Simply a class of its own!
This Extra Divers center is located inside the 5-star-hotel Mövenpick Resort El Quseir. The well-maintained hotel complex with its renowned customer service is situated close to a fantastic, truly unmatched house reef. Apart from the popular house reef diving, trips by speedboat or even day trips from Port Ghalib are available.
Egypt / Extra Divers El Quseir
Simply a class of its own!
Parts of the house reef grow up into the bathing zone off the beach. Initially the reef drops from 5 to 13 meters, at times reaching even depths of 100 meters and more. Thanks to its early recognition as a regional ecologic highlight, the house reef has always been treated with respect and in a sustainable way. Zodiacs with silent and ecofriendly 4-stroke engines are available by the jetty for house reef transfers. After the diving, nearby “Divers” bar is the place to be for a topside “deco stop” and chatting with your fellow divers with refreshing drinks in hand.
The sensational house reef offers remarkable underwater encounters all year round! Scuba divers can expect a splendor of rich coral growth and a numbers of fish that are rather rare these days in the Red Sea. Not only clownfishes and other usual suspects, but large batfishes, seamoths (pegasus), ghost pipe fishes and house moray Erna call this place home. From time to time, whale sharks, dolphins and manta rays make an approach and surprise divers. Also smaller and larger caves make for interesting discoveries. Diving on the house reef is conducted in a sustainable way, thus the number of divers per day is limited (we suggest reservations in advance.)
However, there is no shortage of alternative options with daily half-day and full-day minibus (van) trips as well as speed boat trips to about 30 spots around El Quseir, Marsa Alam and off southern Safaga. Depending on weather/sea conditions and number of participants, day boat trips to highlights such as Elphinstone Reef (from Port Ghalib, min. 50 dives required, also min. AOWD certification) and to the Salem Express (from Safaga, min. 25 dives required, also min. AOWD certification) are also available. Divers and non-divers alike are welcome to join the trips all the time.

Important Notice: New entertainment tax in Egypt
Unfortunately, the Egyptian parliament quickly, secretly and without warning passed a new type of entertainment tax, which must be paid to the Egyptian tax office from July 16, 2023.
Unfortunately, this amusement tax also applies to all diving services and so we, like all other diving centers on the Red Sea, must pay this tax to the state from July 16, 2023.
The tax rate is 10% on the full invoice amount and unfortunately, we must collect this 10% on the final invoice amount from July 16th. All other taxes such as the statutory sales tax (value add tax) of currently 14%. are still included in our prices.
Highlights & Specials
The almost unspoilt house reef with easy access and exit is located directly in front of the dive center. Its said to offer some of the most beautiful and diversified spots at the Red Sea. The El Quadim ("The Old") bay provides all over the year sensational diving for all level divers as well as extraordinary snorkeling in a unique, totally intact coral landscape with a uncountable amount of fish.
The dive center is managed ecological and sustainable, so the amount of divers is limited.
