General advice and some but not all safety recommendations:

  • Always make your choice on the basis of safety rather than price
  • Visit several different centres before deciding
  • Choose a diving instructor who speaks your language
  • If your last dive was over three months ago, do a few adaptation dives to reacclimatize yourself
  • Check that the equipment is clean, and that is has been maintained and stored correctly (not in the sun, for example)
  • Check that the tubes, mouthpieces and valves have no leaks
  • Check that the diving suits are in good condition
  • Make sure that there is oxygen on the boat (in case of an accident)

Diving lessons:
Certificates and diplomas from the following bodies are offered by the diving centres: PADI, NAUI, SSI and CMAS. The clubs offer initiation dives and lessons for beginners, during which learner divers can get to grips with the correct reflexes and automatisms. Many clubs also offer courses for experienced divers.

Gear:
The clubs rent out equipment and wetsuits at competitive prices, but it is of course possible to use your own equipment. Wetsuits are required in summer and in winter. Check Sinai Scuba Diving Gear and Equipment

Protection of the coral reefs:
In order to preserve the natural beauty of the coral reefs, you will be asked not to wear gloves and not to touch the flora and fauna. Anyone caught disregarding these rules or damaging the natural environment runs the risk of being fined.
