Getting to Sharm from Israel wasn't easy, no direct flights, so we flew to
Eilat and drove 3 hours. It was well worth the effort. Lots of hotels
offering all classes of accomodation. We stayed at the Hyatt which was not
walking distance to Naama Bay, but did have good shore diving and a water
park. We dove with Lucky Divers and they were terrific with us and our two
inexperienced 13 year old divers.  Many companies will share a large,
comfortable boat, and Lucky Divers provided us with the same guide for just
the 4 of us for 2 days without even asking . We spent all day on the boat
as they are very slow, but the trip to Ras Mohammed was a highlight. The
corals are spectacular, healthy and very colorful. Lots of tropical fish,
little to moderate currents. We didn't need to go very deep (restricted to
60 feet with the kids) and didn't feel like we were missing much except
maybe a dive to see lots of hammerhead sharks!
Sharm in the summer is hot, very hot and I wouldn't recommend it if you are
not into diving. It's a big resort area with a couple of casinos, but not
much in the way of culture that we could see. The ATV ride into the desert
was lots of fun and a good way to spend our last evening.
