Diving excursion to Marsa Alam


Many hours of lonely driving! Exotic names of small towns traveled with me, Port Suez, Zafarana, Ras Gharib, El Gouna, Hurgada, Safaga, El Quesir. These areas are full of coral reefs. My Egyptian friends Karim, Wessam, and Ahmed have definitely suggested that I go south to the virgin Marsa Alam area, where the "exploitation" of diving tourism was just approaching. From the well-kept tropical treasures ...... Years later, in 2004 I am organizing another excursion for HUE students and friends.

The duration of diving is not the real time.
All that "twists" around diving under water is often much more important. Your buddy’s, your true friends, your experiences, your travels.
