Sharm El Sheikh is open for diving, says Camel Dive Club



Choose non-direct flights and take the plunge in warm Red Sea waters

It has been a whole year since British airlines suspended direct flights to Sharm El Sheikh.

However, there have always been flights from several countries taking off from and landing in Sharm. During the past months, travellers from all over the world, including many UK divers, have reached and are currently reaching Sharm either with direct flights from Italy and Belgium or with non-direct flights from various British airports, mainly via Istanbul and Cairo.

Turkish Airlines and Egypt Air flights have become the top choices of British divers travelling to Sharm El Sheikh, as they are offering very attractive prices and generous luggage allowance.

More than 30 businesses within the travel industry have recently met with the UK government in a bid to highlight how devastating the ban on UK flights has been for the pearl of the Red Sea.

Since the flight situation from UK remains unchanged, there are more and more divers who are choosing non-direct options to dive in Sharm, seeking world-class uncrowded diving and sunshine.

Camel Dive Club & Hotel is one of the few operators in Sharm El Sheikh that despite the difficult times of the Egyptian tourism sector has been consistently working as normal and guarantees daily diving trips by boat and shore diving every day.


“In comparison to other nationalities which had experienced halts on flights in the past, we have noticed that it took longer for British divers to consider alternative ways to reach Sharm El Sheikh,” reports Ornella Ditel, Sales and Marketing Manager at Camel Dive Club & Hotel.

“Historically, since the opening of our dive club thirty years ago, the majority of our guests have come from the UK. British divers are still very loyal to our operations and it is heartwarming to see that despite the extra efforts needed to reach us, we still count on their presence among our multinational clientele,” adds Ditel.

“As a compensation for the extra energies that our guests have to spend to beat Autumn and Winter rain with our spectacular Red Sea diving and sunny weather, we are offering very convenient deals for divers who decide to stay at Camel Hotel and join our diving boat trips,” continues Ditel.


“At the moment we have offers for 7 nights with breakfast at 4* Camel Hotel, plus 5 days/10 dives diving package and return airport transfers starting from 311 Euros per person sharing.”

Camel is the perfect hub also for solo travelers – that’s why their promotional rates also include unbeatable deals for divers who normally incur higher rates due to expensive single room supplements.

“Our Reservation Team is busier than ever helping keen British guests not only in booking their dive & stay packages, but also in providing a free service of flights’ searches and recommending UK based insurance companies, which not only cover diving needs but also travel and baggage related necessities,” concludes Ditel.
