Diving holiday in Hurghada, 1 week

Fantastic dives

A diving holiday in Egypt is always a fantastic experience. Few places can compare to the visibility of The Red Sea and no place offers more colors and diverse marine life. These are a few of the many reasons why Egypt is a world-renowned diving destination.

We will handle everything for you from you touch down in Hurghada until we drive you back to the airport. All you need to focus on is having an amazing time and enjoying the fantastic diving in the Red Sea. All dives are done from boats and you will be guided by experienced professionals who have extensive knowledge about each dive-spot.

On this tour, we have included an “unspecified hotel”. However, we do guarantee that the hotel will be a five-star hotel and will have All-Inclusive. Since the tour is with All-Inclusive, we also serve lunch on the dive-trips.

Food & Drink

You have All Inclusive at your hotel and on dive-days lunch is served on the boat. It varies how many of the hotel restaurants are included in the All Inclusive. In some hotels it includes all restaurants but on others it may be 1-2 restaurants that are included and there might be other restaurants where you have to pay for your meals.

Important: We think it is important to note that All Inclusive buffets offer decent food – but usually it is not amazing food. It is like that in Egypt (as well as everywhere else).

Which dive-spots can I expect to dive at on this diving holiday?
The exact spots may vary depending on the conditions, but here is a list of places we often visit.

  • Small Giftun
  • Big Giftun

Can I do a PADI Open Water Course or a PADI Advanced Open Water Course on this tour?
Yes, you can. Regardless of which PADI course you want, the price will be 260 euro. Notice that if you go for a course then the 10 dives that are included as standard in this package are replaced by the course.

How does it work with refresher dives?
If it has been more than six months since your last dive, then your first dive on this holiday will be a refresher dive at a safe spot.

Can I go on this holiday if I do not have a PADI-licence and do not want to take a course?
Yes, you can. In this case all your dives on this diving holiday will be try-dives with a max depth of 12 meters. It is important to notice that not all dive sites are super interesting if you can only dive to 12 meters – but you will certainly get some great diving experiences.

Diving licence

It is possible to get your diving license on this holiday. If you opt for that, then please be aware that the standard 10 dives that we usually include are substituted by the diving course. You can select the PADI Open Water Course on the booking form.

The course usually takes 3-5 days and is divided into three sections:

  • Theory: You learn the basic principles about diving
  • Confined water dives: You will have your first dives in a safe environment.
  • Open water dives: You get your first four dives in the ocean. Here you will use the techniques you have learned during your confined water dives.

Upon completion of the course you will receive an official PADI Open Water license which you can use for the rest of your live to get amazing diving experiences all over the world.

Vaccinations

We advise you to contact a medical specialist or your personal doctor or a licensed vaccination clinic. In case vaccination is recommended it is advised to bring your vaccination certificate when traveling.

The customer is responsible to take the necessary travel insurance that covers these costs. Bering Travel, or our local partners, do not have any responsibility for our customers not being covered by a necessary travel insurance. You have to arrange your insurance in your home country.
