Think Flexibly with Regaldive



For Red Sea enthusiasts looking for cheaper and more flexible holiday options, the answer, says UK based tour operator Regaldive, is to think outside the box. With increased flight capacity to Hurghada now available from London Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester, customers can benefit from more regular and better value flights when travelling to any Southern Red Sea resort via road transfer from Hurghada airport.

For divers looking to get away from the crowds, the vastly undiscovered resort of El Quseir can be reached by road transfer in under two hours from Hurghada. With over 30 dive sites within easy reach of the resort, El Quseir is the ideal location for experienced divers wanting to be at one with the marine life. Underwater photographers can explore the coral covered pinnacles, navigate the labyrinth of coral gardens, and glide through the narrow passages and blind alleys of Serib Kebir, the Rock and Sharm Fungani while admiring the macro life and nudibranchs on offer.

Home to some of the best dive experiences in the Red Sea, Marsa Alam can also easily be reached by road transfer from Hurghada airport in around three hours. Offering divers the chance to come face to face with Spanish dancers, turtles, eagle rays, great hammerhead sharks and whale sharks, Marsa Alam combines the very best of shore and boat diving. Located close to the resort is the fascinating site of Sha’ab Samadai, also known as ‘Dolphin House’. This site is frequented by a pod of around 60 spinner dolphins and is home to a network of caves and tunnels, in addition to a carpet of seagrass hiding moray eels, leopard groupers, goatfish, lionfish, masked butterfly fish and much more.

Andreas Elia, Managing Director of Regaldive, commented “Up until now, there was little flexibility on when customers could travel to many of the Southern Red Sea resorts, including El Quseir, Marsa Alam, and Hamata. Previously, there was only one flight per week from the UK to Marsa Alam for example, allowing very little flexibility to customers looking to travel on anything but a Wednesday. Now, with more regular flights into and out of Hurghada, customers can choose to travel on a day that suits them, and travel by road transfer to their resort, allowing them to see more of Egypt in the process”.

Seven nights’ at the Marina Lodge at Port Ghalib in Marsa Alam cost from £463 per person, to include flights to Hurghada, road transfers and seven nights half board accommodation. A four day boat dive pack costs from £138 per person, when taking advantage of Regaldive’s Buy One Get One Half price deal on dive packs*.

Seven nights’ at Roots Luxury Camp in El Quseir cost from £709 per person, to include flights to Hurghada, road transfers, seven nights’ half board accommodation and five days diving.
