We always endeavor to include a large variety of dive sites in every guests holiday, this ensures that you will experience the wonders of the Red Sea to its fullest extent.
Day trips include the spectacular Ras Mohammed Marine Park, Ras Umm Sid and Strait of Tiran, some of the most attractive dive sites in the Red Sea, at no extra charges, (except for the National Park entrance fees). We also endeavor to operate with a maximum of 8 divers per guide or even less on private charters. All the boats have restrooms, dry saloon areas, sundeck and dive deck.
We offer a free complimentary transfer service between your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh and our dive center on a daily basis.
On a typical day, boats usually depart between 8:00 & 9:00 and return approximately 16:00. Please note, however, that this could change depending on the dive locations and sea conditions.
Please also note that at SUNSHINE DIVERS it is compulsory to do at least one day's diving at one of the less demanding dive sites, prior to diving Ras Mohammed, Straits of Tiran or the wreck of the SS Thistlegorm. Boat night dives can be arranged on daily basis with a required minimum of 6 divers.
We will also endeavor not to break up existing groups diving from the same boat or change the dive guide, taking in consideration our customers requests and weather conditions.
If you would like to do some wreck diving, but prefer not to join a long liveaboard safari, we organize one-day trips (2 or 3 dives) to exciting wrecks including the world-renowned SS Thistlegorm and SS Dunraven.
SUNSHINE DIVERS can arrange guided shore dives to the following sites on a daily basis: Shark's Bay, Ras Umm Sid, Dahab & Nabq. Please note that some of the sites can only be dived if conditions and tides permit.
An experienced guide accompanies all shore dives. The great advantage when diving from shore is that you avoid the crowds that flock to the Red Sea annually, by scheduling your dives during quiet times! Those who visit the Sinai with their families can do one dive either in the morning or afternoon and spend the rest of the day with their families.
At most of the dive sites the shore entry/exits can be done with relative ease, and walking over wide reef plates can be avoided. A large local carpet is utilized for kitting-up on, thus avoiding sand and dirt from getting into diving equipment.
For those who prefer special diving trips we also arrange early morning dawn dives, or late afternoon sunset dives. Observe the coral reef and fish wake up in the morning or settle for the night in the late afternoon. Other shore diving expeditions, which can be joined, include the famous Ras Mohammed Marine Park, diving Sharks Observatory, Eel Garden and Marsa Bareika. Please note that, due to possible currents and adverse water conditions, the Ras Mohammed trip is suitable for the more advanced divers only!
Shore dives are arranged with a required minimum of 2 and maximum of 8 divers. Guided night dives from shore are possible with a required minimum of 2 and maximum of 8 divers.
