Port Ghalib - Day Diving & Dive Sites

Our boats are moored at the jetty within a very short walk of our new dive shop in the Port Ghalib Marina City complex. This is right on the waterfront and in the heart of Port Ghalib’s shops, hotels, and restaurants. Click here for transfer details.

Our shop has all the facilities you would expect – equipment rinse, luggage store and a place to have a post-dive drink – so whether you are joining us for daily diving trips, for courses or on week-long liveaboard safaris it’s a must-visit.

  • Standard boat diving includes two boat dives per day with guide, tanks and weights.
  • Approximate duration is 08:00 to 16:00-17:30 depending on the sites visited.
  • If you haven’t dived for a while, then we recommend you take a scuba review as required by your training organisation.

Day Trips

Listed below are some of the dive sites included in a dive package price, visited on a rotational basis:

  • Torfet Ali: Only 10 minutes north of Port Ghalib, the five sites of Torfet Ali all have deep, blue water and sections of steep drop-offs.
  • Marsa Mubarak: Our nearest and largest bay which provides a huge range of dive sites suitable for all levels of divers and snorkellers.
  • Ras el Torfa: Good visibility and excellent corals are a safe bet here with a good chance of seeing turtles, rays and even sharks.
  • Halg Salmaan: Two very different dive sites available here and between them a lagoon often visited by Spinner Dolphins.
  • Marsa Shouna (Shouni Kebir): A favourite spot for liveaboards and daily boats; one of those areas where you can have ‘magical’ encounters.
