Our Egypt Diving Blog

We love writing blogs. That way, we can share all our knowledge and experiences about a place with you. On this page you will find all of our diving blogs about Egypt. Hopefully they will inspire you to create some experiences of your own!

Amy's Life of Dive

My diving journey started on my gap year around Thailand, Australia and Fiji where I completed my PADI Open Water and Advanced on Koh Tao. I remember my first experience well, from the brief panic that I was breathing underwater to the realisation that there was a whole new world to discover. On my travels, I completed a few fun dives in Australia diving the Whitsundays and the Barrier Reef. I still kick myself to this day that I didn't dive in Fijiā€¦ one day!

The Dive of my Life

My most memorable dive - I was 18 at the time; I had just finished my PADI Divemaster apprenticeship and was starting work as a diveguide. I soon found myself developing the confidence and skills needed to lead dives myself.

Dispelling Scuba Diving myths

Like most people, I like to start a new year with New Year's resolutions. This year I won't be eating less, getting fitter or drinking less, I will be trying to set the record straight about some scuba diving myths that have been around for far too long.

Short Haul Winter Diving Destinations

As we (at least those of us based in Europe) are slowly stepping into the cold of winter and dusting off our winter clothing, here at Original Diving, we've compiled our list of some top short-haul winter diving destinations. Here's a selection of places you can get to for a short break where the snow won't be falling and the waters remain unfrozen. Enjoy!

Summer Scuba Diving Destinations

With summer fast approaching it's time to start thinking about summer scuba diving destinations. Whether it be the Olympics you want to run away from or another predictably cold and wet British summer, what better time to escape on a summer diving adventure? Here are a few of our top accommodation picks which also have fantastic special offers this summer, meaning you can save money too.

Nudibranchs - Facts About The World's Prettiest Slugs

Nudibranchs, sometimes more commonly known as "sea slugs" are some of the hardest creatures to spot on a dive. Although related to snails, these colourful little creatures have ditched the homes they carry on their backs as they have evolved. Similar to land snails, nudibranchs also leave a slime trail, full of chemicals, which can warn other slugs of danger, or be used to find a mate.

Divemaster Course - What it takes to become a Divemaster

It's very easy to place professional scuba divers in the "dive bum" category where for men, long hair, a distinct lack of t-shirts, and replacing most words with "chilled" or "dude" becomes second nature (I'm not sure what the stereotype for women is!) However, as I found out, becoming a PADI Divemaster is more demanding (physically and mentally) than it sounds.

Wreck Heads

Wreck diving can give as much excitement to a scuba diver as a roman coin does to a treasure hunter wielding a metal detector.

A (Blue) Hole New World

Blue holes, or offshore flooded caves are aptly named for the dramatic contrast between the dark blue waters of their depths and the lighter blue of the surrounding shallower waters. They are underwater sinkholes that were formed during glaciations when sea levels were much lower than today. As sea levels rose, the caves were flooded, leading to the creation of these ocean abysses.

I've just sat down with the pack you sent. Just wanted to say that it is a great first impression of Original Travel
