As you would expect from a country that is very well known for being one of the best diving destination in the world, most diving centers in Egypt are well-equipped and prepared to organize dives for large groups. However, with such a high throughput of tourists, you should always be sure to double-check any rented equipment, regulators, cylinders and jackets. Also, don't forget about taking plenty of sunscreen, but only that which is biodegradable and will not damage coral reefs (as many regular sunscreens do).
Egypt, with the richness of the Red Sea, is one of the most important diving destinations on our personal map of the world. Throughout the shoreline, which spans 2450 kilometers, you will find many, many fantastic places to dive. The most famous are the resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab, or Marsa Alam.
In recent years, Wadi Lahami, one of the few areas of the Red Sea that can boast having so many beautiful reefs, has become popular. It is advertised as a fantastic place to visit for divers that do not like or need unnecessary comfort/luxury. It certainly comes highly recommended by us.
