Diving possibilities

You have four options for diving with us:

  1. Dives on the house reef

You can dive at any time in the house reef directly in front of the dive center. House reef dives with a guide are possible daily at 9:20 am and 2 pm. You can get your tanks at the dive center so that you can easily prepare your equipment there. You can dive in the house reef either from our jetty or via the beach shore. Please make sure you register in advance at the reception of the diving center in order to register on the list and receive your tanks.

  1. Short trips by boat

On several days of the week we offer short trips twice a day with one dive each. We have plenty of beautiful dive sites to choose from, which are max. 30 minutes away by boat. The meeting points for the tours are at 9 am and 1:45 pm.

  • Early morning dives (meeting point 6 am) are also offered by us.
  • Sun-set dives (meeting point depends on the day) are only available in the summer months.
  • Night dives on request
  1. Half day tours by boat

Several times a week we offer a half day tour with two dives within a max. 30-minute driving time. The meeting point for the tour is at 8:20 am. We also have plenty of beautiful dive sites to offer. Drinks are available on the boat and are paid for in cash to the boat crew (water 0,50 €, soft drinks 1 €). Tea and coffee are available for free.

  1. Full day tours by boat

We also offer daily tours with two dives. The meeting point is at 8:10 am. Various beautiful dive sites are also available here. There is usually the option of a third dive on daily tours by previous arrangement (surcharge 25 €). For the daily tours, we have a large boat on which you can also get lunch and drinks.

The lunch buffet costs 5 €, water 0,50 € and soft drinks 1 €. Tea and coffee are included. Lunch and drinks are paid for in cash on the boat to the boat crew. If you would like to have lunch on the boat, please put a cross next to ‘lunch’ on the excursion list for planning purposes.

On the specially marked “long-distance”-tours, you can also have breakfast on the boat (costs 2 €; cash payment on the boat to the boat crew). For planning purposes, please put a “B” for breakfast or/and a “L” for lunch on the excursion list.

Snorkelers are also very welcome on all our boat tours.

Diving packages

Pre-booked dive packages can be dived on all four options with two dives per day and on consecutive days. “Long distance” surcharges are not included in the diving package and are payable separately. The dive packages are personal and not transferable to other divers.

Check-Dive

Your first dive with us is a check dive , which you can do daily on the house reef or on certain boat trips. Of course, the guide will accompany you on this dive without extra charge.

Divers with more than 25 logged dives can dive independently with a buddy after the check dive.

Divers with less than 25 dives must be accompanied by one of our guides. A guide costs 5 € per person per dive.

Diving courses

We also offer you the opportunity to take various diving courses with us. We offer these according to SSI standard and on request according to PADI standard.

Our courses range from Open Water Diver to advanced courses to Dive Master. For diving beginners we also offer try dives in our own house reef and from the boat.

Nitrox

We offer all certified Nitrox divers in the interests of safety:

NITROX 32 % FOR FREE

Insurance Deco chamber

We support the deco chamber “Deco International” in Safaga (approx. 10 minutes away).

With a one-time donation of 7 €, you can insure yourself for three weeks. With this insurance, up to six hours in the decompression chamber would be free of charge in the event of a diving accident. If you are unable to proof that you have insurance, you will have to pay the entire costs yourself.

For check-in, we need from you:

  • Diving license / Brevet
  • Logbook
  • Medical certificate (valid for 2 years up to the age of 40, after that max. 1 year old)
    or a completely filled out medical self-disclosure form
  • Passport or National Identity Card

Check-Out

At some point, even the best time comes to an end and you have to go home again:

  • Please return all your rental equipment and weights to us.
  • Please bring your logbook with you so that we can compare our entries.

The best time for check-in or check-out is at 10:00 am or 3:00 pm

Taxes / Fees

  • All prices already include the value added tax (VAT) of 14 % and the amusement tax of 10 %.

 

  • Permission fees of 8 € per diving day and per person will be charged on site.
  • For boat tours a marine park fee of 5 € per diving day and per person will be charged on site.
 
  • In order to be fair to all divers, we must inform you that we will charge the full price for the boat tours in the event of cancelations or no-shows if you do not contact our reception, by telephone or by e-mail and let us know by 5 pm the day before at the latest.
  • You only pay the rental fee for your rental equipment for the days on which you actually dive. We therefore ask you to inform us if you take a break from diving in between.
