Whale Shark Encounter

Diving with Whale Sharks

30th August 2013

Diving with whale sharks ranks near the top of any diver’s bucket list. These gentle giants of the underwater world may look intimidating due to their enormous size but in fact they are known to pose no threat to humans, and munch their way through algae, plankton and krill, filtered from seawater through their enormous mouths.

Hamata Savings

29th April 2014

Hamata is the hotspot of the moment in the Red Sea. A favourite with Regaldive guests, Hamata offers a diving getaway that resembles the Egypt of old: pristine reefs, quiet dive sites formerly only accessible via liveaboard, and an atmosphere of total peace and relaxation. Being so far south, the waters are also at least a couple of degrees warmer than elsewhere in the Egyptian Red Sea.
