From 16 May, 2007, the bay at Marsa Abu Dabab (Marsa Alam area) has been closed to all water-based activities. This includes diving, snorkelling, boating and any other activities that could interfere with the natural behaviour of the resident dugong (sea cow) population. Concern over the harassment of these creatures, and the threat to their continued presence, has led to this decision by the Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association (HEPCA).
Whilst limiting the activities of our daily diving and safari operations in the area, we are sure, like us, you can empathise with this this decision as a necessary means to protect this endangered species.
