It is well known that the Red Sea provides many thrilling diving spots in this region. Due to the ideal location of Makadi Bay between Hurghada and Safaga, the most beautiful reefs of both diving areas can be reached, and they still offer a large choice of intact and beautiful sites. Dedicated diving teams show guests the beauties of the Red Sea in full-day and half-day trips. On a weekly basis, there are trips to the famous 110 metre long wreck of the Salem Express and the Panorama Reef. The beautiful local reef with small wrecks is very inviting for early morning and night-time dives. In addition, sunset dives are offered in the summer months. Even non-divers and snorkellers are welcome to come abroad the diving boat at any time.

United Arab Emirates
Fujairah provides ideal conditions for a diving holiday in the U.A.E. The diving possibilities here are considered to be the best in the entire U.A.E. The spots for diving are at least as breathtaking and captivating as those in the Red Sea, but there are far fewer visitors. Fujairah is the only Emirate in the Indian Ocean where the water is almost at the temperature of bath water. As an almost 90 kilometre long reef runs along the coast, most diving areas are very close to the land. When diving, discover the diverse, fascinating underwater world and observe colourful clownfish, blowfish, and batfish.There are also special dives on offer to a mysterious wreck.
