Sportif Dive - diving holidays worldwide

Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea & Middle East

Sharm El Sheik in the Red Sea offers a scuba diving holiday with world class dive sites such as Ras Mohammed & famous wrecks such as the SS Thistlegorm. Sharm lies on the southern tip of the Sinai peninsular and has become a large cosmopolitan bustling and vibrant town, in huge contrast to the once fishing village of more than 10 years ago. It is now one of the world’s most popular dive destinations with world class dive sites of Ras Mohammed and famous wrecks such as the SS Thistlegorm.

Diving
Boat diving and snorkelling to all dive sites are available which include sites such as Straits of Tiran, Ras Mohammed National Park and local sites. Naama Bay has a gently sloping sandy bottom with coral pinnacles, sea grass and plenty of marine life which make it ideal for training. Wreck diving excursions to SS Dunraven and World War II Merchant ship the SS Thistlegorm and are available and depart from Sharm El Sheikh jetty. You can combine a mini liveaboard and hotel stay in Shark El Sheik to get the best of both worlds.

Culture & Activities
Sharm now offers more than world class diving, it also caters very well for the seasoned holiday maker with its high number of hotels and resorts, restaurants, bars and night clubs. The mountainous desert landscape blends into a contrasting but strangely beautiful scenery and the waters edge is washed by the azure Red Sea.
