Red Sea Dive Guide


Project Details

The Red Sea is blessed with a unique ecosystem. It is home to 1,248 identified species of fish, out of which more than 200 are endemic, and 250 species of coral, out of which around 20 can only be found in the Red Sea. The sea that divides the African from the Asian continent is one of the few places in the world, where you can dive with hammerhead sharks, thresher sharks and oceanic white tip sharks on one and the same dive. Some of the most exciting underwater encounters imaginable can also take place in the Red Sea: dolphins, whale sharks, mantas and dugongs are often present here even if you need a fair portion of luck and a great deal of patience to find them. “The official Dive Guide to the Red Sea” is a book covering more than 50 dive sites in El Gouna, Shaab Abu Nuhas, Safaga and Hurghada. It gives specific information about each dive site including map, topography, description and dive plan and is a useful tool for everyone, who dives the Red Sea. It is available in English and German language and can be purchased in many local dive centres and dive equipment stores along the Red Sea. It is also available in the HEPCA head office, Hurghada New Marina. The income from every dive guide sold goes directly into community interventions. Please help us sustain the Red Sea communities through our conservation efforts and get your copy of the “Official Dive Guide to the Red Sea” today!
