Diving in Safaga

Safaga has crystal clear waters, abundant marine life and a huge variety of diving environments. One of the most exciting sites is Panorama Reef, which is named for being the largest reef in Safaga with the largest possibility to encounter unique under water.

Another highly recommended dive site is the Abu Kifan; a 300 meters long off-shore reef, got its name from the large gorgonian fan corals. It has a very steep wall which plummet to over 100 meters into the deep at all sides.

Both sites represent a riddle for divers as sometimes you can see different species such as groupers, Barracudas, large schools of Sweet lips and snappers to name a few.

Most of the sites we visit for scuba diving are also suitable for snorkelers. Ask about our programs for Snorkeling and try diving under the supervision of our professional diving team.

A storm had been building for some hours and was now blowing at gale force when the Salem Express struck the southeast part of a reef chain known as Hyndman Reef with catastrophic force. Striking the reef on the starboard side of her bow, slightly below the bow door, she not only ripped a hole in her side, but the entire bow door was forced upward.
