Who else can you trust to have the perfect dive spots and the matching organization where everything is about diving than the real pioneers of diving the Red Sea? Hossam Helmy and his team do what they do with an incredible passion, joy and true commitment. If anybody knows everything about diving in the Red Sea it’s them. At first... More

A really great diving camp with loads of diving options. The house reef is really good and you can dive as much as you like! We went on various diving trips outside the house reef, and even came to swim with wild dolphins...! I give Shagra my best recommendations.

If you want to dive, do it here. This place is a divers heaven. Dives: We had our own equipment we could store in small boxes in the diving center right next to the sea. Unlimited dives per day, night dives till 9pm I think. Tanks with water for every part of equipment. You could buy 15l tanks for 2... More

I went as a solo guest to Marsa Shagra for a week's diving, having done very little post-training diving and none since 2012: as such, I was probably the hardest type of guest for them to accommodate - no buddy and virtually no experience. From first to last, my experience was absolutely superb. The staff contrived to be both incredibly... More

This is one of the best diving centres I have been to in Egypt. We travelled as a group with experienced divers, novices and snorkelers and there was something for everyone. If you are a non diver there is probably not much for you to get stuck into but if you just want to lie on a beach for a... More

One of the best ecological camps Ive been too. The place is so cozy and the "Royal Tents" are definately the most preferrer option. The management is very professional & friendly and you will definately get the best of them during a football match. Diving with Marsa Shagara is very unique and memorable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since our founding in 1990, Red Sea Diving Safari has grown into a world-class diving destination. Our eco-diving concept has been internationally recognized as a model of tourism development and our villages offer you the experience of what has become known as “The Eco-diving Adventure”. All aspects of the RSDS experience promote nature-based tourism and maximum diving enjoyment. Our villages were created in consideration of diving enthusiasts and our diving program covers more than 60 shore-based and off-shore dive sites. We offer our guests a variety of diving possibilities including; unlimited diving on our house reef, shore dives, night dives, and boat dives to world-famous dive sites such as Elphinstone and the Fury Shoals. Our operation consists of 3 lodges; Marsa Shagra Village, Marsa Nakari Village and Wadi Lahami Village. Our team also manages Pioneer Divers - Marsa Alam. Our villages are small because we maintain a minimal-impact policy towards the environment. Our guests take advantage of an exclusive experience in a nature based atmosphere. Our villages are simple with traditional eastern style domed architecture and every guest room enjoys an unobstructed sea view. Each one of our villages has a maximum capacity which is based on the carrying capacity of the house reef. Visiting our villages is more than just your typical diving vacation. By the time your holiday is over, you will leave with a new appreciation for the serenity and simplicity of our nature based atmosphere. Explore ancient ruins of long gone civilizations and learn about the long history of the Red Sea region. Take a trek through the desert to observe amazing wildlife and the Bedouins of the south. Meditate under the mutating colors of the setting sun and then fall asleep star-gazing under a moonless night. ... more   less
