Middle East Diving Holidays: An Overview
The present day Middle East is characterised by a colossal clash between the ultra-modern gltiz and glamour of countries like Dubai and the UAE, and the ancient architecture, religious tradition and cultural history of places like Jordan and Egypt.
One of the things that sets us apart from other companies is that we can offer both cultural trips and diving. And what a treat lies in store beneath the waves. The staple for UK divers is of course the Red Sea, and a trip to Sharm El Sheikh or less crowded parts of this coastline is the most accessible, world-class diving destination for those of us based in the UK. Undiscovered it is not but it is still home so some stunning coral and abundant marine life, especially if you know where to look. You don't need to look too far in Egypt to find some fascinating activities on land, whether that's taking a boat along the Nile from Cairo to Luxor taking in some of the country's most iconic sites, or scratching slightly further beneath the surface and heading into the western desert.
Apart from Egypt there is diving in the Middle East in the far less crowded Oman which has long been a favourite destination of ours and offers a very different diving experience to the Red Sea. And we are constantly on the lookout for new hotels and boats that fit the bill.
