Wadi Lahami – a dual Scuba Diving and Kitesurfing Destination

Published

on

Wadi Lahami is one of the only places you can dive the world-famous reef system of Egypt’s Fury Shoals from land. This small and remote village provides the perfect opportunity to escape from life’s pressures, and enjoy peace, tranquility, and diving that will take your breath away. The diving is suitable for all levels of experience, with some of the best examples of coral formations in the world.

A stay at Wadi Lahami offers guests a unique experience with its original tented accommodation dating back to the 1990s when the resort first opened. There have also been the recent additions of Deluxe Chalets with air conditioning, and a refurbished kitchen, restaurant and dive shade.

The naturally stunning location is the perfect spot for kitesurfing due to its flat water, large bay and soft sandy lagoons. The Kite Centre has recently been refitted offering a top-class service with a relaxed intimate vibe.  Oonasdivers offer holiday packages for beginners, experienced kitesurfers and those wanting to combine scuba diving and kiting.

Kitesurfing allows you to surf in, over and out of waves where you will learn to harness the power of the wind to jump and propel yourself across the water, and when there is no wind jump on a RIB and dive the pristine offshore reefs of the Fury Shoals. At the Kite Centre you will find the Yellow Penguin Bar along with a welcoming fire pit where you can relax and chill out after a long day kiting and diving.

Oonasdivers Kite and Dive Packages are designed for the perfect combination of both activities, and bespoke options can be arranged upon request.

Take an immersive dive below the waves off the Welsh coast using 360 VR: Common Spider Crab (Watch Video)

Published

A week-long series from Jake Davies…

Below the waves off the Welsh coast, there are a range of species and habitats that can be seen. However, you don’t have to venture too far from the shore to see them or don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. Using 360 videos provides an immersive feeling of being below the water and encountering many species and habitats from diving one of the most important habitats and species that aren’t often seen whilst diving. For more of an experience of being below the waves, the VR videos can be viewed using a VR headset.

Take a VR dive just off the shore and explore what can be found within the shallow waters of a sandy beach. Fish can be founding cruising amongst the seaweed and numerous crustacean (Crabs, lobster, prawns, shrimps) species can be found walking around the seafloor. Common Spider Crabs (Maja brachydactyla) are one of the largest crabs species found along the coast and during the early summer, they aggregate in large numbers to moult which allows them to grow.
