This was my first time in this part of Egypt. Wanted to dive the southern Red Sea. Stayed 4 nights at Wadi Lahami. So relaxing. Was amazing. Then was transferred for 3 nights at Marsa Shagra. I am a city person, so as much as I enjoyed nature, needed more comforts. Shagra was a nice balance to Wadi Lahami. Chose... More

I was staying at RSDS as part of a snorkelling holiday booked through Dolphin Swims. I stayed in a deluxe chalet with aircon. The resort of simple in a charming, rustic way and very clean. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The house reef there is fantastic! I spoke to a lot of people who were repeat guests and... More

We stayed in a superior chalet for four days..we enjoyed our time very much. Diving and snorkling are amazing even just beside the reef, diving is however pricy. Staff are super friendly cooperative and supportive. I cant dive without a hood and i forgot mine and no hoods were available for rent. Mohamed, the guy at the rental place 'dove'... More

While I felt a little daunted at first, before the end of the week I was chatting with the staff regularly and they would bring me my preferred drink before I'd even asked for it! You got a real sense that all the staff were proud to work there, from the cooks, cleaners and of course the dive guides. There... More

I totally loved this place. It is the best place for diving and snorkelling at the Red sea. Complete tranquility and peace. There is not a lot to do in surrounding area but that was also what I liked. Because it was away from usual touristic vibe you were able to completely relax and enjoy view, sun, sea and underwater...

We went to Marsa Shagra in May 2015 for one week of diving. Our experience can be summarized as follows: Diving: Large and professionally managed dive shop, equipment well maintained. Up to about 50 other divers (estimate) were in the camp with us at the same time, including large groups, mostly from Europe and Egypt. Dive shade can get crowded.... More

We took a group of students (aged from 13-16) to Marsa Shagra to learn to dive and complete their PADI Junior Open Water Qualification. The instructors were great and very patient with the students. They are very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and super helpful. A special thanks must go to Hisham, Maradona and Shawky for their excellent instruction and their calm and... More

I live in Egypt for 20 years and visited many diving sites. Marsa Shagra and Wadi Lahami, both owned and managed by Red Sea Diving Safari, became to be my favourites, especially when diving with my wife and 2 children (11 and 14), both PADI certified divers who did their courses here. Marsa Shagra is just the best place when... More

This daving base is an excellent place mainly for divers. This is an advantage. Snorkeling is also possible. On the other side it less convenient for people prefering sun bathing only. Other places like Elphinstone Reef can be reached in short time.
