      Egypt Dive Area : Safaga

      Safaga is a port town in Egypt, just south of Hurghada on the Northern Red Sea coast. Due to the remoteness of the best dive sites in this area it is best dived by liveaboard.

      What Can You See

      Diving around Safaga is included in numerous Red Sea liveaboard itineraries so you can enjoy unspoiled reefs and wreck dives. One of the signature sites of the Safaga region is the wreck of the Salem Express passenger ferry, which sank on a return journey from Mecca. Though there was tragic loss of life and as such exploration of the interior has been restricted, the wreck is still of historical interest and has attracted a variety of marine life from schooling snapper to network pipefish. Sha'ab Saiman is another excellent dive site with its pristine and exciting reef, full of bright corals harboring sweetlips, batfish, snappers, jacks and tunas. Other dive sites in the area may include Panorama Reef, Middle Reef, Ras Abu Soma or Abu Kifan.

      Due to its exposure, this area is not always possible to dive by day boat, thus a liveaboard trip gives you a fabulous opportunity to dive here. Our Red Sea liveaboards itineraries which include Safaga depart from Hurghada - look for northern itineraries such as 'Simply the Best' or a 'Wreck Special' from our liveaboard trip listings.

      Getting There

      Whilst a port town in it's own right, not many liveaboards depart directly from Safaga, instead they choose the more established departure port of Hurghada to the North. Hurghada has it's own international airport and also has domestic flights to/from Cairo.
