A Red Sea resort town has been highlighted as the ideal place to learn to scuba dive.
British travellers looking to try a new outdoor activity this summer have been encouraged to book flights to Egypt, due to the ideal conditions at the Red Sea resort of Taba Heights.
Clear waters, gentle currents and shallow dives make for the perfect place to learn scuba diving, the resort instructor Waterworld claims.
Nervous first timers are urged to try out the Discover the Red Sea half-day package, which can lead onto a full-day PADI Open Water course the very next day.
Nicola Osgerby, assistant operations manager of Red Sea Waterworld, said: “We strive to make our first-time divers feel as comfortable as possible in the water and so many people – ranging from eight to 88 – immediately come back for more.”
Furthermore, budding scuba fans can learn about protecting the underwater environment and the rare creatures that live in the Red Sea, thanks to Waterworld’s partnership with National Geographic.
