Abu Dabab/Dugong trips from Hurghada

| No TrackBacks
Now you can combine the fantastic wrecks, reefs and nightlife of Hurghada with a day trip to the famous Red Sea bay - Marsa Abu Dabab. Situated close to Emperor Diver's Marsa Alam Centre, this is a shore dive famous for sightings of giant green sea turtles, guitar sharks and its star attraction - dugongs.

The transfer is a worthwhile excursion in itself as you are collected from your hotel ready to enjoy the scenic drive through the desert to the dive site. On the way you pass the ferry port of Safaga and picturesque El Quseir, which gives you a glimpse of real Egypt including the ancient fort built by the Romans and renovated by British and French colonial forces.

Two spectacular dives await you on the world renowned sea grass of Marsa Abu Dabab. Giant green sea turtles are guaranteed and guitar sharks and stingrays of many varieties can be found foraging the sea grass for food. Normally a dugong can also be found munching away but you should also keep a look out for the smaller things - double ended pipefish, marbled snake eels, snake blennies to name but a few.
