"Departure for Diving" Hurghada by DSwede

Hurghada Travel Guide: 696 reviews and 1,691 photos

During my second visit to Egypt, I came to Hurghada over land, driving from Luxor.

I did not stay much time in the city, since my reason for coming here was to board a boat. I lived on a liveaboard for 8 days, diving the Red Sea. The diving was fabulous. There were many wrecks, many of which are easily accessible from Hurghada.

Living on the boat gave us the opportunity to go into the deeper waters to swim with the pelagic (manta rays, thresher sharks, oceanic white tips, etc). We also visited ”The Brothers” Islands.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Fantastic diving to be had
  • Cons:A good fair distance away from anywhere else, either requiring a long bus or flight.
  • In a nutshell:If you have the time and money, a diving holiday here would be recommended.

    Thinking about the possibility of spending a week here to do some snorkelling during the winter. Great photos! Gillybob greetings

    Got it - Hurghada is for Deep Blue lovers, or was it Le Grand Blue!? I've only seen the Luc Besson one - Cheers, Marina
