Marsa Egla

Tour Details

Marsa Egla is a breathtaking shore dive site located just 11 km from the city of Marsa Alam in the Red Sea. This site offers easy access to the water and is suitable for divers of all levels, from beginners to experienced. The bay format provides a comfortable and safe entry into the water, and the reef extends to the north and south, offering divers the option to choose which direction to explore.

One of the unique features of Marsa Egla is its sea grass, which attracts sea turtles and sometimes even dugongs. The location is also home to a diverse range of marine life, including scorpion fishes, moray eels, and an array of colorful fish species. Just 15 minutes away by car or minibus from Diving Station Reef Villa, this is the perfect starting point for all excursions to the sea.

Embark on a journey to the magical world of Marsa Egla and be captivated by the beauty of its underwater life, including the elusive dugongs. Dive into the crystal clear waters and experience the thrill of encountering these gentle sea cows in their natural habitat. With easy access from the shore, this dive site offers a unique opportunity for both novice and experienced divers to explore the Red Sea’s hidden treasures.

As you enter the water from the beach, the sandy bottom slopes gently downwards, allowing for a leisurely dive. The first part of the dive is a walk on the prairie where sea turtles are often seen and, on rare occasions, even dugongs. In the shallow waters, divers can admire the stunning coral formations, which are rich in species and color. As you dive deeper, you will encounter a rich and diverse underwater world, including soft corals, scorpion fish, lyon fish, glass fish, and a colony of anemones hosting the famous clown fish, also known as Nemo.

I got my open water in the 90s. I have not dove since 2004. I clearly needed a refresher. I'm so glad I did! Doing the advanced open water with Deep South Divers was a very safe and pleasant experience. Great group of people and the instructor was clearly a master. If you plan to dive in this part of the Red Sea, you can't go wrong with Deep South Divers.
Spent two days with these guys at some awesome sites. Samadai is pretty magical, with a strong chance of swimming with dolphins. Would love to have seen some dugongs but maybe next time. Well looked after by the team and would be happy to return.
I'd already heard many positive feedbacks about this diving center from other foreign divers, now I can definitely confirm it's true! The location is next to the beautiful Tondoba bay. The sea there is full of colourful & vibrant coral reefs as well as abundance of other marine lifes like blue dots rays, moray eels... and with a large sandy grass land where I saw a large eagle ray, and at least 10 giant turtles ...I also booked a boat diving trip to Shab Samadai where I spotted 17 dolphins in a crystal clear water! And I explored an area with many pinnacle and coral reefs with various shapes, sizes and colours. But the highlights of all were the underwater caves where the light can penetrate into them create a magical and spectacular scenery! So surreal, that at certain point, I could'nt even make the difference between reality and dream! All these, huge thanks to Muhammed Mustafa (the owner), Mahmoud (the manager), Ibrahim (the guide) and the whole team without which this diving trip would'nt be possible!!! Next time, if I come back to Marsa Alam, you'll be, for sure, my first choice! ✌
Although the initial promise „learning how to fly“ sounded almost too good to be true, it was not exaggerated. Diving really is one of the best ways to spend your time and the „Deep South Divers“ School with it’s amazing house reef is the right place to learn it. We had the great pleasure to do our open water license with Mohammad Mustafa who is an amazing teacher. During the whole course he was supportive, calm and of course very knowledgeable. We always felt safe, received study materials in our native language (german) and were picked up at our hotel daily. Furthermore the other team members were extremely friendly and knew their craft. We will definitely come back for further diving. Thank you for the great experience.
We had an a fantastic time diving with Deep South Divers!!! Our guide Moodi was so accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience!! The reefs and fish were beautiful, and they took us to some really cool dive sites. We hope to come back some day and will definitely dive with Deep South again - they are the best!!!Kelley & Julia
