Share our blog post

There is something about Sharm el Sheikh that captivates most people who visit it. The clear blue waters, the golden sand beaches – everything about this destination screams; peaceful relaxation. However, what many tourists don’t realise is just how close to one of the best underwater aquariums in the world they really are!

SCUBA diving is one of the most exhilarating sports that you can participate in. It transports you to a magical place, your heart is pounding, yet strangely it also often provides an escape from the ordinary.

Fortunately, learning to dive doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult – there are plenty of
resources available, including online courses and PADI Open Water programs.

Learning to dive isn’t about buying the latest equipment – it’s about being comfortable
with using the basics. So if you’re looking for a way to dive right in you should consider
enrolling in a PADI Open Water course.

There are a multitude of reasons to start diving, but the main one is that it’s incredibly
safe. If you’re curious about learning to Scuba dive RSDC can provide an intensely
personalised experience no matter where you are from with our multilingual team of
passionate PADI Instructors.
PADI eLearning is the best method of learning, allowing you to begin your dive education at your convenience, using your desktop, laptop or mobile device, at home or work, and finishing your training in the water with a PADI Professional here in the resort of Sharm el Sheikh.
