Shaab El Erg is an 18-meter-deep dive site which can cater to all levels of divers, as the current here is of medium intensity.

The dive spot is accessed only by boat.

The horseshoe shape adds an extra layer of interesting things which can be explored here in an excellent visibility which can reach 30 meters, also helped by the sandy bottom of the dive spot. There are also ergs in the middle of the dive site.

This means that Shaab El Erg is an incredible dive site for underwater photographers, which can never get bored here.

Divers exploring Shaab El Erg can enjoy here a coral garden with hard corals, table corals, brain corals as well as majestic pinnacles.

The fish inhabiting the reef here include pufferfish, butterflyfish, Napoleon wrasse, triggerfish and bannerfish.

Moray eels, blue spotted stingrays and occasionally dolphins, reef sharks and turtles make Shaab El Erg a truly exciting dive for anyone.

The boats travel to more than 30 dive sites in the Hurghada area, so you will never repeat the same dive site twice! Our daily diving boat trips begin at 9 am and return between 3-4 pm. During the trip we will take you to two dive sites and we prepare lunch for you fresh on the boat between the dives as well as all day soft and hot drinks on the boat. We also have a zodiac and a speed boat at your disposal for divers that don’t want to spend their day on a boat or would like to execute drift dives. The zodiac and speed boat are a great option to explore the dive sites that are too far to swim to but not far enough to require a boat to get there. The zodiac is great for quick trips to closer dive sites to the beach, the speed boat has the capacity to carry 6 divers in addition to your guide and is great for longer distances. Both trips last around 20 mins from the beach the dive sites, and depending on the distance, you can swim back to the shore or the boat will wait for you to pick you up and bring you back. For our more adventurous divers, you can enjoy great night dives at our house reef and surrounding dive sites; witness the nocturnal underwater world as different marine species come out after the sun sets!
