Diving in El Quseir

El Quseir is an ancient city on the banks of the Red Sea in Eastern Egypt. It has been inhabited by humans for at least 5,000 years based on its proximity to the Nile River and to a major port in the Red Sea, making it an incredibly important city in the history of Egypt. It is sometimes referred to by its nickname, “the White Harbor”. Today, El Quseir has gained widespread popularity as an international resort town with sophisticated hotels, natural sandy beaches, crystal clear waters as well as stunning snorkeling and diving sites.

El Quseir is a great spot for shore diving, with reefs set just off the coast. The waters are clear and calm and reef fish abound. There are also wrecks to explore and even a pinnacle in open ocean. For the dive sites beyond the shore you can count on the comfortable, well-appointed dive boats and sped boats to whisk you there in no time and there are some liveaboard options too.

There are many other attractions that make El Quseir such a popular tourist destination. In the city center, you will find the Fortress of Sultan Selim with a wide range of cultural and archaeological displays.
