Egypt is famed for its amazing historical artefacts, its rich culture and above all the vast Egyptian desert full of tons and tons of sand. However, one of the most abundant and rich aspects of Egypt lies beneath the red sea; which is home to some of the world’s most glorious species of sea-life.

Forget the aquarium; the best way to get up close and personal with the thousands of species of fish and other water creatures is scuba diving. There are loads of centres in the various resorts along the red-sea that will take you and your family through the PADI Junior Open Water Diver qualification which will teach you all the ins and outs of pressure and buoyancy regulation and then, through a series of smaller dives, ease you into a full blown dive out at sea where you might even get to paddle after a sea turtle or paddle away from a shark (although just a little one).

Open water dives usually also involved lunch on a lovely cruiser on the crystal blue sea and you can go along even if you’re not diving, and enjoy a little sunbathing.
