This bay with a sandy entrance will lead you to a wall on the north side that plunges 25 meters before rising again to a "carpet" of garden eels at a depth of around 17 meters.

You will be charmed by its many pinnacles teeming with glassfish and lionfish on the hunt.

This stunning reef stretches for more than a mile from north to south, and is situated about three miles from the coast. It has one plateau to the north and one to the south, with two walls that plunge into the deep blue. The continuous exposure to strong currents has turned this reef into an explosion of life and color; a must-see for every diver. These pristine waters are also home to corals of all species (such as the huge fans of gorgonians, octocorals and black corals) in addition to hosting many reef fish. This dive is suitable only for divers with an advanced certificate. Safety buoy mandatory; minimum number of participants required.

HAMATA ISLANDS

Full day / Half day Diving and/or snorkeling.
Starting from Hamata Marina, it is a short trip along the coast. We will visit these beautiful islands that are surrounded by coral gardens.

The tour is available as a full-day excursion on board our comfortable boat, or as a half-day excursion with the Zodiac.

FURY SHOALS

Full day, 2 boat dives.
All levels - Diving and/or snorkeling.
The Fury Shoals atolls are among the Red Sea’s most well-known reefs. Normally accessible only through weekly cruises, the most famous points of the Fury Shoals can now be visited on a day drip on board the TGI boat from Hamata Port. Reefs such as Abu Galawa, Shaab Claudio and Shaab Maksour have extraordinary diving sites that teem with marine life of all sizes and shapes, with the incredible colors of soft and hard corals and all of the reef fish. Thanks to its external position and warm temperatures, the reef abounds with large pelagic fish, schools of barracuda and giant migratory tuna. The reef sharks, of course, are stable residents of the reef and, with a bit of luck, hammerhead and whitetip sharks can be seen in certain times of the year.

FREEDIVING

Indulge in the experience of apnea

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.

APNEA BASIC COURSE

This course introduces the various aspects of free diving. It is a great way to assess your suitability for diving certification.

APNEA · LEVEL 1

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.

APNEA · LEVEL 2

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).

APNEA · LEVEL 3

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.

Access to the sea
THE JETTY

Modern and well-equipped

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.
