Sharm el Sheihk (again)
« on: October 06, 2009, 21:02:08 UTC »
traveling to Sharm El Sheihk in November and looking for recent reviews/suggestions on both dive shops and local dive sites. We will be land based at the Sheraton Sharm Hotel.
I plan to take my own reg, wetsuit, and underwater camera.
If you have thoughts or suggestions, I would love to hear from you...

try camel dive based in central Sharm - long established with great apres dive facilities and good service.
Plenty of good dive sites, you will be well guides - pretty much all very busy.
DO get up early (around 4/5am departure) for the Thistlegorm dive- great WWII supply ship to dive. Note usually very (too) busy unfortunately....

I'm also looking for good dive companies in Sharm.  I've heard to get to the really good sites, a liveaboard is the way to go.  I've read a couple of reports on Undercurrent that seem negative on Emporer.  Does anyone have another recommendation?

Thanks for the reply.  Camel is one of the others I have come across often.  I will definitely check them out.
