Scuba Dive in Egypt

The Red Sea is one of the top destinations for scuba divers. Thanks to the warm waters you can find a huge array of fish and corals, and there are even a number of wrecks to explore too.

If you need to learn to dive, there are lots of diving schools that you can join up to, who will teach you the ropes and get you the required qualification. Most lessons start in a pool, so nothing too scary to start you off!

 

If you are looking to learn a new skill it is important that your travel insurance policy covers you for it if it is an activity such as diving, skiing etc. You may need to take out extra coverage on certain activities, just in case of an accident or illness.
