Activity description

Short on time but big on adventure, get to grips with scuba diving on this PADI course in the Red Sea.

A brief window into the technicolour world of scuba diving at some of Sharm El-Sheikh's best dive sites, this course is an intermediate step before earning a full Open Water Diver certification - taking you from the pool to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet! Put your new found skills to the test as you explore iconic underwater sanctuaries like Garden & Temple reef on this 2-day course.

Location
Situated on the Sinai Peninsula, Sharm El-Sheikh is Egypt’s most popular diving destination. Close to neighbouring Nabq, Na’ama Bay and Sharks Bay on the Red Sea, its two main reefs - Far Garden & Temple are renowned for their turtle, shark and dolphin populations, whilst wrecks like SS Thistlegorm, the Straits of Titan, the SS Dunraven and Dahab bring more challenging deep dive conditions for advanced divers. 

Activity
A two-day intro, this PADI Scuba Diver course is an intermediary to the PADI Open Water Diver. Working on both theoretical and practical training, you will perform three pool dives and two open water dives under the supervision of a PADI divemaster. From the pool to the open ocean, learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank in a safe environment - then head out to explore the shore and neighbouring coral gardens on two supervised dives, discovering diverse tropical fish and marine mammals like lionfish, barracuda, rays and turtles.

Dive Site Options
Far Garden: Depth 5-45 m 
Far Garden is renowned for its series of large coral formations and colourful tropical fish in a varied spectrum of colours. You will see gorgonian fans, lionfish, glassfish and frequently mantas and turtles.

Temple Reef: Depth 5-30 m
This is a flat, sloping reef covered with soft and hard corals, fan corals and reef fish. Lionfish, parrot fish and mantas are all native to this dive site.

Ras Ghozlani: Depth 7-30 m
A beautiful dive site in the Ras Mohamed National park. This site has a superb array of beautiful table corals, glassfish covered pinnacles and abundant marine life.
