Our diving center is located directly across from the beach and the resort’s jetty. In addition to unlimited access from the jetty, guests can easily reach the most beautiful diving spots both north and south of the Resort from the Diving Center, with over thirty weekly optional destinations. TGI makes it possible for guests to enjoy a 26-meter boat in the port of Marsa Alam, two boats of respectively 24 and 26 meters in the port of Hamata, as well as daily trips from the beach and on rafts.
You will not want to miss the encounters with the glorious coral fauna. Turtles, dolphins, morays and large pelagic fish swim undisturbed in pristine coral gardens and along reefs that plunge to great depth.
Guests have at their disposal a large fleet of high-end “Mares” equipment for snorkeling and diving, a reception, a well-stocked boutique, rinsing tanks, a comfortable swimming pool, and a classroom equipped with modern AV systems, in addition to a relaxation area with fresh and hot drinks, and a lab room to connect your device and watch photos and videos.
The Nitrox membrane compressor allows certified divers to enjoy daily dives with a mixture of up to 32%.
The Diving Center (SSI Center Diamond Center) awards all types of SSI international diving licenses, from the basic level to Open Water Diver and Dive Control Specialist. Furthermore, the Diving Center offers Discover Scuba sessions in the swimming pool at no charge, in addition to the possibility of a "sea baptism” for complete beginners, and a wide variety of specialty licenses for the more experienced divers.
Free Diving is currently one of the most popular water sports.
Apnea techniques are simpler than you might think; they allow you to experience the sensation of total freedom of movement, to interact with marine life and, as many dream, to swim with dolphins.
If you are not an experienced free diver, you can take one of the courses organized and promoted byTGI. For the more experienced divers, we offer a number of courses and programs that have been developed under the guidance of the technical manager Gianluca Genoni.
This course introduces the various aspects of free diving. It is a great way to assess your suitability for diving certification.
An introduction to the purest form of diving: you will learn breathing techniques and familiarize yourself with diaphragmatic breathing. The SSI level 1 course is suitable for acquiring the correct techniques to dive up to 20 meters (60 feet) in the safest and most relaxed way.
The SSI level 2 course provides greater knowledge about the apnea reflex of mammals, and how to respond to it. You will learn new and advanced equalization techniques and training methods that will help you break the 20-meter (60-foot) limit and develop the skills to free dive to a depth of up to 30 meters (90 feet).
The apex of the SSI free-diving program (level 3) takes you to a depth of 40 meters (120 feet). Diving well below the residual volume of the lungs, this is a specialized course for deep free-diving.
The jetty is located directly across from the Diving Center, allowing easy access to the sea beyond the coral reef via two platforms located at different heights with respect to the sea, and two comfortable ladders that allow for entry into the water. IMPORTANT: For divers with reduced mobility, a lift (with a chair and a 24V electric motor) is available. Additional diving services are also available for divers, including cylinder deposit and weights, always conveniently ready to be used by our guests. On the jetty, qualified emergency personnel and a rescue motorboat are always standing by in case of an emergency.
