We (my son and I) did spend a week here just after the new year holiday period - occupancy was low (50-60 guests while during New Year they had 250 guests) so this could have had a, positive, impact on the experience. We came specifically for the diving and to get our open water certification. You can choose different sorts... More

Seriously, the dives are cool on the reef but you have to pay for everything in extra, especially if you want to make nice interesting dives (not from the reef) Staff is not at all nice, they make you pay a lot for each thing you need : airport transfert (really expensive...) , equipment, internet at the reception (not in...

Relaxed shore diving as well as excursion by rib or bus to nearby sites. Excellent house reef. Whilst there house reef had turtles, octopi, black tip shark , napoleon wrasse. Worth noting that diving packages are for days, not by the dive.

If you re looking to spend most of your time diving then this is the place. Good equipment, great location and great customer service. The food is good. But there aren't other activities to be done than diving. The camp is very close to Elphinstone and a lot of other awesome diving sites.

I've called my review that because Marsa Shagra is primarily a diving centre, something I hadn't realised before I went with dolphinswims.co.uk. We were the only snorkellers the week we were there although on the overnight safari we met other snorkellers from different companies. Being outside the main diving action, and being in a minority (about 5%) of English people... More

Marsa Shagra Village is a great spot for divers - whether you are just starting or have a lot of experience. The easy accessibility to a great house reef makes it simple to get a lot of quality scuba diving in every day - we had several days with more that 4 hours spent under water. : ) If you... More

This was our fourth trip to Egypt, and our first time to Marsa Shagra. We were not disappointed: that we could haul two teenagers out of bed at 6am for their first dive of the day tells you all you need to know about the quality of the diving- neither of them wanted to miss out!
