Diving In Sharm El Sheikh Or Hurghada
By FastSubmitArticles.com
Egypt is a country with rich history, culture and heritage. Most people know Egypt on the surface - they hear about pyramids, camels and deserts. But as you get to learn more and more about Egypt, you soon find that Egypt has more to offer. In recent years, more and more people are starting to fall in love with this warm country. Do you know why?

For example, Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada have beautiful beaches where you can visit for relaxing sun tanning sessions. If you have a more active personality, you can even rent boats or go diving at the beaches.


Sharm el Sheikh is well known among visitors for red sea diving opportunities. The red sea occupies a part of the Great Rift Valley, and it is common knowledge that the sea is rich with minerals. When you have mineral rich waters, marine life thrives. The red sea records over one thousand invertebrate species and over two hundred soft and hard corals.

You can spend

hours diving within the sea, enjoying the wonders of nature. Species include soft coral (Dendronephyta species), Lionfish (Turkeyfish), Two-Banded Clownfish (looks very much like Nemo), Blue Spotted Stingray (these are at the sea bed), and more!

If your plan is to go diving at Sharm el Sheikh or Hurghada, the best way to go about arranging for a diving trip is to locate a diving operator. There are several diving operators located in the area, and you want to choose a reliable operator to work with. Unless you are a very experienced diver, try not to go diving on your own. That is because the local operators know the waters better than you do, and they can bring you around. They will also be able to provide you with the necessary equipment so that you don't have to bring everything on your own. The cost for hiring a dive operator is usually within the range of 200 to 300 Euros for about 2 to 3 days diving.

Before embarking on your trip, be sure to take care of the logistical details such as applying for travel insurance. Travel insurance is usually approved immediately, but try not to leave this important task to the last minute.

To make your diving trip more exciting, try to do some research in advance. There are many books available on red sea marine life that you can purchase. When you have better knowledge on the marine life, you will most certainly find your trip more enjoyable. Otherwise, when you dive, you will just be witnessing a whole world of unfamiliar but extremely colorful marine life. If you have more knowledge about the marine life, you can easily recognize them. If you like, you can even focus on one or two species and observe them more closely.
