Whether you’re holidaying with a group of divers, non-drivers, your family or just you and your partner, you’ll find that this beautiful city provides the perfect setting for a relaxing and amazing experience. The Red Sea’s waters are clear, warm and home to a huge variety of sea life; the experience of diving in this fantastic country should not be missed!

Here are six reasons to choose a diving holiday in Sharm El Sheikh.


Choosing Egypt for your diving holiday is a great choice, particularly if you’re looking for somewhere not too far from home. There are lots of flights from London, and other main regional UK airports, to the resort’s airport and flights to Sharm El Sheikh, lasting around 5 hours, from airlines such as Thomson are available year round.

Tourism and Leisure Facilities

Over the past 40 years, Sharm El Sheikh has gone from a sleepy fishing village to a bustling area where visitors can indulge their every holiday whim. Not only do we offer diving courses, but our sister company, Oceans Red Sea, offers other recreational activities like boat trips and snorkelling trips. If you’re worried about entertaining youngsters or friends who don’t dive, they’ll be able to explore the reef, albeit from a different angle. These are just some of the many activities on offer here with Emperor in Sharm.

Reasonable Prices

Visitors to Sharm El Sheikh will find that prices are very reasonable; you’ll find some luxury resorts for much less than you imagined, and you’ll be able to do other activities, such as boat trips, that you might not have planned. Do keep in mind that alcohol can be expensive so consider bringing your own.


The weather in Sharm el-Sheikh is dictated by the subtropical climate in the region, resulting in average winter temperatures of just slightly above and below 20°C and around 35°C in the middle of the summer. The sea temperature is about 24°C which makes enjoying the water whilst diving, snorkelling, and even taking a dip on the beach very easy to do.

Aquatic Life

Many divers will know that this region is home to some of the best diving in the world. One of the reasons for this is the incredible and diverse marine life that visitors can enjoy. With over 1,000 species, you’re sure to see a myriad of colourful marine life as well as wrecks, caverns and corals.

Other Sites

Sun, sand and the beautiful waters of the Red Sea are the largest draw for visitors to Sharm El Sheikh. However, if you’re an adventurous type, you can easily take advantage of some of the other wonders Egypt has to offer. Whilst the pyramids in Luxor and Cairo will require a day trip and possibly an overnight journey depending on how you’d like to travel, you’ll be able to visit Mount Sinai easily.

Now that you’ve got all your reasons to book your holiday, you’ll just have to get here! You’ll be able to find a number of Thomson flights to Sharm El Sheikh from London Gatwick, as well as other UK airports, making a trip to this diver’s paradise quick and easy. Emperor Divers is renowned for their high standards of friendly professionalism and safety. What are you waiting for?
