    Egypt/Red Sea recommendations?

    I'll be in Cairo for a couple days in November.

    Any recommendations for a good site/operator in the Red Sea?
    I've just got a couple days to travel there from Cairo and then get back.

    really looking forward to diving the Red Sea, but need some ideas of what's possible...

    Thanks!

    Oonas Dive Club Red Sea Diving Holiday Hotel, Oonas Dive Club, Sharm El Sheikh. Round trip from Cairo on Egypt Air $120. Being off season, Oonas will probably make you a special deal! See my post on

    I've been looking at Oonas and some others.

    Where did you find this $120 fare at?

    Depends of where you want to go, Dahab is my favorite place, very calm, very chill out.
    Sharm is good for diving, but very into parties, clubs, lots of people etc.

    You can find all dive operators in Egypt at Dive Centers Egypt

    Take care and enjoy, the Red Sea is simply fantastic
    I have over 15 diving websites, but these 3 are my babies: ScubaHerald, DiversJobs and DiveArea

    I might consider Dahab!
    Been having trouble getting a reasonably priced place to stay in Sharm!

    any recommendations on a place to stay in Dahab?

    Have you checked Oonas Dive Club? I know of nowhere else where the combo hotel/diving could be any cheaper.

    yes, i checked them.
    ended up going with another operator and found a good deal on expedia for the hotel.

    the problem is: i'm only in sharm for a couple of days and wanted to maximize my time diving, but most of the operators required a first checkout dive meaning i'd lose a day to the good dive spots.

    but i've found one that doesn't.

    Emperor Divers

    I know you've got somewhere but for anyone else, I've used:
    http://www.emperordivers.com/
    I found them to be a very well run and professional operation with instructors and guides of many nationalities.
    They do liveaboard and land based diving all over the red sea. Their website is pretty good too if you just want to research the different areas / options.
