjoy our vacations again.

😷Stay healthy!

New National Park daily fees  

Dear clients, colleagues and friends

As divers and underwater ambassadors, any change towards a positive impact on the environment is one we can all agree on supporting.

Therefore kindly be informed that as of 1st June 2020, as per a recent decree issued by the Ministry of Environment, new National Park daily fees will be applicable to diving operations and divers performing scuba diving and snorkeling activities in dive/snorkeling sites located in the following areas:

  • Ras Mohammed National Park – Euro 3.50 per person
  • Straits of Tiran – Euro 3.50 per person
  • Blue Hole & Canyon in Dahab – Euro 13.00 per person

Applicable fees will be payable upon check out.

The new fees will be nurturing the funding of the National Park Authority and support its recently enhanced efforts aimed at protecting, maintaining, and monitoring the health of our beloved Red Sea, both on land and underwater.

For the time being, the new fees will only be applicable to the above mentioned areas of Ras Mohammed N.P., the Straits of Tiran and Dahab.

As responsible divers we greatly welcome this move and strongly believe in the implementation of environmental based restrictions, aimed at reducing the diving/snorkeling tourism impact on our lucky area of the world.
