Dive with us - Extra Divers Worldwide

Egypt / Extra Divers Port Ghalib


The Extra Divers dive centre is located directly on the Corniche in the Port Ghalib Marina. There are several hotels in the immediate vicinity: The Palace", "Sands", "Oasis" und "Radisson Marina Resort". Along the esplanade in the marina there are many shops, restaurants and bars inviting you to wander in and stay a while. Divers have a choice between the beautiful house reef, minibus tours, and boat trips to the top sites in the area. The boat for day trips leaves from the pier, just a few steps away from the centre, to cruise to the famous Elphinstone Reef, among others.

Diving/Dive spots

The house reef, rich in diversity, is about 200 metres from the entrance to the Extra Divers dive centre and is one of the most beautiful in the south of Egypt. With plateaus, steep walls and depths ranging from 5 to 40 metres, the roughly 2-kilometre-long intact reef offers a variety of dive opportunities. Besides exceedingly beautiful coral gardens with an abundance of schooling fish and moray eels, you can also encounter eagle rays, turtles, napoleon wrasses, barracudas and, with any luck, dolphins and whitetip reef sharks. The centre’s own Club Cars transport the divers and all their equipment conveniently to the entry points and pick them up again after the dive.

Other dive sites can be reached in 15 to 90 minutes and are suitable for beginners and advanced divers. There are various attractions around the southern reefs that are within the centre’s reach, including Elphinstone, where there’s a chance of seeing oceanic whitetip sharks and hammerhead sharks, and the dive sites at Abu Dabab and Abu Saile. The dive centre’s range extends from Zerib Kebir in the north to Abu Dabab in the south. There are half and full-day boat or minibus tours on offer. After diving you can take a break from it all and have a drink in a cosy corner back at the centre.

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.
